Tweaking the description meta tag

I attended the First Philippine Blogcon 2006 last Monday, September 25, 2006. It was a blast. It inspired me to continue what I'm doing. You won't believe how much blog money these guys are making.

Marc Macalua, the SEO expert gave us some tips on on-page optimization. One of his tips is to make a unique meta tag description for each page. He showed us how to do it in Wordpress, but unfortunately, he doesn't know about blogspot. =( Since I'm quite familiar with blogspot or Blogger blogs, I studied it and came up with the following code:

<meta name="description" CONTENT="<Blogger><$BlogItemTitle$> | </Blogger><$BlogDescription$>">
<Meta name="keywords" CONTENT="put your keywords list here<Blogger>, <$BlogItemTitle$></Blogger>">

Insert this code inside the <Head></Head> tag. This code will insert the title of your blog posts to the meta tag description followed by your blog description. It will also optimize the keyword tag, putting your blog post title after your keyword lists.

On other matters, I found out that most of them are also earning from Text Link Ads, so, I signed-up too. You can place your Text Link Ads advertisement on the same page with Google Adsense, since Text Link Ads are not contextual.

That's all for now. Happy blogtimizing!

Does this also work for Blogger For BETA? Do you have a code for BETA users?

Thank you!

Hi Kukote,

Thanks for this great tip! But I wanted to ask you...how do you optimize the description meta tag so that the description for your main page isn't just a list of your most previous posts?

Thanks for your help!

I'm still confuse, why appear error message "Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The value of attribute "CONTENT" associated with an element type "null" must not contain the '<' character." So what must I do ?
