Meta Description for Each Blogger Page

Check out the code generator and video
tutorial for this hack in my new article:
Custom Meta and Title Tags for Blogger

Meta descriptions for your web pages can improve the chances of your site being found and clicked on. For those of you who tried adding such descriptions or keywords to your Blogger pages, you might have noticed there's no easy way of doing that.

This article describes the workaround I found for this problem and is a follow-up to the discussions posted here:

About the solutions mentioned in the articles above:

  1. If you add a "constant" meta tag to your Blogger template (as described in the first article), all your pages will have the same description and keywords. This defeats the purpose of this optimization effort and you'll have to go with the solution from the second link. However...

  2. The JackBook Dot Com code seems to be a bit outdated and using it might cause one of the following problems:

    • 404 error when trying to view any of your web pages, or...

    • The blog is displayed correctly, but the description and keywords are not seen by any meta analyzers.

Here are the changes you have to apply to your template in order for the descriptions to work correctly:

  1. Open the Layout panel of your blog and go to Edit HTML.

  2. Click the Download Full Template link and save a backup copy of your current template so you can undo the following changes in case anything goes wrong.

  3. Locate the following lines of code:

    <head> <b:include data="blog" name="all-head-content" /> <title><data:blog.pageTitle /></title>
  4. Add the following code immediately after the <b:include data="blog" name="all-head-content" /> line:

  5. Replace the http://johndoe.blogspot.com/ line with the URL of your homepage.

  6. Replace the word DESCRIPTION with a description for your homepage.

  7. Replace the word KEYWORDS with a list of keywords separated by commas and relevant for your homepage.

  8. Now, for each individual page from your blog you'll need to follow steps 4-7 again, but adding corresponding URL's, descriptions and keywords. For example, if your first article is about your pet, what you'll need to do next is...

  9. Add this code again immediately after the <b:include data="blog" name="all-head-content" /> line:

  10. Replace the http://johndoe.blogspot.com/ line with http://johndoe.blogspot.com/2008/03/my_pet this_is_an_example.html.

  11. Replace the word DESCRIPTION with a description of my pet.

  12. Replace the word KEYWORDS with pet,dog,dog_name.

  13. After adding code for all of your pages, save the template and check if it's doing what it's supposed to.

NOTE:

That's all there is to it. Please post your feedback and comments in case the code needs more tweaking.

  3. I've just added this to my blog; was looking for this since 2 days! thanks a lot!! but how can i do something like this for each post in blogger?? can I add meta keywords for every post?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hey Mansi,

    I've had a look at one of your blogs (http://ideasandgadgets.blogspot.com/) and the title, description and keywords seem to be the same for all your pages.

    I'm not sure if you did this correctly, but to give you an ideea of what the code should look like, I've written some meta tags for your homepage and the last 3 articles. Click here to open.

    If you look at this example, you'll notice the first paragraph is for your homepage, and the other three correspond to the permalinks of the last three post pages.

    Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to add such tags automatically, so each time you write an article you'll have to add another one of those paragraphs manually and change it accordingly.

    Another thing you might want to look at is the fact that your description is a bit too long and it might be considered as spam by Google. My advice is to keep it shorter and customised for each article. If you keep long and similar descriptions for all your pages, your site rank might decrease because of duplicate content.

    Finally, a good way to choose your keywords is to use a density checker like the one below. Too many keywords can also be considered spam.

    Thanks for the feedback and please let me know if these tips help.

  5. Hi Andrei - I still don't get how you add different meta tags for each page. Could you possibly outline how you add the new tags to a new page please and where exactly you place the new text? As I understand it, every time I make a new post, I have to update my template with new description/keyword tags. Where exactly in the template do I put these tags?

    At the moment, my individual posts show up in google with the same description every time, which is pointless. The individual post title shows up fine, but the snippet is just the sentence from the description meta tag.

    As an example, type the following words into google: michael thomas liverpool bursting. An article from my site will be the top article, but the snippet is useless as it's not pulled from tha article itself!

    Any help you could provide with these problems would be much appreciated :-)

  6. Hello Jaimie,

    I did look at your site and you indeed have the same description for all your pages. My initial article may not be very clear, so I've written a new one to explain things in more depth. Click here to read it - I hope you'll find all you need in there.

    One more thing: good luck in UEFA Champions League. I hope Liverpool wins this year in Moscow :)

  7. Hello ,
    Thanks for your wonderful help, i have been searching this option for many days, though its little time consuming to update the HTML code every time we create new post, but this really zooms the search engine.
    Thanks once again.
    Here is my blog:www.angrezy.com
    and here is my link where i have succeeded in adding meta tags to individual post:

  8. Yep... you did it, Angrezy :) Congratulations! Ideed, it's time consuming, but it gives you more control over your content - I think that's worthwhile.

    I'm soon going to post instructions for another popular hack: writing custom titles for each page. Make sure you check back soon ;)

  9. From some days, i am curious to know how can i add different meta description tag to each of my post pages. And luckily, through your comment on google webmaster blog i come across your blog. I try this on my blog at http://coolsmsjokes.blogspot.com/ and yes, it really works man. Really helpful for me. Thanks a lot again.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Tips is great, But there is lot of writing in template. There should be an option in blogger to add Meta tag

    ReplyDelete
  11. I was under the impression this is what "Labels for this post:" was for.. What purpose does that function serve if not that? I dislike that my posts all come back with the same keywords * description as the main/home page does.

    Thanks for the tip no doubt. But, I'm not interested in modifying every page even though I have few so far.

    I read an article that asked the question if google was neglecting blogger. I have to agree with the posts now. I don't see no interest by google to make a profit besides ads and they certainly are slowing in the development area as well.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I dont think is possible to modify the "Head" tag on the Individual post.

    ReplyDelete
  13. could you check my site (code). I think I did everything right, but google doesn't seem to notice at all. Is there something wrong with the code?
    Ps. It's in finnish language but it's still checkable right?

  14. Brilliant.you have given information very nicely. would like to praise more. but no time Mr.Andrei. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  15. i don't know if i explained the right way before.

    can i put a metatag for the general blog (after the head) and putting metatags for each post as well?

    It's possible?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hey Peculi,


    It is possible to create separate meta tags for your posts and for the main or home page.

    Think of this as a discussion between the server that hosts your blog and your visitor's web browser:

    - "I want to view the main page of this site", says the browser.

    The server decides which meta tag matches the main page and replies:

    - "If you want the main page, this is the meta tag for it".

    On the other hand, if the browser requests a post page, the server looks for another meta tag that matches and sends it along with its reply.

    That is why we use "b:if cond" clauses to assign meta tags and the exact procedure is described in the two articles I've written on this topic.

    I can understand that you're in doubt because the main page contains several posts. However, the URLs of the post pages are totally different and thus, the meta tags you assign for them cannot overwrite the one for your main page.

    Good luck with this hack and I hope you manage to implement it - do get back to me if you need more help.

  18. Hi Louden,


    I'm not sure how this is connected to the meta tags hack - maybe you can point it out if I missed anything.

    However, the problem is indeed strage. Incidentally, I've had problems with my atom.xml sitemap as well so I replaced it with "feeds/posts/default". Since you've redirected your site feed to FeedBurner, the sitemap I'm talking about should be here:

    http://americanlifeinthephilippines.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?redirect=false

    I really don't know if this will solve the problem, but it's the only answer I have.

  20. Wondering if you can help. I have a goldfish blog www.GoldfishCareInformation.com and I want to have a seperate title for each blog post I've made and separate descriptions and keyword meta tags.

    Right now I get some pretty good traffic from search engines but making this change can help increase my page ranking. Right now my title stays the same on all search results. I have a meta tag that I put in a long time ago now but recently bought a book on SEO in which I already now how to do it to websites I create but on blogger I'm unsure. Normally I use Microsoft Frontpage and it's easy adding in titles, description and keywords. This I need some help.

    Could you take a look at my source code and tell me what I need to delete after the (head tag) and how to do what I want by adding seperate titles per blog post along with description and keywords. If you can provide me a sample code for my blog that would be great then I can go in and do it for each individual post I've made.

    Hope you can help me with my goldfish blog. Hope to hear from you soon.

  21. Hello Jamie (Goldfish Guy),


    I looked at the source code of your blog and noticed you have multiple title tags and meta description or keyword tags for each page. I'm not sure how you did it, but that's no good.

    The good news is that I can help you implement the hack described above and as for title tags, I have a couple of simple solutions which achieve just what you want. In order to solve this problem, I'd need you to send the source code of your blogger template.

    Go to the Layout tag > Edit HTML section in your admin panel, enable the "Expand Widget Templates" option and then copy/paste the entire code in a .txt file. Send that to me by email, please. Alternatively, you could Download your Full Template and attach that to your email.

    Looking forward to your message.

  36. Thanks for nice trick for meta tag. One things i am wishing to know from you is that for each time we have to go in edit html page that is so time consuming and quit confusing too so can we get some tips for that or any solution that we can add some key word related to my post at the time of posting new post . Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  37. you can automate the meta description labeling by simply using b:if b:else/ but up to a limited point where you can make use of the dynamic post title, etc. Anyway thanks for sharing awesome tips, Andrei!

  54. Not just adding the meta tag in the head section would solve your problems but you will need to seperate the home page meta tag and the post page meta tag. Or else these meta tags would mess all your search engine descriptions up ...

    Here is a solution i have made for all of bloggers .. till now most of you don't know this ..

  59. This is a great work around technique, thanks for explaining!
    However, if I do add a meta description for each blog post, wouldn't it make the < head > section a bit long and therefore slow down the loading time of the whole site?
    Hopefully Blogger will soon allow a simple way to add meta keywords and description to each blog spot just like we can add labels when writing the post.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hello. I used this solution for description meta tag. After the tag <head> I used this:

    <META NAME="Description" CONTENT="">

    In this way each post page takes automatically the meta description tag with the same of the post title

    Hope can help

  63. Great post,
    I really had a need for something like this.

    I've still a few questions:

    * Does it make sense to add the following line to all your individual page entries:

    meta content='ALL' name='ROBOTS'/

    Or is it enough to add this once?

    * Also, I assume that you also can add the following line, when the posting is created by another author:

    meta content='ANOTHER AUTHOR' name='author'/

    *** Replace ANOTHER AUTHOR by the name of the person who wrote the posting ***

    * And now my last question, can you add meta descriptions to search results and does it make sense?

    I noticed in Google Webmaster Tools that some pages resulted in crawl errors. I’ve about 13 pages which are restricted by robots.txt.

    By instance:
    http://usability-vlaanderen.blogspot.com/search/label/video
    http://usability-vlaanderen.blogspot.com/search/label/posters

    I’m wondering if all pages with the label video and posters aren’t indexed unless they have a meta description and keyword or am I wrong?

    Thanks!

  70. Hai, this is exactly the particular article I have been looking for. It's funny how Google recommend us to insert meta desc and keyword to every page posted but do not give the instruction detail on how to do so (Or maybe i just didn't find it).
    Anyway, your description is really helpful and I have implemented it on my blog. I hope it turns out as I expect :)

  71. can i put spaces between keywords ,not different keywords one keyword ?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Question 1. Does having multiple meta tags in my code cause my blog to load slowly?

    Question 2. Does Google or any other Search Engine accept so many "if" statements and so many "meta tags" while crawling?

    Question 3. Is there a limit on the total number of meta tags that a code can have? I am imagining blogs that have over 100 posts and each post having its own meta description tag

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hi,

    The code you add in order to create custom meta tags for each post is executed on Blogger's server and visitors or search engine crawlers only receive one set of tags for a page when they request it. So the short answer to your first two questions is that blog pages will not load slower than normally and search engines do not see those multiple "if" statements. Look at the source code of one of your pages and you'll see exactly what a search engine bot sees: only one meta description tag and one meta keywords tag.

    The only aspect that is relevant for your third question is whether there is a maximum size for Blogger templates. As far as I know, this is not specified in their Terms of Service and the only limits refer to uploaded media files and the size of a single post. However, the size of a single "if" statement you may use for one of your posts should be no more than 500 bytes (about 0.5 KB) and thus, 100 such statements should add up to about 50 KB. As a comparison, a custom template may be as large as 200 or 300 KB, so I don't think these statements are an issue.

    Thank you for your questions. I hope you'll find the answers satisfactory and I recommend you check out the automatic code generator for this hack as well.

  77. Hi,

    By the looks of it, you have put quite a lot of effort into placing various meta tags on your blog and I'm guessing you have submitted it on Google Webmaster Tools and applied other SEO techniques.

    I'd say you now need to try and get some backlinks. You do that by joining communities which discuss topics related to your blog (forums, discussion groups, other blogs etc.) and building a reputation there. Make sure you let them know about your site and that your opinion is presented in a more detailed manner there. With a bit of luck, others will see your site and maybe they'll decide to give you some good quality backlinks. However, you should not place comments that are spammy. If you do, this whole thing will work against you.

    This suggestion is based on the latest article on Google's Webmaster Central Blog. Have a look at that for more details and skim over the other posts as well - it's best to get information straight from the source.

    I hope this helps. Good luck with your project and keep in touch.

    Cheers,
    /andrei_aga

  81. This stuff sounds okay as long as one keeps in mind, that the google search engine itself does not search on the 'META' keyword:

    http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/09/google-does-not-use-keywords-meta-tag.html

    However, I have read in one place that yahoo and ask.com look for that tag, but you might want to check to verify.

  83. Thanks for the tips. Will have to look into this since my keyword use sucks at the moment :P

    ReplyDelete
  84. It's undeniably true that Meta keywords are useless for Google ranking. I tried to figure this out in my new SEO post and I was thinking you'd like to read it and see if it sheds any light on this issue.

  85. please tell me how to use first paragraph of post as meta description

    ReplyDelete
  86. I don't recommend using such meta descriptions. Here's why.

    Besides, there's no easy method of doing that and the only way would involve using Blogger API.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Hi, I followed your steps above in adding different metatags but it's not working. There is no title and description found when I use Metatag analyzer tool although title and descriptions was there in the code.

    This is what is shown in the analyzer tool:

    Title: Found no title.
    The title is used by most of the search engines. Consider to add a title.
    Description: Found no description meta tag.
    The description meta tag is used by most of the search engines. Consider to add a description meta tag.

    That what showed up.
    Also, the sign " before my url and after my url is changed to "... I do not get any errors when saving the template but the only problem is the title tag and the description tag is not found using the Analyzer tool.

    Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  88. Hi,

    Make sure you use my JavaScript Wizard to generate the code.

    If that doesn't work, I'll need to know the URL of the blog on which you applied the hack and I'll have to see the exact code you used - so please send it to me by email, in a .txt file.

  99. Hi,

    I looked at the source code of your homepage and two of your blog's post pages. There are two "title" tags for each of them, two "keywords" tags as well and two other meta tags which were supposed to contain the description of your pages, but you actually placed the description in the "name" value of those tags.

    The "name" value has to be "='description'" and the description has to go in the content of those tags. Besides this, you need to have only one "title", "meta keywords" and "meta description" tag for each page.

    I recommend you remove all the tags you added manually and use my meta tag generator to create proper meta tags for your blog.

    Please let me know if you need more help.

    Cheers,

  100. so if we have 100+ post we need to add this code 100+ times into our blog for every single post we made

    ReplyDelete
  101. I admire what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the comments that this is working for you as well

    ReplyDelete
  102. @Anonymous: If you have that many posts, you may find it useful to create custom meta tags using my automatic code generator. You can write up to five pairs of custom tags at a time using it. None-the-less, if I were you, I would only create custom tags for the most important articles and I would focus on writing tags for the posts I publish from now on.

    @Technology: This is working for me and I can tell you I wouldn't be doing this if didn't feel rewarded by my visitors' feedback and reactions. That's why I appreciate comments such as yours.

    Thank you both for posting your questions and opinion.

  117. Hi Selina,

    I couldn't look through all of your post pages, but from what I could see, you only have meta descriptions on your homepage. Try using the automatic code generator in order to solve the problem and if that doesn't work, give me more details about the issues your encountered.

    P.S.: I liked the "Assassin’s Creed" wallpaper.

  121. Hi Daisy,

    Please use the code generator in order to create custom meta tags. Also, please make sure you don't write any special characters (like quotation marks or apostrophe) within the content of the meta tags.

    If this doesn't solve the issue, please send me an email with the code you wish to add. I will check it for you.

    Looking forward to your result.

    I have created a blog today. I have put 2 posts in it and added meta tags as you said.
    and tried to google search using the tags.
    but the blog wasn't searched!
    what can be the reason behind this?

    ReplyDelete
  162. It take a few days to catch-up...google spider will read your site eventualy....If your blog meta=tags contain simple words.like many other similar sites..you will find that your are listed ..but is harder to find...Better if your search using your key-words.
