Drupal Meta Tags

Meta Tags can be used to supply additional information about your content to search engines and other programs accessing your content "behind-the-scenes". They are now shown on your page, but do appear in the HTML source of the page. The Meta Description is used by Facebook when you link to a page from that site. It is also often shown below the page link in search result pages in Google, Yahoo, and Bing.

After you have changed the tags on a page or piece of content, you can verify that those tags are working using the Facebook Debugger, which will give you information about all of the Open Graph and other custom meta tags it finds.

Available tags: see the list of Officially supported meta tags for Nodewords & Metatags.
