Help On Meta Tags & Search Engines

Sat Nov 04, 2000 10:48 am

Hi there,

Is there anyone who is good enough with HTML who could tell me how to set up meta tags for the search engines such as yahoo or altavista?

Thank you very much

The best way to get on Yahoo is to pay the $199!!

The syntax for the META tags you want (there are two) are:

<META NAME="description" CONTENT="a short description of your site goes here">
<META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="a list of keywords for your site separated by commas goes here">

These go in the <HEAD> section of your page.

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).
