How to use the meta tag "ABSTRACT"

Meta name abstract has almost no influence

The meta tag abstract can be used to indicate in just a very short sentence what the webpage is about. So every webpage of your website gets it's own abstract-tag.

This meta tag appears to be equal to the description meta tag but they are different. The description meta tag is used by many search engines as a small text under the clickable title. The abstract-tag is hardly used by anybody.

But there are several search engines that use this tag to archive your page. And this increases your change that your website will be better archived, including a link to your website. But we don't suggest that you edit all your webpages to add this abstract-tag.

<meta name="abstract" content="text">

Example meta tag abstract

Add the following meta tag in the source of your webpage. The difference in spelling at the end of the tag is either you use     " /> = xml or "> = html.

<meta name="abstract" content="a very short description of your website ">
