I am facing this problem whenever i go to publish my post. This message just pops up. I have no idea on HTML but I know that meta tags help your blog to appear on search engines. My previous blog had the same problem. Then i deleted the contents which automatically highlighted by blogger. Now i am facing the same problem. Can you please look at the picture & tell me how can i get rid of the problem.

Thanks for your suggestion sri. But it can not help me. It is not your fault but i don't have any knowledge on HTML. So unless someone gives me a detailed tutorial i can not do anything about it.

hello friend, its been nice to know that you have done a bit of research about meta tags. but my friend i would clearly like to state that you are getting this error because you are not allowed to add meta tags in your post. but yes you can add meta tags to your blog as a whole. and as far as you are talking about seo, the search engines take a look at the html of your template before going to the content so i would suggest that you do the following rather than what you usually do. here are the steps to be followed. 1. log onto your blogger account 2. go to layout and then edit html 3. now just below the line where body is written write your meta data. and thats it and you are done. i hope this will surely help you out. if you have got anyother problems you can surely contact me and i will try to solve your problem here is my link: http://blogging-madeeasy.blogspot.com

hello friend, i would surely like to help you on this topic but because mylot does not allow html in the posts i woud show you everything without an opening and closing bracket. here is the meta tag format: META name= "keywords" content="" please note: 1. the keyword or keyword phrases written in the content section should be separated with a comma. 2. leave the meta name sections as it is. 3. do not repeat more than three instances of the same keyword. 4. i would suggest that you use 3 - 10 keywords. 5. the meta tag should placed in "head" section of your template html you should use the meta tags even though a lot of search engines do not use the meta tags nowadays and they rathere concentrate on your page content.

Thanks friend for this information. So if i write keyword content then it should be used like this. Search engines crawl my sites contents. Don't laugh. I am just guessing.

maybe you can delete the meta tag that appears in the error. I think the meta tag is causing the problem.

Yeah you are right. But then my blog will not appear on search engines. Then it will be left alone i think. Because without visitors a blog has no value.
