Auto generated meta tags description for blogger using python

Auto Generate Meta tags and Description for Blogger or Blogspot script written in python Sebastian Noack has written a very good script to auto-generate meta tags and description for Blogger or Blogspot.Previously we have seen how to add meta tags for each individual post and this script does that manually.

This generates the meta tags based on the feed of your blog and updates the html template at Blogger. It generates meta tags for the following pages.

The hompage
  • with the blog description 
  • with the most used tags in the blog as keywords 
The page of each post
  • with the first paragraph of the post as description 
  • with the tags of the post as keywords 

Unfortunately,it’s written in python language which is a bit complicated for Windows user(like me)who are not familiar with Linux operating system.

What we expect
He definitely have done a great job in creating this hack. it's however quite a challenge for ordinary blogger to understand.Blogspot user needs only to copy/paste the script into the Blogger template without any need to run a complicated python script.

See Screenshot from no-ack blog post -
Code to switch the meta tags, generated and inserted into the template by the script

  3. I am honored, that somebody else has written about my Python script. ;) I agree, that a simple snippet to copy and paste into the Blog's template would be much better.

    But if this would be possible, I wouldn't have even thought about writing such a script. I have researched a lot on adding meta tags to your blog running at Blogger. And it seems that everybody who cares about proper meta tags, add switches for each post on their own into the template. So I have written that script (primary only for myself) to make it easier to update the meta tags of my blog.

    But more and more people are getting interested into that script. For me and most other linux users running a Python script is not a big deal and the way you have to configure and run the script is just what people, seriously using a unix-like system are used to.

    Even though the script is cross-platorm (including Windows), I agree that for a Windows user, it is not that convinient, to get the script running. So I think about adding a simple GUI and providing an executable for Windows (using py2exe or IronPython), due to the large request. So continuously check out my blog, if you are interested in.
