Meta Tags and Meta Checker

Meta tags are located in the <head> </head> section of a HTML page so Search Engines can quickly realize what your site is all about and if it should be there, before it reads the text portion located in the <body></body> section.

A while back meta tags were the single most important tag used for determining relevance of a page but now search engines employ alternative mechanisms for determining relevancy. Many SEO (Search Engine Optimization) websites say you can skip listing many of the Meta Tags like keywords and description but I still say "better safe than sorry" because you never know what the Search Engines look for. Take the 5 minutes and put them in.

Here are some tags that are useful:
<meta name="description" content="Maximum of 255 characters">
<meta name="copyright" content="Copyright - All Rights Reserved © YEAR AUTHOR NAME">
<meta name="robots" content="All">
<base href="">
<meta name="keywords" content="Maximum number of characters recommend for this Tag is 1000">

Check your Meta Tags or create proper Meta Tags:
