metatags

Guest

I know how to do metatags but this site keeps telling me to add them to the
home page. Does that mean it does not do any good to add metatags to the rest
of the pages. My site is too large too add them to the home page only as
there is not enough room for all the product names.

Hi,
You should have a seperate description for each page, don't just try and
stick all your products in one tag on the home page. So you might have
something like this
Home page
<meta name="description" content="We offer a full range of widgets at
unbeatable prices">
Product Pages
<meta name="description" content="Our blue widget offers market leading
performance at a very competitive price">
<meta name="description" content="Our red widget offers unrivalled
performance at a low price">
etc
If your site is too big to do all these manually it may be time to consider
some form of database solution

And the unspoken part - don't worry about the meta keywords. They may help
*you*, but they do nothing for the Search Engines. 8)

Dear Jon Spivey,

I am a newby to meta tags and descriptions. I have searched out good key
words and am ready to do what it take next, could you direct me to help on
the subject?

Thank you,

Forget keywords as they are not used by search engines (nor should they be,
since you can say anything you want to in them).

Just put a good page-specific description on each page and make sure that
the contents of each page state clearly what that page is about, and you'll
be on your way....

(how was my Spivey imitation?)

Dear John Spivey,

Since I found this community a couple of weeks ago I have been studying
tutorials and have cut, copied & pasted the required tags into HTML right
after other tags and before the <body> and the HTML shows in the page view.

Another strange thing is that the </head> is at the bottom of the HTML
page view instead of after meta tags and before <body>. Should I move
</head> up to the end of the meta tags? I also read that all meta tags should
be in lowercase is this true?

I just found out what "value" means and that should help some.

Any suggestions?

Thank You,

Art O’Shea

This indicates you have cut or copied all of the information correctly, and
it's missing some tags.

The </head> must be prior to the body tag. This *might* also be the reason
your meta tags are showing in html view.

Please respond to the replies you have already gotten rather than just

Dear Tom (Pepper) Willett,

Thank you for your input. I am getting excited about doing this right
and want to expiriment with it until I get it right.

One more question; how do I code hyperlinks that our site goes to? I
know I will have to do this on a page by page process. Could you direct me
to some code for that?

May God richly bless and keep you and yours.

Sincerely,
Art O'Shea

Dear Murray,

I'm sorry about that, I replied to my own post, then realized it and
posted it to someone else. Truly am sorry about my mistake, I'm still a
newby and have a lot to learn.

By the way, do you know of any chat room, forum or community where
webmasters help each other with their sites?
