WHAT is META TAG

Definition
Meta tags are a means to convey all important information about the web pages to search engines. so many types of meta tags but there are only 3(three) meta tags are often used, they include:

- Description Tags, 
- keywords Tags , and 
- Meta robots.

                                Description Tags
 
Keyword search
Description Tag is created to provide an overview of the contents of web pages. The text you want to be shown as your description goes between the quotation marks after the "content=" portion of the tag (generally, 200 to 250 characters may be indexed, though only a smaller portion of this amount may be displayed). Examples of writing meta tag description is as follows:

<meta name="description" content =,"All about
blogger, seo,  computers and technology ">

Some search engines like Northern Light, and Google doesn't use meta tags as a description of its search results. What they use is the beginning of sentences which exist on the page.
 I recommend that you use the contents of the meta tag description as the opening sentence.

Keyword Tags
Keyword Tags or keyword search, also called keywords, so keywords that you create a benchmark for the search engines find your web pages.
Basic syntax written of the keyword tag is :

<meta name="keywords" content="keyword1 KEYWORD2 keyword3 ...">
 
or there is also a write with a comma separator:

<meta name="keywords" content="keyword1, keyword2, keyword3, ...>

Both of them are same and there is no influence on search engines. The purpose of the use of a comma on keywords tag, for keywords are easier to read. but don't you ever repeat the same word more than 3 times,

because it will be considered spamming.  

an example of the wrong keyword tag.
<meta name="keywords" content="Blog, Blogging, walkblogger, blogger template, bloggingly>
  
In the example above, we do find the word "blog" is repeated 5 times, that will be considered spamming.
Remember, the keywords you use, it should be relate to the content of your web pages. because if isn't, that will be considered spamming too.

Meta Robots
The main purpose of the use of meta robots is to determine which web pages can be indexed by spiders.These tags are very useful especially when a website uses frames for navigation. Of course we don't want the menus in the frame to be read by search engines.The basic format of the meta tag robots are as follows:
<meta name="robots" content="index | noindex | follow | nofollow">

For example, if you want the spiders to read the main page, and browse through all links that exist then add the following:
<meta name="robots" content="index follow">

With this command, the spider will index your main page and schedule to index the other pages that can be searched via a hyperlink (<a href="">).
The following command will instruct spiders not to index and browse the links on a web page.
<meta name="robots" content="noindex nofollow">

that's all I know about, how to use the tags in blogger. I hope a little explanation that I wrote in this post, may be useful for you
~ to your blogging sucess ~
