metadata

Frontpage 2003:
When I look up the instructions to add metadata to my site, I get the
following instructions, however, when I get to perperties, there is no
Custom tab.

Add a keywords meta tag to a Web page
1.. Open the Web page that you want to add a keywords meta tag to.
2.. On the File menu, click Properties, and then click the Custom
tab.
3.. Under User variables, click Add.
4.. In the Name box, type keywords.
5.. In the Value box, type the index keywords for your site, using
commas to separate the words.
6.. Click OK twice.


Is there something wrong with my Frontpage, or is there another way to do
this?

Well Andrew, I'm not sure what was going on, but I had opened the web, then
opened the index.htm - amd ot was open on the my screen (late last night).
I just tried again and now it's working. Actually, what I was trying to
add, was already there.

Thank you for the response. Now I need to figure out why the site doesn't
show up anywhere, when I do a search for any of those keywords.

It's not because of the keywords (or lack of them) since the major search
engines ignore them anyhow. It's more likely because of the content on the
pages themselves....

Here is the proper format to copy and paste:

<meta name="keywords" content="digital, photography, charles, peifer,
charles peifer">

Add the above between <head> and </header> in code view. You should have
other meta data to give you a reference. You can change the above text as you
see fit for each page.

Here is some other meta data. Search engines tend not to look through:
<meta name="description" content="Charles Peifer's photo website.">
<META name="author" content="John Doe">
<META name="copyright" content="1997 Acme Corp.">

<meta name="keywords" content="digital, photography, charles, peifer,
charles peifer">

Don't bother unless it helps you feel better. SE's build the *real* keyword
list from the content on the page and ignore this one.
Add the above between <head> and </header> in code view.

That would be said:
You should have
other meta data to give you a reference.
Why?

Search engines tend not to look through:

Tend? Definitely they do not. However, they do use the meta description to
describe the page in the hit list.
