How do you set meta tags?


  • Question

Neither under "Configuration » Search and metadata" nor " Configuration » System" there is the option to set any of the meta tags like 'description', which is valuable in controlling what search engines display as the 2-line summary for your website. Any chance that a module like 'Metatags' would be made available, or any alternative way to control these variables?

Thank you


If you're looking to optimize your standings in search results, I recommend you focus more on your content, especially your headlines and other semantic elements, since that affects search rankings more than meta tags these days.

See this discussion for more on the topic of SEO and Drupal Cloud.

Now, with that said, the Metatag module still doesn't have a stable production release (latest is beta), so it's not currently a candidate for inclusion in Drupal Cloud.
