[Pro] Meta tags, keywords

Hi; I’m working in Freeway 5 pro, still pretty new. I’m trying to apply meta tags & keywords, but don’t understand the instructions in the reference manual. For “Defining a new meta tag for a page” it says:
(choose PAGE… meta tags)…
“3.Type the text you wish to appear for NAME or HTTP-EQUIV as appropriate in the Name text field.
4.Type the text you wish to appear for CONTENT in the Value text field.”

I don’t know what text is appropriate for the Name text field, or for ‘Content,’ & I don’t want to do it wrong and make search engines dislike the site. Is Meta Tag content different from Keywords content? How many meta tags is too many, how much text is appropriate, is this still the best way to make the site easy and accessible to search engines?
Thanks, Cecily
(I also don’t understand the making site maps section, but that may be another story.)

Hi Cecily,
Try the Meta Plus Action; http://actionsforge.com/projects/view/124-meta-plus
Simply apply it to a page (or a master page) and use the controls in the Actions palette to set the most common meta data (keywords, description, robots etc).
This is nothing that you can’t do manually with Freeway but the Action provides a template that you can use to add your own meta data.
Regards,
Tim.
