Meta Tags For SEO

#Meta Tag Optimization – Result, A Good Ranking For Your Affiliate Marketing Website

In the past couple of years some SEO specialists have said that meta tags are near dead and becoming obsolete. I disagree, meta tags are not dead or becoming obsolete. I still believe that meta tags are used by all major search engines and are very much in use and extremely important to search engine ranking.

title tags for search engine optimization

To prove this I removed my meta tags from 2 of my sites last weekend and monitored the search engines position of them.

My example:  Before I removed my meta tags my sites ranked 4 and 5 on Bing and Yahoo for my particular keywords for the sites.  All I did was change one word from each sites description tag and those sites slowly dropped out off sight in the search results within a few days.  Those site’s rankings were even worse on Google.  They disappeared almost overnight.  Needless to say I changed back to my original description tag pretty pronto.


All major search engines definitely use meta tags as a description of the webpage and for indexing within the search results

good meta tags to ranking

The title tag is another tag that’s one of the most important on page factors to consider. This is because search engine spiders read this tag first and place a high level of importance on the keywords found in it because it’s also used for the title of your listing in the search results. Correct title tag optimization is essential and when used correctly will result in a dramatic increase in your search engine ranking.

Note: The title tag should contain at least one or more keywords to be relevant to either an individual webpage you want ranked or if the subject of the website is about one thing in particular then a variety of keywords should cover the whole website.  Choose wisely.


Search engine spiders read the description meta tag next. This tag is often used as a website description in the search results. The description tag should also contain a few keywords


The keyword meta tag is also vital to search engine ranking giving search engine spiders a sample of relevant text and content within a webpage. You should also include if possible other meta tags such as author and copyright etc. These tags are not as important as the title, description and keyword tag though.

To achieve high search engine ranking optimize your meta data because proper on-site/on-page optimization will greatly improve your search engine listing.

  4. Hi Elton
    Thank you for your comment on my article on Meta Tags For SEO and for visiting my site.
    I would only use wealthy affiliate as my blogging platform and for WA’s membership for Forums as I have access to 24/7 live chat
    I also use the Wealthy Affiliate Cloud Hosting Service.
    It comes free when you’re a member of WA.
    Wealthy Affiliate also has its own website platform called ‘Rubix’.
    I get to create website for free on this as well using WA’s own WordPress system the owners created just for wealthy affiliate members.
    You should at least signup for a 7 day free trial and see for yourself.
    I think you would stay because there is not another program like it on the internet today.

  31. Thank you for your nice comment.
    All my websites are built with a wordpress platform that is unique to wealthy affiliate.
    If you were to signup you would receive two free sites with free hosting for them.
    If you joined as a premium member you would receive twenty five free sites and all of them would be hosted free for you as well.
    A great deal, don’t you think?
    Have a nice day.

  32. Hello. I created this website myself.
    I have been creating websites for some years now so you could say I have learned by my own experience.
    But are my sites and their content worth entering a contest.
    I let my readers be the judge of that.
    If you’re promoting your Survey program why not do that with your own website through Wealthy Affiliate?
    Its totally free to join and you will receive 2 free websites with free hosting.
    Its a great deal and you would be foolish to turn it down unless you already haver your own website.
    Please come again and thank you for your comment.
    Robert Allan
