I'm looking for a easy way to add meta tags to my D7 website. Not that I'm afraid of code or anything like it, but the content managers (Marketing => biggest IT noobs you've ever seen) want to add meta-tags by using the Drupal UI.

I've checked the MetaTags Quick-module, but it seems like this module is only capable of adding path-meta tags. Are there any alternatives? Or what is the most clean way to add meta tags do my Drupal 7 website?

For Drupal 7 the Meta tags module is the way to go:

The Meta tags module allows you to automatically provide structured metadata about your website.

MetaTags Quick is also good, but Meta tags has more features.

  • Thanks. I just stumbled upon Simple meta. I assume you find Meta tags more suitable for the job?

  • I haven't used "Simple meta" to be honest, but I've had no problems with "Meta tags" and I find it very comprehensive. As a side note, "MetaTags Quick" was originally developed as a stop-gap solution to the meta tag issue for Drupal 7, while "Nodewords" was ported over to "Meta tags". It's since become a good module in its own right, but I personally prefer "Meta tags"

  • In "Simple Meta" it's possible to add a title, description and keywords manually. Is this a feature in "Meta tags" as well? Because I don't find it right away...

  • I'm not sure really I've never needed to do that. It does provide some hooks which might help, have a look in the metatag.metatag.inc file included with the module

  • your module is great! It does exactly what I expected. But there seems to be a nasty bug somewhere... Could you take a look at this question drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/30509/…? Thanks in advance!
