Sitebuilder Plus: Add Meta Tags and Keywords

Sitebuilder Plus: Add Meta Tags and Keywords
Note: We want to provide a few common and useful snippets for your use, but our support department is not able to assist you with editing code. They can help you with code placement.
All 3 major search engines have said that these keywords hold no weight in terms of ranking. If you have words that must be considered key to your business, you must have it in the content of your web pages. They have also noted that excessive meta keyword use(stuffing) could actually penalize you. If you use popular search words that the search engines do not consider relevant to your site, then they will also penalize your ranking. Please be careful if you choose to add meta keywords. 

Still, you can add meta tags in the head tag, using the following code.

<meta name="description" content="Free Web tutorials">
<meta name="keywords" content="HTML,CSS,XML,JavaScript">
<meta name="author" content="Hege Refsnes">

You can use any or all of these lines. The description is already available in Sitebuilder, but this snippet will override Sitebuilder.

Hi!

Bonehead questions:

HOW do I get to the "head tag" to add meta tags or keywords?

WHAT is the difference between a meta tag and keyword?

Thank you.

Hello,

 

For Sitebuilder plus sites, head tags can be added under the advanced settings as shown here. https://community.homestead.com/conversations/html-snippets/sitebuilder-plus-head-tag-html/5f2a9ada581809588453589f

 

For WebsiteBuilder sites, go to pages, manage pages and scroll down to the page SEO section. You will see a keyword and meta tag field. 

 

The difference is tags are added using coding while keywords are just text. Here's some great info on SEO. https://community.homestead.com/conversations/search-engine-optimization/guide-to-onpage-seo/606dc578995306385df2cc02
