5 Web Design Tips You Can't Live Without - Metatags Make Your Site Search Engine Friendly
(Page 4 of 7 )

Metatags are what search engines use to display your site when a user searches for keywords within a search engine. Usually, web designers include at least three metatags, title, description and keywords.

A great thing about metatags is they are easy to implement, directly within the <head> and </head> tags. Let's take a look at what the three aforementioned metatags look like:

<META NAME="Title" CONTENT="Title here">
<META NAME="Description" CONTENT="Description here">
<META NAME="Keywords" CONTENT="Keywords here">

You can copy and paste the above three lines of code and place them within your HTML source code; simply type in your web site's title, a description (or summary) of your web site, and keywords, usually separated by commas. Then, simply submit your web site to as many search engines as you can get your hands on, and watch your site's hits improve.

I have created a little utility to automatically generate metatag code, including the above three and a few more. Click here.
