The addition of meta tag in template is a very important factor for SEO. Actually, there are two main meta tags 1. Meta-description and 2. Meta-keywords. It helps the webmaster and search engine to find the description and keywords on your website. For the correct addition of tags see the below steps.

But on the same way it keeps importance for others search engines like Yahoo and Bing, while it's your choice that you implement Meta Keywords or not.

  • Go to template >>Click on Edit HTML.
  • Add the following codes below <head>
<meta content='DESCRIPTION' name='description'/> 
<meta content='KEYWORDS' name='keywords'/>
  • Change the DESCRIPTION with your site description and change the KEYWORDS with your site keywords.
  • Remember the maximum range for description and keywords text is 150 characters only.

3. Optimize Heading Tags

In the default templates, header tags are has started from h3 which is not good for SEO means to say that header tags should be starting from h1 and an end to h6. Many professional pro bloggers recommend h2 tags and really it is better for search engine. For optimizing the h3 tags to h2 tags contemplate the below steps.

UPDATE: I am using h1 tag in Pro Technify cause of certain reasons, but remember if you also want to implement h1 tag on your blog so don't forget this sentence that "H1 tags build high competition in search results, if you have high quality and unique content so go with H1 tags and if you don't have high quality and unique content so go with H2 tags and it is good for beginning.
  • Go to blogger >>Template.
  • For template safety, First backup the template.
  • Then click on Edit HTML.
  • Find the below code.
    <b:if cond='data:post.title'>
  •  You will see the codes in the template comparable with the below image.
