Meta Tags: Controlling how your Web page is indexed

In the absence of any other information, most search engines will index all words in your document (except for comments), and will use the first few words of the document as a short abstract. It is however possible for you to control how your page is indexed by using META tags to specify both additional keywords to index, and a short description. Let's suppose your page contains:

<META name="description" content="We specialize in grooming pink poodles.">

<META name="keywords" content="pet grooming, Palo Alto, dog">

The search engines will then do two things:
  • They will index both fields as words, so a search on either poodles or dog will match.
  • They will return the description with the URL. In other words, instead of showing the first couple of lines of the page, a match will look like the following:

Pink Poodles Inc
We specialize in grooming pink poodles. - size 3k - 29 Feb 96

AltaVista will index the description and keywords up to a limit of 1,024 characters.

META tags are placed between the <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags at the top of your web page. Depending on your HTML editor you may need to use the 'edit source code' feature to put them in.
