Meta tags and keywords

Post by DrTeeth » Wed Oct 17, 2018 8:17 am

Hi,
The help file says that keywords are separated by commas. No mention is made of any spacing. Doing a search of other sites, the HTML shows the keywords separated by commas, followed by a space.
In WYSIWYG WB, does a space need to be inserted by the user or does it get added automatically if needed?
Thanks

The keywords will be inserted "AS IS".
WWB does not modify the keywords.

So, all HTML meta tag rules also apply to WWB.

Thanks for answering Pablo.

Unfortunately, I am not sure exactly what you mean. Do I have to put spaces after the commas or not? "As-is" does not supply that information as it means just the words themselves and not any punctuation or spaces outside the words.

I am honestly not trying to be difficult or impolite even though the above may come across that way.

With kindest regards

DrT

Not to my knowledge. But I am not a SEO expert, so I could be wrong.
Note however that this is unrelated to WWB.

I wonder if a fellow end-user can advise on the correct/approved way to enter the keywords in the page properties, meta tags section?
When I have searched on how they should appear in HTML, there is always a space after the comma. It is not clear if *I* have to place the space in the WYSIWYG WB dialogue or if it is added automatically.
I realise that this is not strictly WYSIWYG WB related, but I would like to know what I have to put in, to get properly formatted keywords in the HTML.
Thanks in advance.

WWB does not modify the meta tags you enter in any way, the tags will be inserted "AS IS".
I think spaces will be ignored by search engines.

I recently noticed that keywords are not important any more, the "Description" and "Structured data" is most important...

Bluesman,

Thanks for the extra info. Will deffo want to check up on that. I will really want to get SEO sorted for my little site as it details the problems I have had with AliExpress and would rather make my own semiconductors than use them again.

Cheers

How much time should I spend on meta tags, and which ones matter?
Here is the answer from Google webmaster.
