What Is Meta Tag in HTML or XHTML?


Meta tags are used to provide information about your websites to search engine. They can also use to verify the ownership of the website. They are very useful for search engine optimization. Each system only process the meta tags that support them and ignores the rest. For example, Google cannot understand the meta tag that is used for Yahoo and vice versa. The meta tags are added inside the <head> tag of your page. The following meta tags are the most useful one.

  <meta name="description" content="Your  website description" />
  <meta name="keywords" content="Your  website keyword" />
  <meta name="author" content="Your name"  />
  <meta content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"  http-equiv="Content-Type"/>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type"  content="text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1" />
  <meta content="IE=EmulateIE7"  http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible"/>
  <meta content="index,follow" name="robots"/>
  <meta content="google webmaster string to verify the  ownership of your website" name="verify-v1"/>
  <meta content="Yahoo string to verify  the ownership of your website" name="y_key"/>
