Some people argue that search engines do not use meta tags anymore but I think it’s better to include them since it won’t bring any harm if you do 🙂
The description tag is used to describe your blog. Some search engines will use this information to summarize your blog in their search listings. You should include your keyword phrases in the description tag.
The description tag should provide a 25-30 word description of your blog and you should avoid using more than 3 commas.
The keyword tag should of course include the “keyword phrases” that you are targeting in order of importance. Start with the most important and then proceed to less important but still relevant keywords. Do not include keywords that are not relevant to the theme of your site.
Do not repeat any word more than 3 times within the keyword tag. You should put around 15-20 keywords max.
Example of meta tags:
<TITLE>Enter your Title here</TITLE>
<META name="keywords" content="Enter your keywords here">
<META name="description" content="Enter your description here">
Enter your page's body text here.
