How Fastoola's meta tag analyzer tool works

Enter the URL of any webpage in above text box and press "submit" button. Our free meta tags analyzer tool will extract and show you all basic meta tags added in the webpage.

Once you have generated and added all important meta tags to your webpages, the next step is to verify if they are in correct format and can be successfully processed by browsers and web crawlers. This is where our meta tags analyzer comes handy. It automatically detects meta tags present on the page and visualizes you how they will actually appear to search engines. By this, you can optimize your title, description and other important tags to stand out in search results and achieve a higher click through rate (CTR).

What information meta tags analyzer tool displays

After completing its analysis, meta tags analyzer tool displays the following information:

1. Title tag

  • Full text present in meta title tag of your page.
  • Optimal number of characters for your title.
  • Actual number of characters used in title.

In case a title tag does not exist on your page, you will see the words: "No Title".

Title tag is much important from SEO perspective because it is the only tag that can directly impact your ranking in search engines. A relevant and well descriptive title can give you significant benefit in terms of SEO ranking. Otherwise, an incomplete or poorly written title tag will result in competitive SEO disadvantage.

Search engines don't specify a limit for title length of webpages. However, most of them display only first 50 to 70 characters in their search results. This title length is now considered ideal in SEO industry.

2. Description tag

  • Full text present in meta description tag of your page.
  • Optimal number of characters for your description.
  • Actual number of characters used in description.

If description tag is not present on the page, you will see the words: "No Description".

Meta description tag briefly describes what information a webpage offers to its visitors. Description does not have any positive or negative impact on your ranking. However, if properly crafted, description can potentially help improve your click through rate by encouraging searchers to browse your page.

Google and other search engines don't specify an ideal length for description tag. However, they are able to display a 150 - 160 characters long snippet in their search results. Developers and SEOs now have adopted the same as standard length for their meta description tag.

3. Keywords tag

  • Full list of keywords specified in your meta keywords tag.

If our meta tag analyzer tool does not detect a keyword tag on the page, it will display the words: "No Keywords".

Meta keywords tag is like submitting a list of keywords to help search engines understand the relevancy of a webpage. Although still used by some developers and website owners, this meta tag is now deprecated and has no SEO value at all. Major search engines, including Google, now automatically ignore this tag.

4. Viewport tag

  • The content of meta viewport tag.

If no viewport tag is present on the page, the tool will show no information about it.

Meta viewport tag ensures proper visibility of your page on different screens and devices like desktop, tablets and mobile phones etc. It contains instructions on how browsers control and scale webpages. This tag has a crucial role in creating responsive themes and webpages.

Like other meta tags, a viewport tag is placed inside the head element (i.e, between <head></head>). Read more about meta viewport tag here.

5. Author tag

  • The name of the author specified in meta author tag.

If meta author tag is missing, you will not see any information about it.

6. Open graph meta tags

  • The presence or absence of open graph meta tags on the page

Open graph meta tags are used to control visibility of URLs on social media feeds and pages. These tags typically contain letters "og" in their property attribute, and can be seen somewhere in <head> element. In html source code, open graph meta tags look like the following:

<meta property="og:title" content="Meta Tags Analyzer Tool">
<meta property="og:description" content="Analyze your meta tags using our free meta tags analyzer tool.">
<meta property="og:image" content="https://www.example.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/mets-tags.png">

The use of open graph meta tags is very common these days as they help make content more noticeable to social media users and, thus, get more traffic and brand visibility for you. When you or your visitors post a link of your website on Facebook, LinkedIn  and Twitter etc., they directly target these tags to get data for displaying your content. It is, therefore, important that you always add well optimized open graph tags on all shareable pages of your website. Read more here.

Benefits of using our meta tags analyzer tool

Our tool provides you an opportunity to inspect if all the tags are properly optimized and function as expected.
