Are Blogger Users Still Need Meta Description?

seo for blogger
For webmasters, meta description is the key to success. Because meta description can determine the position of a web page on search results. Today, all search engines use the meta description (one of them) to determine the sequence of a web page on search results. Thus, the webmaster will try to create a meta description as well as possible.

The same thing also must be done by bloggers, if they want their blog pages are at the top of the search engines. The content of the description of a site should be clear, concise and not too long. Games of the keyword in the description is also a barometer of the success of web pages on the search results. Each page of a site is required to have different descriptions, so that search engines are able to distinguish between pages. If not, the search engines will read it as duplicate meta descriptions. And the search results for your site's pages will be no maximum. In general, meta descriptions are written as follows

<meta content='blog-description' name='description'/>

Meta descriptions should be placed before the </head>. The question is, "Are blogger users still need meta description?". The answer is "yes". Then, "Are blogger users should put the meta description before </head> manually?". The answer is "no".

The blogger users no longer need to apply the meta description code in blogger xml template. Because blogger will automatically generate meta descriptions, if you have determined your blog description through the dashboard. All you have to do is as follows

1. Go to your blogger dashboard and click Settings. Then select Search Preference, you will see Description below Meta tags. Then fill in a description of your blog.

2. When you make a post, do not forget to give a description of post via Search Description. The content of this description will be the description for the posting.

This method is very beneficial, because it can avoid duplicate meta descriptions. For practice, try to go to your main page via a browser, such as Chrome or Mozilla. Right-click and select View page source (if using Chrome). Then you will see the meta description (if you have a description through the dashboard).
