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 again

    I have added following meta tag for this page -http://www.twinflame.com.au/#!twin-flame-workshop/c1etq

    <title>Twin Flame Workshop: Soul Mates | Soulmates | Soul Mate Connection</title>

    But on live website - the title tag is showing like this -
    <title>Twin Flame Lovers: Twinflame | What is a Twin Flame? - Twin Flame Ente</title>

    Is there any possibility to make first one live here?

     

    We need to add meta tags on back end, A small example for you - 

    Website home page have this title tag  - 
    <title>Twin Flame Lovers: Twinflame | What is a Twin Flame? - Twin Flame Ente</title>
    And this page have same title tag -http://www.twinflame.com.au/#!marymikhael/c161y
    <title>Twin Flame Lovers: Twinflame | What is a Twin Flame? - Twin Flame Ente</title>

    So, See what Google is looking like - http://awesomescreenshot.com/0db388865a

      Please note that your site title will be displayed in your browser bar while your site is loading. Once your site has loaded, the home page title will be displayed. If the site title is blank, then the original site name will be displayed.

       

      Please make sure to fill in your site and page meta data (title and description). If you do not want there to be any change in the browser bar when your site is loading, simply make the site title and home page title identical.

    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

      Hi Barrios,

      Google code is as below

      <meta name="google-site-verification" content="XHz2o3m8ls7O9KnIxt3G6lr-esgKG4WNU8h7ZVby1xU" /><meta name="p:domain_verify" content="7be0df568cd1dd2a5ea67fc7c612400b"/>

      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,

     

    Please be aware that your page meta data is given priority over your site meta data. This allows you to use a unique title and description for each page, relevant to that page's content.

     

    This means that if you have filled in your home page meta data, it will be displayed in Google search results. Remember, if it is deemed weak or incomplete, Google will choose the next most relevant content on the page to display, so make sure to fill these out fully.

     

    Your site meta data will be used when your page meta data is blank.

     

    In addition, the SEO Monitoring Tool generates a 'Home Page Report', meaning that your home page meta data is analyzed.

     

    Be sure to update your home page meta data (as well as the meta data of other pages). To add/modify meta data for your site or pages please click here.
     

    Please note the SEO Monitoring Tool analyzes your site according to the exact search phrases you enter into its initial screen. In this case, the search phrases you inputted do not exist in your home page title or description meta tags. If you would like these phrases to be included in your home page title and description meta tags, please make sure to incorporate them in your title and description organically (instead of simply listing them).
     

    Remember, whenever you make changes to your website, these changes need to be crawled again by search engines, such as Google, before they appear in search results.

     

    It can take anywhere from 1 to 3 months for Google to update its database. To speed the process you can re-submit, if you haven’t already, your website directly to Google through http://www.google.com/addurl

     

    I  hope this helps! Please let us know if we can assist you further.

    Sincerely, Leah Wix Team

      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.

      All the best, Or
