It is an identifying tag for HTML or XML documents that can be viewed in HTML or XML source. The tag allows information such as keywords that identify content, the author's name and other descriptive details.
3. What can Meta Tags do for me?
Many engines rely on meta tags to index and categorize your web pages.
You should make sure that all important entry pages to your web site have at least the KEYWORDS and a DESCRIPTION META tags included in the Header section of the HTML code. This should be done BEFORE a submission.
Without META tags, some engines may not index your web site correctly, or downgrade your ranking.
4. Some Hints on the usage of Meta Tags.
The following are some simple rules to help improve your page ranking using META tags. This is a general guideline only, as all engines have their own specific rules for determining page relevancy.
Always include the most relevant keywords first. The relative position of keywords can influence ranking on some engines.
Do not repeat keywords in your meta tags eg: software,software,software,software
Do not try to include every keyword in the dictionary. The more keywords you have, the more you can diluted the perceived relevancy, which may result in downgrading your engine ranking on some engines.
Some engines do not use META tags, so try and have the important keywords also appear elsewhere in the visible text portion of your page.
5. I need a form that allows surfers to my site to fill up a feedback form which is forwarded to my email box upon submission.
Please unzip the 2 files below, formmail.asp and form.htm. Paste the script from formmail.asp. onto your preferred page (e.g. enquiry page) and make sure you save the file as the same name and on the same (www) directory as form.htm.
Copy the below script and paste it on the page where you wish to display the counter. Save the file as index.asp. Ensure that hits.txt file is in the same directory.
Set FileObject = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dir = Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME")
Dir = StrReverse(Dir)
Dir = Mid(Dir, InStr(1, Dir, "/"))
Dir = StrReverse(Dir)
HitsFile = Server.MapPath(Dir) & "\hits.txt"
On Error Resume Next
Set InStream= FileObject.OpenTextFile (HitsFile, 1, false )
OldHits = Trim(InStream.ReadLine)
NewHits = OldHits + 1
Set OutStream= FileObject.CreateTextFile (HitsFile, True)
i = 1
For i = i to L
num = Mid(NewHits,i,1)
Display = Display & num
