There is an extensive article in the WordPress Codex on how to add meta tags “back” into your WordPress templates, and explaining why they aren’t there to begin with. Now, Kafkaesqui’s Head Meta Description WordPress Plugin will help you easily add the post description or other description options back into your WordPress
head area for meta tags.
It’s a brilliant plugin, giving you the option to set the meta tag description to be the default description on your blog set in the Options > General panel, use the excerpt on the posts if one exists, or create a custom field key to override post or Page excerpts for the description. You can even set the number of words in the description to be pulled from the excerpt or Blog description.
You can find more plugins to help you add more meta tag information to your blog on the WordPress Plugins List for Meta Plugins.
