To add meta tags for each post separately in Blogger, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Blogger account and navigate to the post editor for the post you want to add meta tags to.
  2. In the post editor, click on the "Settings" gear icon in the top right corner of the page.
  3. In the drop-down menu, select "Search Description".
  4. Enter your desired meta description in the text box that appears. This should be a brief summary of the content of your post, and should be no longer than 150-160 characters.
  5. Next, click on the "Labels" tab in the post editor.
  6. In the "Labels" section, you can add any relevant labels or tags for your post. These labels will serve as meta keywords for your post and can help search engines understand the content of your post.
  7. Finally, click "Save" to save your changes and publish your post with the new meta tags.


Note that adding meta tags alone does not guarantee higher search rankings or more traffic to your blog. It is also important to create high-quality, relevant content that provides value to your readers, and to promote your blog through social media and other channels.

Additionally, if you want to add more advanced meta tags for each post separately in Blogger, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Blogger account and go to the "Theme" section in the left sidebar.
  2. Click on the dropdown arrow next to "Theme" and select the "Edit HTML" option.
  3. In the HTML editor, use the search function (usually CTRL + F) to find the opening tag.
  4. Just before the closing tag, add the following code:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
  <meta expr:content='data:blog.metaDescription' name='description'/>
  <meta expr:content='data:blog.pageName' name='author'/>
  <b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'>
    <meta expr:content='data:label.name' name='keywords'/>
  </b:loop>
</b:if>


This code checks if the current page is a blog post (data:blog.pageType == "item") and then adds the meta description, author, and keywords based on the post's data.

  1. Once you have added the code, click on the "Save theme" button to save your changes. Now, each of your posts should have its own separate meta tags based on the post's description, author, and labels.


Remember to add meaningful and relevant information in the meta tags to ensure better search engine optimization for your posts.

It is important to note that modifying the HTML code of your Blogger theme can be advanced and may require some technical knowledge. If you are not comfortable editing HTML code, it is recommended to seek assistance from a professional or use an SEO-friendly Blogger template that allows you to add meta tags easily.


Adding meta tags is just one aspect of optimizing your blog for search engines. It is also essential to focus on producing high-quality content, optimizing your blog post titles, using relevant keywords, and promoting your blog through various online channels to improve your search rankings and attract more traffic.
