    Google is your friend, but I have to start somewhere getting back my post account from old account.

    Depends on what you mean by custom tags, but whenever you want to add something to a wordpress instalation you should be done using plugins.

    In admin area of your wordpress site it is Plugins > Add new plugin. Typing anything like "Meta Tag Manager" or "Wordpress SEO" for seo meta tags would surely solve your problem.

    If you are looking for something none of these plugins, neither similar ones can not solve. You may add the meta tag manualy to "header.php" in Appearance > Editor > header.php. But this would include the same meta tag to all of the pages on your site.

    Hope this helps, next time try "codex wordpress org" in gougle it would surely help. :)
