How to change front page meta tags
Meta tags are pieces of code, visible only in the HTML code, responsible for the information about the website. Some of the most important meta tags are meta title and meta description.
In order to accomplish changing front page meta tags, you will have to follow these steps:
Download and Install the Yoast SEO plugin.
If you need help with that, check the following documentation.
Go to Dashboard (1) > SEO (2) > Search Appearance (3).
The menu automatically opened will be General (1). Here you can modify the SEO title (2) and Meta description (3) for the Homepage.
- SEO title (2) - is the title that people can see in the search engines.
- Meta description (3) - is the summary of the website (the 3-4 rows that appear under the SEO title).
The Yoast SEO plugin has these options also for posts, pages, categories, tags, formats, and archives.
