    Geo Tagging is the process of adding geographical information to various media in the form of metadata. The data usually consists of coordinates like latitude and longitude, but may even include bearing, altitude, distance and place names. Geo Tagging is most commonly used for photographs and can help people get a lot of specific information about where the picture was taken or the exact location of a friend who logged on to a service.

    GEO - Geographically Tagging .... Geo tagging is describing itself already. Just like tagging a picture (In common and publicly in Facebook) to let other know about them. Exactly same with GEO tagging. For example if you are providing services or product in special area only like new york then you can use this tag to ease search engines to index you accordingly.

    Google doesn’t pay much attention to meta geo tags because better ranking signals exist, as far as geographic targeting is concerned. You should pay attention to your domain name (things like gTLD or ccTLD), the server’s IP address and definitely to the content itself. Google Webmaster Tools can also help you in associating a particular website with a geographic area; even if it’s a subdomain or a subdirectory – you can still use this feature for geo-targeting purposes.

    Here is geotagging using Long FileNames... Very easy



    brown bear beside seacrest road 49°14'14.7N 119°34'12.9W 20190522114245.mpg

    This is the FileName.. after taking the video..
    I went to google Earth and picked a location nearby and used that GeoLocation And added it to the FN...
    Filenames are there to be seen. MetaData and tagging isn't as simple.

    GEO tagging is a game that you play with GEO Metro cars. Whichever car is tagged tries to ram another GEO Metro. When that happens the next GEO Metro becomes the aggressor to ram the next GEO Metro to pass the tag along. The game does not end until only one GEO Metro is still driveable.

    Hello,

    Google will not pay much attention because standing signs exist to meta geo-tags, so much as geographic targeting is concerned. You should pay attention to your domain name (things like gTLD or ccTLD), the server's IP and absolutely into the content itself. Google Webmaster Tools can help you in associating an internet site with a geographical area whether it's a subdomain or a subdirectory -- you can use this particular feature to get purposes that are geotargeting. Have a great time.
