What are title and meta tags?

Article Rating: 1 / 5 Votes: 8

The title tag displays at the top of your browser window, essentially telling search engines what that page is about.  The title tag is also generally used as the title of your listing in search engine results pages. Meta tags give search engines further information as to what your site is about, and is information inserted into the code of your web pages.  Search engines may use this to more accurately list your site in their indexes. On-site factors like meta and title tags can have a great influence on your overall ranking and organic click-through rate.

Other than the title tag, information in the head area of your web pages is not seen by those viewing your pages in browsers.

How are title and meta tags updated?

You can find the title tags towards the top of your HTML code between the tags <TITLE> and </TITLE>. We insert a keyword rich title here. The other meta tags are also located near the title. 

An example of what the Title/Meta tags look like:

            <head>

            <title>Stamp Collecting World</title>

            <meta name="description" content="Everything you wanted to know about stamps."/>

            <meta name="keywords" content="stamps history, stamp collecting"/>

            </head>
