How To Add Keyword Rich Meta-tags to Your Default Pages By Setting Your Custom Variables

Setting the custom variables in Easy Blogs software will insert content into the keyword and description meta-tags.


Meta-tags are the same as the Keyword and Description boxes that you fill in when you build a page with Block Builder so just use the same rules for content as you do when you build a page at SBI.

The only thing is that this is the default tags that will go on just the internally built pages of your blog (e.g. archives, archive index, etc.) so use your primary keyword phrases for your website.

IMPORTANT: Be sure that you have your template coded in order for these default keyword and description meta-tags to work. See Add Keyword and Description Metatags To The Default & Article Pages Generated in Easy Blogs

Step 1. Open the Easy Blogs software and go to Options and find the button, Custom Variables.

Step 2. Here you will insert your primary and some secondary keywords in the "Default Keywords Meta Tag" box and a descriptive sentence containing your website's themed primary keyword phrase in the "Default Descriptions Meta Tag" box.....just like you do when using Page Builder!

Step 3. Click Save save in the top menu bar and close.

Step 4. Now, go to the tutorial, Add Keyword and Description Meta-tags To The Default & Article Pages Generated in Easy Blogs to insert the necessary codes in the Default Page section of your template if you have not already done so.

The Easy Blogs help file says this in addition to using the custom variables.

Custom Variables Tags

There are a number of custom variables available at the global level to allow the advanced user to customize templates beyond the basic blog.

None of these variables are defined in any default template but exist to allow you to use these custom tags for any purpose.

You will need to edit your template to add a custom tag such as

Example of possible uses are page counters or banner advertisement code that you want to appear on all pages. If you ever need to change the value of a custom tag, just change the contents on the "custom variable options" screen and all your pages will be updated the next time you generate your website.

Tip: Here is a work around for putting AdSense code in your articles. Since AdSense only allows only 3 ad blocks per page this restriction limits your capabilities. Your home page and default template pages may have AdSense in the sidebars and bottom of the page, but not in the entries.

However, for article pages (and static pages) I like to have AdSense in the content. Since article pages don't change with every update you don't need to worry about the code getting parsed or overdoing the limit of 3 ad blocks.

To do this put the AdSense code in custom tag box #6 through #10. Doing this will allow you to use the tag instead of the actual code. This way Easy Blogs doesn't parse your code and render it unusable.

In your article page, make a call to the code with the tag [custom.tag.6%]. Take a look at this example article, You can see that I have inserted a table with an image and AdSense in the content area.
