Four Types of Meta Tags

There are four major types of meta tags that you need to be aware of. Some of them are not as useful as they used to be, but it won’t hurt to let Google know what your site is about and what content you provide.

Here are the four types of meta tags:

  • Title Tags​ – This tag is viewed by search engines as the title of your page.
  • Meta Keywords Attribute (obsolete)​ – A series of keywords relevant to the page in question.
  • Meta Description Attribute​ – A brief description of the page in question.
  • Meta Robots Attribute​ – An attribute meant to indicate to engine crawlers what they should do with the page
