Question: Is it easy to insert tags into a website? Where do you find the code and do you just type it in. Will it change the appearance of the website?
Answer: Tags / HTML are the language of Google. The HTML is the ‘foundation’ of your website. You may be using a WYSIWYG editor like Go Daddy’s ‘Website Tonight’ or Homestead’s website builder. Even Dreamweaver or Coffeecup or other HTML editors have graphical user interfaces.
The point in all of them is that Google only really ‘sees’ the HTML output. You need good TITLE tags, good H1 / H2 tags, good A HREF tags, etc. So you have to ‘figure out’ your editing program, and check its HTML output to see if it follows best SEO practices.
Usually, consult the help files or technical support on these issues.
