When planning website promotion, one should be aware of these points:
Most search engines simply ignore META tags, coz of their big potential to be misused
Anyway, in META tags try not to repeat the same words many times, as search engines will punish your ranking
Some search engines pay much attention to first 150 words of your main webpage, so u'd want to make them descrbing your site well... Having a left side navigation bar (if you're using TABLEs to layout yer site) should contain key sections of your site
Do not repedeatly submit your URLs to search engines - they'll consider them spam. Leave like month or so between submissions.
Note that you should not expect good rankings in search engines if your site is hosted at one of the FREE webspace providers (e.g. Angelfire, Tripod, Crosswinds, etc).
