MetaTags & You

Sample
<html>
<head>
<title>Domain Decorator -- MetaTags and You</title>
<!-- Learn how to decorate your domain website with javascript, perl, and simple html -->
<META NAME="DESCRIPTION" HTTP-EQUIV="DESCRIPTION" CONTENT="Learn how to decorate your domain website with javascript, perl, and simple html">
<META NAME="KEYWORDS" HTTP-EQUIV="KEYWORDS" CONTENT="javascript, perl, html, graphics, backgrounds, mp3, games">
</head>

The first line you'll recognize as the standard <html> start of any html page. This is found at the very top of your page and </html> is found at the very bottom. The rest of your page is inbetween.

The second line is the beginning of the head <head> starts the header and </head> indicates the end of the header. Meta Tags are properly placed in the header.

The third line is your title. The title is marked by an <title> at the beginning and </title> at the end. This is the title of your page (hence the name "title"). It will appear in the blue bar at the top of browsers and in search engine listings.

The fourth line is the first of the meta tags recommended for all webpages. This meta tag is the description. As you may guess from the name of the meta tag it is intended to be a description of your webpage. Please note this is expected to be a description of your webpage not necessarily the website as a whole. For sites with many pages this can be rather burdensome. But may well be worth it since a good description here can help your placement in search engines and also help bring your listing in the engines to life.

The fifth line is the other significant meta tag -- keywords. Keywords are used in searchs to find content. In this tag you can help place your page where it belongs by using keywords appropriate to your page. It's not a good idea to base keywords on what you think is popular. It is far better to base your keywords on what will help bring those looking for the content of your page to your page. If you don't think anyone would be interested in the content of your page perhaps you should re-think creating that particular page.
