HTML attributes on description show up on my blog.

Tumblr allows one description input for your meta description and blog description.

Meta description stores the data within the content attribute, and it's very important for your SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Unfortunately, this input allows texts only. So how do you make the HTML codes work on your description while keeping it SEO-friendly? Here's the step-by-step guide.

 

1. Go to 'Edit theme' page. Mostly likely, your-tumblr-url.tumblr.com/customize

2. Copy your description, texts only. 

3. Open up 'Edit HTML'

4. Locate <meta name="description" content="{Description}" />

5. Remove {Description} and remove it with your description.

6. Update and save.

Now you can use HTML codes on your description!
