I’ve found a few semi-related articles on how to add meta-tags to the head (without changing the definition of the page I believe). I need to do this in a couple different ways… first of all I need to add some static global meta-tags (so does everyone actually), such as the website-spark tag, but also Google Analytics, Yahoo verification and probably Bing as well. Secondly is being able to add non-global meta-tags to the head; i.e. page specific (not site-wide) description and keyword tags (and any other meta-tags I may want to add on a page by page basis). There are multiple developers who have different .wsp solution packages to do so… I'm just not sure which would be best practice, and also was wondering exactly how the implementation of these solutions would differ from on-premise to online SharePoint. Here are some of the solutions I’ve found.
It seems like I should be able to do something as simple as add Microsoft’s own meta-tag without unghosting the MasterPage… I don’t want to add another call to the server.
