Meta Tags are important as they provide information about your site to search engine crawlers. Remember to update your Meta Tags both for your site and your individual pages:

 

To update Site Meta Tags: From the left side of the Editor, click the Settings icon > click SEO (Google) > fill in your Meta Tags under Site Title, Site Description and Keywords > click Done.

 

Note: Make sure that the Allow search engines to find my site option is switched on (green).

 

To update Page Meta Tags: From the left side of the Editor, click the Pages icon > next to the relevant page, click the Settings wheel > in the Settings and SEO window, fill in your Meta Tags under Page Title, Page Description and Keywords > click Done.

    Hi Daniel,

    Please note the snippet in the first query, I have removed the script and code starts with a < and ends with a>

    Still getting error message your tags include invalid char (!)

    <!function(g,s,q,r,d){r=g[r]=g[r]||function(){(r.q=r.q||[]).push( arguments)};d=s.createElement(q);q=s.getElementsByTagName(q)[0]; d.src='//d1l6p2sc9645hc.cloudfront.net/tracker.js';q.parentNode. insertBefore(d,q)}(window,document,'script','_gs'); _gs('GSN-977435-D');>

      Hi,

       

       

      Please provide us with the Google webmaster code and we can add the meta code for you.  Note that a code would look similar to this: I-H5tqzH-20I3tLewJvr4u_JIyWTiMGHNFlgQL5i23o

       

      This is the correct format when plugging in the meta code.

      <meta name="google-site-verification" content="Code from Google Webmaster tools"/>

       

      Note: When adding multiple verification meta tags, please make sure to add all tags at the same time. Simply add all of the tags consecutively, without separating them with spaces or commas. Please make sure each tag has open ('<') and close ('>') tags, and that they conform to the formats outlined previously.

      Many thanks, Barrios

      Go squared code is 

      <script> !function(g,s,q,r,d){r=g[r]=g[r]||function(){(r.q=r.q||[]).push( arguments)};d=s.createElement(q);q=s.getElementsByTagName(q)[0]; d.src='//d1l6p2sc9645hc.cloudfront.net/tracker.js';q.parentNode. insertBefore(d,q)}(window,document,'script','_gs'); _gs('GSN-977435-D'); </script>

      Hi,

       

      Please note I added the Google verification code for you, I saved the change but didn't publish.

       

      Unfortuately we don't support adding scripts to the header at the moment, and therefore I was unable to add the Go Squared code.

      Hello,

       

      You indeed do not have any meta tags in your header code. Please go to Settings > SEO settings > advanced SEO settings > insert the code there.

      In case you still have issues, please paste the code you wish to insert here.

       

      Thank you in advance.

      Hi,

      Please note that the Advanced SEO Settings field is for verification meta tags only.

      Only valid HTML tags <> will be accepted. Unfortunately, <SCRIPT> won't pass validation.

      If you are certain that your code is valid, Try using other browsers to open Wix. Recommended browsers include Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer (version 9 and above), ans Safari. 

      If you are still having issues, please provide us with the code.

       

      Thank you.
