Blogger Meta Description
As you all of you knows that in the new Blogger interface the search preferences section is added which helps the user to make his/her blog more search engine friendly. That section really contains such great things and from today I'm going to discuss with you on each and every part of search preferences section. Well, So today we're going to learn the first part of search preferences which is Meta Description. In the old interface we were unable to use meta description in each and every post, we only used to add that description to homepage only by manually. But now every one can add it in every post and page without touching any HTML or XML coding. You just need to enable it from search preferences section.

What is Meta Description?

Meta description is an HTML or XML element that describes the web page to search engine's crawler. In other words it tells the information about your web page to search engine's crawler so that search engine may provide your web page in search results on proper place. It also shows in the search results page so that the user may know that what kind of page it is. 

Adding Meta Description In Every Post With Blogger

By default in blogger that is disable so we'll need to enable it after that we can use it. In this section the meta tags will enable for homepage only and the last section of this will show you that how can you use these tags for every post. Simply the follow the below steps.
  • Go To Blogger >> Settings >> Search Preferences
  • Look For Meta Tags Section and Tick "Yes" To Enable It.
  • Now a box will appear where you have to write your meta tag or description. Make sure that it doesn't exist 150 characters.
  • Click Save Changes!
Now here is one problem! If you are using custom blogger template then continue reading this. The problem is that sometimes custom blogger templates doesn't work with these meta tags but if you are using blogger default template then it's fine. In order to work properly meta tags with custom blogger templates you will need to insert an short XML code in your template which we will solve this issue. Simple follow the below steps.
  • Go To Blogger >> Template >> Edit HTML
  • Search For <head> and Paste The Following Code Below <head>
<b:if cond='data:blog.metaDescription != &quot;&quot;'>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.metaDescription' name='description'/>
  • Save Your Template and You have successfully added meta tags for homepage.
  • Now let's jump to next step. 

Adding Meta Tags In Every Post

After enabling meta tags for homepage, it's time to add these tags in every post. Now when you will go to any post editor or create new post, You will see "Search Description" section in the sidebar where you have to simply write your description for that post. This search description section was disabled but after enabling for homepage it is also enable for every post and page. 
Write your description for every post in that box and publish it. Is it not so easy?
