How to analyze Meta Tags of current web page in Google Chrome

November 27, 2012 06:30 PST

What are Meta Tags?

The <META> tag provides metadata about the HTML document. Meta tags are typically used to specify page description, keywords, author of the document, last modified, and other metadata. Here's a code example of meta tags:

<TITLE>The text you'll see at the top of your browser</TITLE>
<META NAME="Keywords" CONTENT="A series of keywords you deem relevant to the page">
<META NAME="description" CONTENT="A brief description of the page">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=utf-8">

Meta elements provide information about a given Web page, most often to help search engines categorize them correctly.

How to check Meta Tags of current web page in Google Chrome

Meta Tags always goes inside the <HEAD> area and will not be displayed on the page. If you want to check or analyze the Meta Tags, you can right click the mouse button in the web page and then select "View page source", this feature is supported by most browsers.
