    <meta content=”4 days” name=”revisit-after”>

    <meta name=”revisit-after” content=”4 days” />

    John Muller responded with

    Sure you can use them. If you’re curious about Google, here is the meta-tags that we support. I don’t know who supports “revisit-after”, my understanding is none of the search engines do anything with it.

    Here is the tweet

    Key Takeaway

    • As per John’s understanding, there are no search engines that support the revisit-after meta tag. However, if anyone wishes to use it on their website can implement it.
    • John has also shared a link to the document that tells us about the Special tags that Google understands.
    • Further, as per Moz, revisit after meta tag is a command to the robots to return to a page after a specific period. Any major search engine does not follow it.
