META Tag Generator


Tool that will output META tags based on input page information.


META tag generators may be software-based or Web-based, bundled or standalone, simple or complex.

META tag generators are used for a variety of reasons:

(1) Some designers do not understand META tags and benefit from having their tags automatically generated.

(2) Other designers may understand META tags, but use automatic generators to save time, especially when many pages are involved.

(3) The third (and perhaps the largest) group includes marketers who are looking for META tag secrets. This aspect may be over-hyped, as META tags are becoming a smaller factor in search engine rankings.
