Adding Meta Data to Website

Can someone tell me exactly where I need to add meta data for my website please?

- Exactly which file or template do I add the meta data to?
- Where exactly in that file/template do I add the meta data?
- Does the meta data need to be entered in a specific area of the file/template (top, bottom, etc.).
- Is the file one of the vBulletin templates?

Basically I'm not 100% sure if there is any meta data at the moment...knowing the exact file/template will help me figure out if there is any meta data there presently. If there isn't...I want to add some.

Website is running vBulletin 4.2.5.

Thanks very much.

If you want to add custom meta tags such as viewport, theme-color etc, then create a new plugin at hook location parse_templates and add the following code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add each meta tag in a new line after the one shown above, just before the closing ';

Hey blind-eddie thanks for the info.

Yes...I do have key words entered in that area of the Admin CP. But was hoping to learn how to do it by adding the info to the proper file/template of vBulletin (or any other files for the site). This vBulletin Admin cp input area I think only allows individual words...I was hoping to also have some sort of meta-statement for my site. As with all of us...trying to optimize SEO as much as possible.

Thanks iA1. I was mostly hoping to place some meta keywords somewhere...and maybe some sort fo meta statement so that my site shows up better in search engine results (SEO).

If I can do this with the code you provided (thanks very much)...where exactly do I enter the meta info in the code (please pardon my newness to this)?

Maybe it would be easier if I provide a simple example. If I wanted to do the following for my site in terms of meta info:

- Meta statement = Discuss fast red cars with big engines.
- Meta words = fast, red, cars, big, engines

How would the completed code below look within the code provided above?:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Thanks very much.

p.s. Looks like the vBulletin quote system isn't showing the "code wrapping" very well.

Or instead of adding extra javascript to parse, you can just modify the headinclude template, which is the recommended place to add/edit additional meta tags.

Use this for keywords:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and instead of statement change that to description.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.
