How to use Meta Abstract Tag on your website? The meta tag abstract can be used to indicate in just a very short sentence what the web-page is about. So every webpage of your website gets its abstract-tag.
This meta tag appears to be equal to the description meta tag but they are different. The description meta tag is used by many search engines as a small text under the clickable title. The abstract-tag is hardly used by anybody.
But several search engines use this tag to archive your page. And this increases your chance that your website will be better archived, including a link to your website. But we don't suggest that you edit all your web-pages to add this abstract-tag.
Example: How to use the meta tag abstract?
Add the following meta tag in the source of your web-page. The difference in spelling at the end of the tag is either you use " /> = for XML or "> = for HTML.
Where should you add this meta abstract tag?
You may add the meta tags in all of your web-pages, so not only in the first index page. Make sure that on every page relevant meta tags are added. Add keywords and phrases that are relevant and correspond to the text on that specific page. It might be a lot of work to add specific meta tags to each page but you will notice in time that it works!
