Adds metadata to your content, including the basic description and keywords meta tags, Opengraph and Dublin Core metadata.
Add-Meta-Tags adds metadata to your content, including the basic description and keywords meta tags, Opengraph and Dublin Core metadata. It is actively maintained since 2006 (historical Add-Meta-Tags home).
Metadata refers to information that describes the content in a machine-friendly way. Search engines and other online services use this metadata to better understand your content. Keep in mind that metadata itself does not automatically make your blog rank better. For this to happen the content is still required to meet various quality standards. However, the presence of accurate and adequate metadata gives search engines and other services the chance to make less guesses about your content, index and categorize it better and, eventually, deliver it to an audience that finds it useful. Good metadata facilitates this process and thus plays a significant role in achieving better rankings. This is what the Add-Meta-Tags plugin does.
The following list outlines how and where metadata is added to a WordPress blog.
