Every website url contains tags like title, description, keywords ...You can get these tags directly on the site but it will take a lot of time.

Today I will guide you how to Extract Title and Meta Tags from Website URL using PHP Code. 

Bootstrap Library

Use the bootstrap library only for the purpose of formatting submit form:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="">


<form action="" method="post" class="form-inline">
<div class="form-group">
<input type="text" name="domain" id="domain" value="<?=$_POST['domain']?>" size="80" class="form-control" placeholder = "Enter domain here ..." required/>
<div class="form-group">
<button class="btn btn-info" type="submit" name="submit"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-search"></i> Extract Tags Now</button>

Self-built functions

function get_meta_tag($html)	{
	$doc = new DOMDocument();
	$nodes = $doc->getElementsByTagName('title');		
		$title = $nodes->item(0)->nodeValue;
		$metas = $doc->getElementsByTagName('meta');
		for ($i = 0; $i < $metas->length; $i++)
			$meta = $metas->item($i);
				$response[$meta->getAttribute('name')] = $meta->getAttribute('content');

		return $response;
function curlGet($url){
	$ch = curl_init();
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPGET, 1 );
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1 );
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION , 1 );
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION , 1 );
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url );
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_REFERER, $ref );
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, 'cookie.txt');
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, FALSE);     
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 2);
	$data = curl_exec($ch);
	return $data;

PHP Source Code

if(isset($_POST['submit'])) {
	$url  = 'http://www.'.trim($_POST['domain']);
	$data = curlGet($url);	
	$metaTags = get_meta_tag($data);

	echo '<h3 class="text-primary" style="margin-top:5px">Title & MetaTags</h3>';
	echo '<table class="table table-hover ">';
	foreach($metaTags as $infoKey=>$infoValue) {
