    Meta Tags


    Hi,

    1. Does the copyright meta tag (<meta name="copyright" content="Copyright 2017 Company Name">)
    have any value or can this be omitted?

    2. My website is in French & doesn't have any other language version in it. The URLs of the websites
    are like domain.fr/fr/accueil and so on... So, is it necessary to add meta language in the webpages
    (<meta name="language" content="French">)?

    Thanks in advance!

    1) Personally, I have not seen evidence that the copyright meta tag holds any SEO weight. That is my experience, and it could be wrong.

    2) when declaring a language in HTML5, it's best to include it in the <html> element. So to declare french, you'd want to make this:

    <html lang="fr">
