    No meta names?


    Any reason for no meta names in start page? When you get spidered there will be no keywords to list your site under.

    At least half of my hits come from google via keywords. Another site uses the following which maybe overkill but here it is. (I'm sure you'll recongise it)

    Code:
    <meta name="description" content="Discussion on topics such as computer security to networking and operating systems. Also general topics and an area for sharing humourous findings.">
    
    <meta name="keywords" content="Security Forums, Security, Forums, computers, PC, Help, UK, Exploits, security-forums.com, Anonymity, Privacy, Spam, ShaolinTiger, Shaolin, Linux, UNIX, Networking, Funny, Humour, Discussion, computing, comp, darknet, DALnet, Hacking, Web, Page, Design, Programming, Firewalls, Firewall, Routers, Gateway, Switch, Hub, Windows, Win2k, Win95, Win98, Exchange 2000, Connectivity, Tele, Telecommunications, Broadband, Modem, IDS, Intrusion Detection, Physical, Movies, Music, Gaming, Jokes, Funny">
    Did you try to get ST's opinion on how did he get his listing everywhere on google? He may have just done keyword or applied directly to google or someting else. Google is how I found it from the U.S.

    I like the format, good luck

    I am going to work on my Meta Tags tomorrow morning, it has not been an immediate priority as it may be another week or 4 before google start spidering the site, but it is important.

    Thanks for reminding me

    I was looking at your meta names for spiders and noticed the one you mentioned in another post on google using "linux forums" but you didn't list that one. Shouldn't that one be listed if its one you would use to find a web forum like this?
