Remember that these meta tags go into a lot of pages. When you use a "Default Page" they get these meta tags inserted. This is convenient way to get these tags filled in. When you create an "Article Page" Easy Blogs uses the meta tags that you fill in on the "Blog Entry" window.

Easy Blogs will look on your "Blog Entry" page for these tags to be filled in first. If EB doesn't find an entry in the "Meta Tags" section or your "Blog Entry" it will use the "Default Meta Tags." in the 'Custom Variables' area of the dashboard.

What does that mean? When creating articles you can use the "Default" tags if you like. Or, you can fill in the "Meta Tags" section in the "Blog Entry" section for better search engine optimization. Either way you need to do this procedure to make sure every page you publish has the meta tags filled in.

ATTENTION
All template modifications require that you:

a) re-publish, re-generate your pages in the blog software.
b) re-upload ALL affected pages of your blog to your SBI site.

Be sure to do this after you complete the steps of this tutorial.
