    Would like to add some metadata to my website. Don't know if it will help with website traffic or not. Don't think there's anything purposeful in place at the moment...so maybe something/anything will be helpful.

    Website runs on vBulletin 4...can someone explain exactly where the metadata should be added (what file...where on the file...etc.)?

    Basically the goal is to have an improved site description when folks do search engine searches.

    Thanks

    Thanks mysiteguy,

    - Do I need to insert the meta info in a special place in ether those templates (between/inside specific code)?
    - If not...could this info simply be inserted at the very top or very bottom of the existing code?
    - What code does the meta info need to be wrapped in?

    Thanks again.

    Order doesn't matter for meta tag placement. Just paste in the meta tag.

    A meta tag is an HTML tag containing information for search engines about a specific website. Meta tags have collections of keywords and phrases alert search engine about your website contains information. So Metadata should be placed in the portion of each webpage you want to index by the search engine.
    - Title Tags
    - Description Tags
    - Keywords Tags

    Insert into header Tags

    There already is meta tags in vb4 so you’ll need to rewrite what’s there

    Meta keyword tags are completely useless. They haven't been used by major search engines for years, due to so many people viewing them as a place to be spammy with keyword stuffing. Do not use the keywords tag, Google ignores it but Bing will sometimes use it as a spam signal.

    Description tags are still used, however.

    you have to add your metat tag between head tags.
    like this :
    <head>
    <meta name="description" content="You meta Description"/>
    </head>
    You have to notice :
    1 - Meta tag is a self closing tag.
    2 - Dont use meta keyword, google wont consider it and it will waste your time.
