Calgary, AB -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/24/2013 -- Over the years, there have been discussions about the effects of meta tag description on SEO practices. What type of meta tags are suitable for better ranking or does duplicate meta tag effects the ranking of website in Google's Search Results? Such kinds of questions have haunted webmasters over and over again. Today, the air over this issue was cleared by Mr. Matt Cutts, Head – Search Spam at Google.
In a video note released today, Mr. Cutts advised webmasters to avoid duplicate meta tags on their website. He said that it is better to have no meta tag description rather than duplicate meta tag description. This may cause problem with website's ranking in Google Search Results.
