Add Description and Keyword Meta Tags to Your WordPress Template


The description and keyword meta tags for your WordPress template can be added using the template editor in WordPress’ admin section.  This means that if you change your template design, then you will need to add the description and keyword meta tags to the new design. 

Below are the steps to add your meta tags for the description and keyword:

  • Login to your WordPress admin
  • Choose the Presentation menu item
  • Choose the Theme Editor menu item
  • on the right hand menu choose the header or sometimes header.php
  •  Scroll down through the code to place the meta tags between the < head> and < /head> tags.  I recommend that you look for code that has the word “title.”  For example, my current WordPress template has code like this:

    <title><?php if(is_home()) { echo bloginfo(‘name’); } else { wp_title(”); } ?></title>

    Directly underneath the title, add your meta description and keyword.  As long as the code is in between the <head></head> tags, you will be fine.  But this meta usually follows the title.

    Add the following:

    < meta name=”keywords” content=”add your keywords separated by commas” />
    < meta name=”description” content=”add your description here” />
