SEO Tips, Meta Keywords, Meta Description

SEO Tips: What are Meta Keywords and Descriptions?

META tags are special HTML Tags allowing search engines to catalog and categorize your Websites pages.  There are 2 types of META tags, the first is the META Keywords tag and the second is META Description tag. 

META Keywords are used by search engines to highlight what the important keywords are for a website or website's page.  Keywords should be listed separated by a comma between words or phrases.  Don't repeat the keywords too many times, otherwise crawlers will mark your site as a potential spammer.

The META Description is what appears on the search results page.  If the description is too long, it'll be cropped off.  Try and keep the META Description under 150 characters (including spaces and dots).
