      Hi Carley, Yes, I did follow your instruction and tried to make the changes however the following problem still persists.

      The internal pages are showing the metas of the home page especially the description and the keywords.

      Please provide the solution for this.

      HI,

       

      Sorry to hear that you are having troubles with adding meta tags. If i understand you correctly you want to change/update your header code meta tags.

      You are able to  add header codes to the <head> section of your site for verification or authorship approval. Header code supported services include Google Webmaster toolsBing Webmaster ToolsTwitter CardsPinterest VerificationAlexa site owner claim, and more!

       

      Note: In order to proceed  with Pinterest verification, you will first need to connect your own domain to your Wix site.

       

      To add header codes to your site from the editor, click 'Settings' > 'SEO (Google)' > 'Advanced SEO Settings', paste the code, and click 'Apply'. 

       

      The code should follow this format:

      <meta name='google-site-verification' content='Your Code Here' />

       

      Do not add the following:

      - Free text
      - Title, Description or Keywords Meta Tags 
      -
       Google Analytics Code
      - Scripts (<script>)
      - Robots (<meta name="robots" ... >)

       

      *Make sure to publish your site and complete the verification process with the third party service.*

       

      If you received an error when applying your code, please post it below.

       

      For more information, click here, or watch the video below:

       

      hope this answers your question and fixes the issue. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to get back to us.

    IE9 Document Mode

    Is it possible to change one of hte meta tags in the master template that we are using?

    The template we are currently using is forcing IE to display in IE9 document mode which is breaking javascript plugins loaded into Internet Explorer. Can this be changed.

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9,chrome=1" />

    This should ideally be :-

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1" />

    Our code works ok when it is set to this meta tag.

    Can you advise?

    Many thanks.

    Their are a lot of ways to add the meta tags to your website. You can upload it on server threw Filezilla software or can attach the meta tags manually at the backend of your website.

    You can check by simply pressing on the website Ctrl+u to see the source code of your website.

      Please note that if you want to view your new HTML website exactly as Google and other search engines see it, you cannot simply right click on the live site and select to view the source code or use Ctrl u.

       

      To view your site as Google does, is simply add "?_escaped_fragment_" to the end of your websites domain name. Eg. www.mydomain.com/?_escaped_fragment_

       

      Once you are viewing this version of your website, right click and select ‘View page source’.

       

      We can assure you that all of your pages’ meta tags are crawled and recognized by search engines.

       

      For more tips and advice about how to optimize your website, read our SEO Learning Center pages here. We also recommend that you use the SEO Wizard & Monitoring tool for a more in depth analysis of your site’s SEO.

    I'm having an issue with my meta tags for my website Tailor and Cleaners Inc.I have recently updated my setting and seo for my website.Lets look at my home page.I updated it to this information:

     

    This is the title: Tailor and Dry Cleaners Inc

    This is the description: Tailor and Dry Cleaners Inc provides dry cleaning, alteration and repairs, and shirts laundry services in Yonkers,NY

    These are the keywords: dry cleaner, tailor,alterations and repairs, shirts laundered, Yonkers,NY, Getty Square,South Yonkers

           When I go to the actual website and look at the actual code by hitting control +u, I see this:

    <title>tailor-and-cleaners-</title>

    <meta name="keywords" content="10701, New York, Yonkers, alterations and repairs, dry cleaner, dry cleaning, laundry, tailoring"/>
    <meta name="description" content="providing dry cleaning, alterations and repair services in Yonkers,NY 10701"/>

     

    Why is it they don't match.I saved the new changes an d published the site.In addition each page on the website has it's own Title, description and keywords using settings and seo but is not reflected when I look at the websites code by pressing ctrl+u instead each page is displaying the same tile,description and keywords which is below:

    <title>tailor-and-cleaners-</title>
    <meta name="keywords" content="10701, New York, Yonkers, alterations and repairs, dry cleaner, dry cleaning, laundry, tailoring"/>
    <meta name="description" content="providing dry cleaning, alterations and repair services in Yonkers,NY 10701"/>

    Any assistance will be necessary.It seems that it's displaying my old title, description, and keywords.I can't seem to update it .When I look at my actual information on settings and seo it looks fine, but when I look at the actual code it doesn't match.I'm very frustrated.

      Please note that you are not accessing your source code properly.

       

      We are using Ajax Crawling as a way for the search engines to read your websites code. With Ajax Crawling, your content, data and design are merged together and extracted far easier and quicker by search engines.
       

      Using Ajax Crawling however means that accessing your source code is a little different.
      If you access the source code the usual way (right clicking and view source), you will not see your websites content but rather a code, <meta name="fragment" content="!">, to tell search engines that we are using Ajax Crawling.
       

      If you wish to view your website source code, use the below examples of where to place '?_escaped_fragment_=' within your domain name in order to access the escaped fragment version of your website. Once you are viewing the escaped fragment version of your website, you may right click and select 'View Source Code' in order to access your websites source code.
       

      Example site - www.wixexample.com
      1. Home Page - place ?_escaped_fragment_= at the end of your URL
      www.wixexample.com/?_escaped_fragment_=
       

      Example site - www.wixexample.com#!AboutUs/c2414
      2. Individual pages - ?_escaped_fragment_= in place of the #!
      www.wixexample.com/?_escaped_fragment_=AboutUs/c2414
       

      We can assure you that your individual pages are seen by Google.

    Hi there

    We have followed all the guidelines with regards to adding meta tags to the website.  We are now trying to view them in the page source to confirm that they have been imbedded correctly, but the page source still has the following message:

    IMPORTANT! LOOKING FOR THIS SITE’S SEO CONTENT?
    This site's SEO content, such as meta tags and headers, is not here.
    This is because search engines, like Google, actually crawl the site's homepage via http://www.montagehealthandbeauty.com/?_escaped_fragment_=.
    Internal pages, like “Artistry Skin Care & Makeup”, also have their own special search engine versions, for example: http://www.montagehealthandbeauty.com/?_escaped_fragment_=artistry%2Fcyjf
    If you’re looking for this site’s SEO content, that’s where you can view it.
    Want more information about Ajax page crawling? Read Google's explanation here: http://bit.ly/ajaxcrawling

     

    Have the meta tags been added correctly and where are we able to view them - many thanks.
