A Meta-What?

Everyone is always talking about some magic formula for getting listed in search engines. There isn't any, but there are a few things you can certainly do to help the situation. One of those things includes meta-tags. There are a variety of meta-tags you can place in your code, but the three most important are:

  • Title
  • Description
  • Keywords

Take a look at your code (hint: right click on your page and choose view source), and look for something like this: (I have removed the "<" so it will show up here)

title: Your web site title here - between 50 and 80 characters including spaces

meta name="Description" content="A concise, descriptive summary of your site - up to 250 characters including spaces"

meta name="Keywords" content="key words and phrases that appear on your page - up to 1024 characters including spaces"

If you change the content of your page you should probably revisit your meta-tags. If you don't have any, contact your webmaster and work together to get the best words working for you.
