You need to add it to the index.php in your "JOOMLA_ROOT/templates/TEMPLATE_NAME" folder, where JOOMLA_ROOT is the root of the Joomla installation and TEMPLATE_NAME is the name of your current template.

Hope that helps.

Hello Experts,

I need some help, I want to go from wordpress to joomla, I have some really great questions, I have searched on Yahoo Answers and found several great replies, however if you know something about it please tell me:

I know Google is not taking care of the keywords meta for SEO and ranking, however, is Google using this meta for any other thing such as niche determination? Locating out sites within X niche? What other systems, companies, etc. aside of Google use this meta tag?

This is the site I want to go from wordpress to Joomla, let me know your thoughts:
http://www.[spam].org

Do I find this "index.php" through my Cpanel or through the backend of my Joomla? Thanks in advance :)

You can do it through the Joomla admin backend. If you go the template manager (Extensions > Template Manager) and click on the template name (NOT the style, click on the template name in the right hand box).

Then under Template Master Files click on Edit Main Page Template.
Add the line 'anywhere' between the <head> and </head> tags but be careful not to add it between any other open tags, like don't put in in the middle of a PHP code block or inside <style> tags.

Hope this helps.
