Keywords & Meta Tags

Good morning,

I know that this has been covered a few times but I am not finding the answer I am looking for.

  1. Keywords: are those the hot words in out html text in our sites? Can we add some behind the scenes for more recognition?
  2. I know that there is a meta tag action - what exactly does it do? and with it - do we need to add more meta tag?
  3. what is the best way to add meta tags? ( i realize what google has been saying - but I am covering all my bases)
  4. what other things do you gurus recommend for SEO or now SMO (per a blog chat last night)

  1. Keywords are used by some search-engines (but not by Google anymore) Keywords must match important words in the text of that page.

  2. You do not need an action, just open in page–>Meta tags–> press new–> enter tagname–> enter tagvalue.
    For more info on META tags please study this: Meta element - Wikipedia or this:
    HTML meta tag

  3. Please see 2)

  4. I) Content. II) Content III) More content. IIII) Good pagetitle V) Carefully choosen H1 tag VI) Most relevant words in the beginning of your content.

There are some “canonical” tagnames that you may want to use first.

meta name="keywords"
meta name = "description"

Read up on these first, there are “best practices” that you are well
advised to follow if you want these to be useful to the few remaining
search engines that still care about them. Unlike the keywords,
description IS used by Google, but only if Google can’t parse out a
meaningful intro paragraph from your site’s code.

Thank you Walter.

I will look into these. I am a bit confused.

How does my site look for meta tags and keywords and description?
