New Feature Alert! Improvement - Meta Tags & Search Snippets for Google Sites Pages

Good news! Something the Google Sites Top Contributors' team have been asking for (for a long time!) is meta tags for google sites pages. You should now be able to add page descriptions via the "Page Settings" dialog.

Click on more > Page settings > Add your page description and save.

That's it!
Meta Tags in Google Sites - A feature request from the Top Contributors' team.s

The thing that takes the time is the content ... BUT you need to make note of the dictionary's description of a meta tag, otherwise you will just be adding mindless keywords which, quite frankly, will look and sound like a big fat spam sandwich.

met·a·tag

noun Computers .
a tag in HTML that is inserted at the top of a Web page chiefly to describe its content and provide keywords for use by search engines.

So, describe the pages content, briefly. It really helps if the content of your page has original content in the first place, then naturally your meta tag will also me original.

The content of meta tags is often used in search snippets too (aka search results text).

So, let me know how you go with this new mega exciting new feature!

  1. Hi Beckystar, this doesn't appear to be enabled for me, when I go to page settings all I can change is the tick boxes next to "show page title, show links to subpages, allow attachments, allow comments" and the ability to change the page URL.
