Meta Tags are very important for your site. The meta tag is like a site description, what a site is all about. Search engines can understand your site through meta tags and get information about your site.
Search engines usually check meta tags for a related keyword. If they find related keywords according to users’ search, then your site will come in the search results.
So, now you can understand that meta tags play an important role in your site ranking. Now let’s see how to create and add meta tags to a blogger website. Blogger has not had that many options as compared to WordPress.
How to create a meta tag for your website/blog?
