Meta Tag Content Type

Last updated on March 25th, 2023 by RGB Web Tech

How to use Meta Content Type Tag on your website? The HTML meta tag HTTP-EQUIV CONTENT-TYPE allows you to specify the media type (i.e. text/HTML) and the character set. As different languages have different default character sets, this can be important in ensuring that your page displays correctly in all browsers. So using this meta tag can be very important.

This meta tag has no influence on your ranking with the search engines. But displaying your pages correctly is important to your customers so it will influence how customers will respond and validate your website.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html">

An example of meta tag http-equiv="content-type"

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 " /> = XML or "> = HTML.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1 ">

Where should you add this Content-Type tag?

You may add this Content-Type meta tag to all of your webpages, so not only on 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 and the language 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!
