Adding Metatags on .cshtml Pages in MVC

This quick article is a response to a question I received today on Facebook. Please use the following procedure to add metatags on .cshtml pages.
Step 1
When we create a MVC4 Application using an Internet Template we get a "Shared" folder inside the "Views" folder on the root and in the "Shared" folder you will find a layout page named "_Layout.cshtml". Open that file.
Step 2
In the "_Layout.cshtml" page add a new section call inside the <head> tag, as given below:
In the above image, you can see that a section call is not required; in other words, whenever we need metatags on a page we can define.
Step 3
Now, open your .cshtml page where you wish to add metatags and add the following section reference:
Step 4
Now, open the page in a browser and you will see your metatags in action.
We can also make these metatags dynamic, in other words, we can control them from controllers.
  1. public ActionResult Index()  
  2. {  
  3.     ViewBag.Message = "Modify this template to jump-start your ASP.NET MVC application.";  
  4.     ViewBag.MetaKeywords = "abc";  
  5.     ViewBag.MetaDescription = "abc";  
  6.     return View();  
  7. }
Section on .cshtml page
  1. @section metatags {  
  2.     <meta name='keywords' content='@ViewBag.MetaKeywords'/>  
  3.     <meta name='description' content='@ViewBag.MetaDescription'/>  
  4. } 
Hope this helps.
