Head Meta Data

[ Head Meta Data ] Update (2012/11/13): Head MetaData Plus has been massively refreshed and renamed to Head Meta Data. </update>

Head Meta Data adds a complete set of <meta> tags to the <head> section of all posts & pages on your site. Including meta information about your site is a great way to refine definition, enhance branding, and improve the semantic quality of your web pages.

Details

The Head MetaData Plus plugin is designed to complete a site’s head construct by including a choice set of <meta> tags, such as “author” and “copyright.” As a matter of practicality, the more widely used tags such as “description” and “keywords” have been omitted, as they are already present at most WP-powered sites. The metadata output via this plugin applies to the entire site.
