Use the WEB_AUTHOR meta tag to create your website credits. Say no to SEO Tramp Stamps!


In my quest to find a dead simple solution, I came across two other meta tag generators. This plugin takes the best of both plugins mentioned below and makes a dead simple plugin where web developers and designers can leave their company name / authorship info in the WEB_AUTHOR meta tag.

Head Meta Data – Head Meta Data adds a complete set of tags to the section of all posts & pages. –

Simple Meta Tags – Allows you to set global meta tags and customize on each individual page/post. –


  1. Upload wp-colophon.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Visit the “WP-Colophon” settings page for more information.


What is the SEO Tramp Stamp?
A link back to your website in your client’s footer. It’s a lazy person’s way to get back-links.

What is a Colophon?
A statement at the end of a book, typically with a printer’s emblem, giving information about its authorship and printing.

What is a Digital Colophon?
Similar as above, but for websites. Leave your company name / authorship info in the WEB_AUTHOR tag.

Will using the WEB_AUTHOR help or hurt my SEO?
No. This tag is ignored by the search bots.
