Meta Tags


Learn how to use the publisher meta tag to improve your site.

Defines the name of the entity responsible for publishing the content of the web page. It can help provide contextual information to search engines and may contribute to the semantic understanding of the page.

Code Examples

<meta name="publisher" content="Tech Giants Inc." />
Provides a clear and official publisher name, contributing to brand recognition and credibility.
<meta name="publisher" content="TGI" />
An abbreviation used as the publisher name, effective if the abbreviation is more recognized than the full name.
<meta name="publisher" content="Tech G" />
An unclear abbreviation of the publisher name, which might confuse users and search engines about the brand identity.
<meta name="publisher" content="" />
Leaving the publisher meta tag blank misses an opportunity to provide search engines and users with important contextual information about the content publisher.


  • Consistent Publisher Name
    Use a consistent name across your website to help improve brand recognition and trust among users and search engines.
  • Use the Official Publisher Name
    Ensure you're using the official name that your brand is recognized by, rather than abbreviations, unless your abbreviation is more well-known.
