Hi Abie,
Thanks for the resources which I will go and check out!
I assume you haven't got a multi language site yourself?
Thank you!
Soraya

From what you write, this would mean different physical versions of the same post on the site. Not sure if plugins would do this for you.

But you can use a translate plugin that will show almost any language version to your visitor based on his/her detected IP address. In this case you have no way to control how it is translated and what it shows. I used this and removed later, do not remember why.

Hmm, I wonder why you removed it! But is does mean that it's something I could 'try out' without being too scared of it doing damage. . .
I'm still reading all about it and a bit out of my depth - but I'll keep on investigating.

Actually, maybe I'll install a plugin on my test site now, having read this.

Thank you Jovo!

Hi Soraya. Yes - my site is in English and translated into Russian. I used Google translate which wasn't the best of ideas.

The ideal way to do it is to have a Spanish flag at the top of your site. You often see it on websites and when you click on it translates the whole site to the chosen language. Put some tags in Spanish on your site too for Google to index.

Sorry, I can't help further. I'm sure others will jump in with far greater knowledge than I do to answer your question.

Thank you Paul! So you don't translate your site anymore if I understand right?

Yeah, Sorayacge. It's still on and ranks on Google's first page for my keywords. I'm too lazy to change it lolz.

Paul

Sounds great!

I thought that adding a meta tag to the homepage would be the same as verifying the site ownership for Google analytics for example - adding a tag to the head section - but it

Never hurts to ask!!

Thank you!! :-)

I keep the lines green.

Tutorials If you are on mobile, adding one or two characters, then delete you are able to.

If title and tagline (Just another WordPress site), settings > general edit and save changes.

Hi Abie, it isn't the meta title or meta description I'm looking for, it's putting a meta tag on my homepage when my homepage has the recent blogs rolling on it.
So I don't know where to go to add the meta tag.

Most likely no need for plugins.

Try this:
AIO General Settings, Webmaster Tools, scroll down to Miscellaneous Verification, this is the area where you should add various codes for such verifications.

Alternative if you use GP Premium theme, Appearance, Elements, Header, then probably choose Hook etc.

I do use GP but it says there are no elements found when I go there. Same with AIO general settings - just the licence key.
It should be a simple thing. On any other page I could just scroll down to AIO and add the meta tag but it's the homepage and it isn't static, so where do I access it to edit it? I mean it isn't actually a page but a place for the blog roll so I don't know where to access it in edit form.

In GP this is only in Premium version I think. Elements should be enabled, just one click, see screensho1

In aio, see the two screesnhost, it should be there. Let me know if you find these things.

I think terminology they use is confusing. This is not the usual meta tag/description which you are mentioning for posts and pages, so this is not something to edit of that type.

It does not matter static home page or not. Such things are under AIO, Search Appearance, Global Setting, scroll down and you will see meta description for home page.

But this is not what you need here. This is about some code verification.

Yes you're right, this is a meta tag to identify that it's my page for an affiliate program - flexoffers - do you know them? It seems like an easy addition to use for my site. I have emailed them but so far no response.
Now to the images, yes I have both of those, just not sure after that. If I click on elements in GP I see this. . .(and yes it's premium)

It is probably easier in AIO because you should only paste the code in that window which I shown (and save of curse).

In Elements, click Add New Element, then you have options, choose Header or Hook. I think both will give the same result, so try one. This is just to create a place to add such a verification code.

There will be then option to choose in Display Rules, so probably you can choose Home Page option. After that save.

This is a great addition in WP, I used it for Pinterest verifications and a few other things

Oh that’s great! I would never have realized that! Thanks so much Jovo, I will give it a try later when I’m back at the computer.

Hey Soraya,

In checking your profile for your website URL, I noticed you don't have your list of links, so I'm unable to see exactly which plugins your site uses; therefore I can only make a suggestion...

If your SEO plugin does not offer you an option to add the necessary meta tag, you could use a Headers and Footers plugin. See screen print below...

Hope you find this helpful.

Hi Trish, thank you for your response! However, I already tried adding it to headers section and it wasn't right. That was my question - where to add a meta tag on the home page if not to the header/footer?

if you goto seo in the left side bar when in your site dashboard you will be in the seo plugin options....
you will find in the list home page - goto this and add hte meta description...
if you have set a static home page then you can goto that page and add hte meta description...
and save ...
and you are done...

Hi, thanks but I'm not sure I follow you. I had a look at AIOSEO but I don't see the home page option you refer to.

if you are using aio then it is different to the seo framework....
this is where it is getting confusing helping people...
in all in one there is a tab down the side for the home page - search appearance...
