Improve Your SERP with Dynamic Meta Tags

Many people still doubt the function of meta tags to improve the SERP and SEO. They say that this is no longer valid at such a time.

However, in this case, we must return to basic principles of HTML, meta tags etc are part of an HTML page, therefore, be worthwhile to complete it perfectly.

Behind all the debate about the meta tags that I read, one thing that might still be reasonable, and feasible for us to consider is the installation of dynamic meta tag to our blog page.

Why?, S
tatic meta tags cause all the posts in your blog being the same. and this of course will make it difficult, not only for machines but also people who do a search on google.

Small test I did, producing an interesting fact. meta tags dynamically capable of lifting a SERP from page 10 to page 1.

Here's how to install the meta tags dynamically on your own blogspot page:

Open Your Blogspot Dashbord -> Design -> Edit HTML.
Find the <html> tag, insert this code below the <html> tag:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>
<meta content='yourblogMaindescription' name='description'/>
<meta content='yourblogMainkeywords,
yourblogMainkeywords2,yourblogMainkeywords3' name='keywords'/>
<title><data:blog.pageName/> ~ <data:blog.title/></title>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.pageName + &quot; by &quot; + data:blog.title' name='Description'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.pageName + &quot;, &quot; + data:blog.title' name='Keywords'/>
<meta content='INDEX, FOLLOW' name='ROBOTS'/>
<meta content='your name' name='author'/>

Replace the words that colored red with your own words.
Save it, and you're done

Try doing a search on google. Did you see the difference?

Enabling Blogspot Archiving Function Wasn't A SEO Bad Things Anymore

You may find lots of advice about the importance of turning off the function of archives in your own blogspot.

The main reason of this advice is about duplicate content. They say that duplicate content is very hated by the Google indexing engine. I want to disprove their claims.

Often I do a copy-paste the url into google search engine. I do this so that my new post identified and indexed faster by Google.

Typically, in 2 attempts of url search, the results can appear in a google search.

But once I turn the archiving , this tricks returned no results in google search engine.

Google Search Return No Result

And when I turned it back on again, google search engine instantly found it.

So, how do you think ?, will you follow the advice most of the people, by turning off the function of archives, or you'll going to do an experiment as I did, in order to prove that my words are true ?.

Don't be panic. There is actually a peaceful solution to this problem. Because it is impossible Blogspot would violate the rules of its own creator, google.

Now, I will asks you a question. Have you ever heard about the following tags ?

link rel = 'canonical'

If not, you can read an explanation of these tags here: http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=139394

Briefly, the function of this tag is to explain that the url that included in the tag is the preferred version to be indexed by google search engine.

So, how do we put the code tag in our blogspot page, so that each of the main url will have these tags automatically ?.

Follow these steps:

Go to Edit HTML in your Blogspot Dashboard

look for the code tag <html>

place the following code after the tag <html>, so it will look like:

<link expr:href='data:blog.url' rel='canonical'/>
Save your work, reloads, and prove it by viewing the page source of your post. It should now contains:
<link href='http://my.blogspot.com/yourpost'  

Well, with this tag code, you can turn back the archive function of your posts, to be indexed faster by search engines google, and simultaneously avoiding the duplicate content.
