I am new in this digital marketing industry and learning about SEO best practices, but I am confused about the meta tags that how frequently should I change meta tags of website's pages?

Changing meta tags manually can be possible for small websites like 30-50 pages website, but what about e-commerce websites?

Is there any Auto Tagging tool? which can automatically generate meta tags for my website's pages and automatically change them after a particular time interval.

    Why do you want to change them? Do you want to include sale offers or something else? You have tagged the meta-description and meta-refresh. Can you explain the meta-refresh tag?

  • There are lot's of meta tags, specify which one you said in your question?. If it is Keywords meta tags then don't waste your time on it, google don't use it, checkout the video and read article And please use tags on your question properly. By mentioning too many tags wont give you better or instant answer. I also recommended you to to reference google guidelines first, because it seems you're following wrong way to learn seo.

  • I mean Meta Title and Meta Description. I know very well that Meta keywords are not important now. Annd Meta Refresh is a meta tag which is use to redirect page automatically and you set the time during after that page redirect to the new web page where you would like to redirect the page. For an example -- <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5; url=example.com"> (This will redirect the user to example.com after 5 second)

When you encounter one of the following:

  • Your content changes rendering the current title incorrect/incomplete
  • You've learned how to phraze it better (e.g. experience, or A/B tests)
  • SEO rules regarding best practice for meta tags change

Based on your question, I'm guessing you're a beginner, so to stick with beginner advice:

Just make sure every page has a unique title (meta title) and an unique meta description. Don't worry about the rest. Don't stuff it with keywords, create content for visitors, not bots. A good basis to start with it:

[the title of the page] - [sitename/companyname]

You can Update frequently. Whenever Google bot crawl it checks meta keywords, meta title, and meta description

    I don't think this answer is accurate. Google doesn't use meta keywords at all. The frequency with which Googlebot re-checks a page depends on many factors including reputation. Some popular pages will get recrawled daily, but must pages get recrawled only every couple weeks. Nov 21, 2022 at 11:20
