How To Add The Meta Description Tag In A WordPress — 6 Comments

  1. I didn’t really know that I could change the description that shows below my title in Google’s search results. This is very convenient indeed because now I can start experimenting with descriptions to see what works and whatnot.

    I always thought that Google chose randomly the description that it would display based on the keyword the user searched for.

    Thanks a lot!

  3. Hi John,
    Yes, your article helps me much to understand the usefulness of the meta description tag in HTML. Honestly, it’s a very informative and useful article. I like this mostly because you are the first one who tells me the importance of the meta description tag. Now I realize that it’s not a neglected matter. It has a necessity for every URL. Thanks for knowing this important thing. Like me, others just like this.

    • Thanks very much for your comment Snigdha Alam and I am glad that you learned something that is very important for your SEO. Like you, it took me quite a while to understand how the meta tags were important because nowhere in any training that I have gone through was it mentioned. I discovered that by accident while reading someone’s comment on a blog article.

      This is why I decided to compile this tutorial thinking that it could be very useful for my readers to know about it.

      I wish you the very best,
