Can Somebody Please explain meta tags to me?

"My brain is fried. I have managed to learn a little bit of HTML but now I have an issue with meta tags. From what I understand it is necessary to have meta tags on your website/blog so your site is noticed by search engines. Please correct me if I am wrong and possibly recommend a site I could learn a little bit more about meta tags. Thanks"

meta tags means your title and description that are relative to your website page which helped when google crawl. In this way you easily crawled and indexed in Search engine result page (google, yahoo).

think of it as little programs (like spiders or little robots running around) that all the search engines are sending out. ... they run around and gather info from every single page on the internet... each meta tag tells those little spiders or robots (crawling around) what your page is about - in computer language, not human words. .. .. .. sorry your brain is fried --- take a nap and then drink a small glass of juice!

cheers

Would you try to publish a book without a title? Your metatags will not help your website get to #1 on Google as they once could but they are still required for indexing.

I can't beleive some of the post I've read. meta (tag) descriptions NOT use any more by search engines? All Search Engines search your meta tags, True google doesn't put a lot of waight on them, But it is still needed. It's like saying human beings don't need dna, or oxigen. and their are still quit a few meta search engines out there. Metas tell the search engine how to rank you, What catagory your in and where to place your results. what your content is about based on keywords, title and possition of these words, How many times the word is mentioned. What languge your site is, what global settings, aurther, copywrite, when to come back and grawl your site. IT IS NEEDED - PERIOD. No meta descriptions - NO RANKING - NO LISTING. well maybe somewhere on page 912,456,256

For those newbies, the reason why the metatags are no longer valued by the searchengines for the keyword use, is because so many sites were throwing in thousands of unrelated keywords and terms, and in effect, spamming the searchengines.

Meta tags are just to describe the content.

You can use this for search engine optimization.

Try this:

<title>Your website header what you want to be the main title on Google</title>

AND...

<meta name="description" content="the description of your site you want to show up on Google".

These HTML functions describe you website to Google so it can be displayed on their site.

TITLE: is the main header you see in bold at the top.

DESCRIPTION: is the small writing that describes a site; this is good for using search engine optimization.

I hope you understand better now!

Add these into your site if you want, but change the default to describe your site.

Have fun

Meta tags are old news now and most search engines dot even rate them anymore.

However some do so it is still good to have

Have tags: title, description, keywords,

Do not repete you words more than 2 times in each tag

Hope this helps

It may be true that Google and others are not using METAtags to Rank the Sites , However METAtags are still using them in the results of the search, when you do a search on google, the result shows the title which is clickable, under that is the METAtag if Available, then followed by the address. When You create a METAtag You can allow the searcher to see what you want them to see

I have commented before on this through my other sites; but there is a web mastery e-book out there if anyone wants it. It explains everything in web design, meta tags and marketing as well as tips and tricks. I consider it my web design bible and I have designed over 200 web sites for myself and others. Here is a link to the e-book.

I should add to what has already been said, that meta tags are becoming increasingly useless. The major search engines, most notably google, don't use meta tags when determining ranking of search listings. The search engines that do recognize meta tags set spiders to search through webpages, remembering things such as keywords, site description, frequency to be revisited by the spiders, etc. Incase you need to know what a spider is, it's just an automated program that 'crawls' webpages for archival purposes in search engine listings.

Basicly meta tages help search engines to find you. They use keywords to help your site become more search engine friendly!

By doing a simple search in google for "Meta Tags" you can find loads of helpful sites like http://searchenginewatch.com/showPage.html?page=2167931

Meta tags don't do anything to the content that is presented in the browser window, but they are used by search engines to index information about the web page. Other than the title tag (explained below), information in the head area of your web pages is not seen by those viewing your pages in browsers. Instead, meta information in this area is used to communicate information that a human visitor may not be concerned with. Meta tags, for example, can tell a browser what "character set" to use or whether a web page has self-rated itself in terms of adult content.

For more info visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meta_tag

Good luck

Damian
