Default Useful info on meta tags

There is an excellent thread entitled “Key words” going on now in the CIS INETPUB forum. It was started by George, who always seems to hit an interesting nail on the head, both there and here in the DTP Forum!

In it, Kelvyn Sheppard provided a link to “Examine the role of meta tags” on Builder.com. The article seems to my innocent eyes to have a solid perspective on the usefulness (and sometime lack of same) in meta keywords as well as the others. And it also touches on the relationship of meta tags with http-equiv statements.

The article is about 18 months old, so the behavior of major search engines has probably gone through about 18 modifications since then (if not even more!), but author Michael Meadhra points out that the words can also be useful if you provide a site search function.

Meadhra also refers to something called the Dublin Core meta tags, which I had never heard of.

Lots of useful information, in other words.
