Meta Tag Pragma - SEO Checklist

Last updated on June 1st, 2023 by RGB Web Tech

How to use Meta Pragma Tag on your website? The HTML meta tag HTTP-EQUIV PRAGMA isn't used that much anymore. Since Internet Explorer version 5 they stopped supporting the tag. This meta tag was used for caching, meaning storing a web-page locally.

It ensures that secure HTTPS pages can't be stored.

By not using the pragma HTML tag, it doesn't influence your ranking with the search engines. The title of your page, the keywords and the description tag do influence your ranking.

<meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache">

An example of meta tag http-equiv="pragma"

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="pragma" content="no-cache"> <meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache" />

Where should you add this tag?

You may add this meta tag to all of your web-pages, 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!
