Here are some common meta tags that you may include in your website:

  • title: This is the title of the page, which is displayed in the browser's tab.
  • description: This provides a brief summary of the content on the page, and is often used as a snippet in search engine results.
  • keywords: A list of keywords related to the content on the page, separated by commas. Although this tag is less important now, it still has some relevance for search engine optimization (SEO).
  • robots: This tag provides instructions to search engine bots on how to handle the page, such as whether to follow its links or not to index the page.
  • viewport: This tag is used to control how the page is displayed on mobile devices, and is essential for responsive web design.
  • og:title, og:description, og:image: These tags are used by social media platforms to display a preview of the page when it's shared on their network.

It's important to note that these tags are not an exhaustive list and that you may want to include additional tags depending on your specific needs and requirements.

The following meta tags are commonly used in website development:

  1. Title tag (<title>) - displays the title of the page in search engine results and browser tabs.
  2. Description tag (<meta name="description" content="">) - provides a brief summary of the page content for search engines.
  3. Keywords tag (<meta name="keywords" content="">) - lists relevant keywords for the page, but this tag is not as important as it once was.
  4. Robots tag (<meta name="robots" content="">) - specifies how search engine robots should crawl the page, such as "index, follow" to allow indexing and following of links on the page.
  5. Viewport tag (<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">) - specifies the viewport size and scaling for the page on mobile devices.

It's important to note that not all meta tags are necessary or useful for every website, and overuse of keywords can lead to penalties from search engines. It's best to focus on creating high-quality, relevant content for your users, and using meta tags to accurately describe that content.
