Meta Tag, Keywords, Page Properties

Two topics discussed on this page.  
1) PAGE PROPERTIES FIELDS: description of the Meta Tags inserted by CSB automatically


1)  PAGE PROPERTIES FIELDS DEFINED BY CSB/TRELLIX
Use fields offered by CSB/Trellix to define your basics of your page and they appear in the HEAD of the page!  CSB has predefined fields you can use.   
either: RIGHT CLICK THE PAGE, PROPERTIES, PAGE
or:   ON TOOLBAR, CHOOSE EDIT, PROPERIES, PAGE

Title: Name of page (look at top of window)

Short Title:  CSB 3 and 4.    (CSB 5 look at this)
empty or filled for different results.
leave this field empty and your page will revert to the id #  (This page would be id90.htm based on the id number at the bottom of the page)
type in a name and it becomes the name of the page.  Don't put in the extension.  It is automatically .htm unless you go to the extension tab and reassign it to something else.
NO SPACES or symbols except underline _ instead of a space when needed, lowercase is preferable

Summary:  This is the synopsis that shows up with a search engine.

Author:  the person that wrote the page/webmaster

Keywords:  Some search engines rely heavily on the key words. Others use the text of the page.   Separate each with a comma

Set as Home Page:  Check this box if it will be your home page (then will automatically called index.htm even if you have something in the short title field)


CSB/Trellix PAGE PROPERTIES BOX

This page is named pageproperties.htm
SOURCE CODE would show:      (With page opened in browser window, choose VIEW, SOURCE from menu to see source)

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<TITLE>Meta Tag insertion to HEAD area </TITLE>
<META name="description" content="Description of page properity fields, inserted Meta Tags">
<META name="keywords" content="page properties, key words, keywords, robot, meta tag">
<META name="author" content="Sam">
<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
var TlxPgNm='pageproperties';
</SCRIPT>
<META http-equiv="GENERATOR" CONTENT="Created with CuteSITE Builder, HTML Exporter 4.0.108">

A note about Keywords:  
The home page should have summary and keywords pertaining to the WHOLE site not the page. Your home page should have a key word for every major topic on your site... Think it through, repeat items if it can be typed in more ways than one.  You can even build in Misspeled versions of the words if you want.

Then on pages that you want the search engine spiders to definitely catch, put a summary and keywords that apply to that page. Be specific to that page, sorta.
Example: I have product pages on a site that use the product name, company name, concrete, etc. But the company does not sell concrete. So why did I list concrete? Because all of the products are used on, in or with concrete! Color is sold. What kind of color? Yes concrete color! So the key words must have concrete!

Though some search engines still rely heavily on the key words the majority now use the text of the page, in other words CONTENT!  If you have the keywords build into the page properties, and you have paragraphs on the page that describe the same thing, that is the best technique for the best results!

Do not use HIDDEN characters (matching your font color to the page) to put extra content or extra keywords on the page.  Google has posted that they would consider BANNING sites like that!

Do not overload the number of keywords on your page  It can backfire on you!  It's best to keep your keywords limited.  Some sites recommend 7, others 10 specific words.  In any case, don't put in 300 keywords like some sites do.  Most of the search engines will not even look at those lists anymore!  That is to help keep the searches to sites that really match your criteria.  For example: Used to be very common that you would search a keyword, have pages of choices, but the top ten led you to an online pharmacy, adult site or something totally unrelated to the topic requested.  They flooded the page with hidden keywords and/or hundreds of keywords in the meta tags.

 
2) More META TAGS can be added to the <HEAD> section if you need them!

Though the basic meta tags are included in the CSB program (as shown above) there are others you can insert too. A few of them are shown.  Only the keywords, summary and the robot statements are recognized as important. The other meta tags shown below are non-standard and may or may not be of assistance to you, your site or the robots.

ROBOT meta tags are instructions for spiders placed on individual pages:

Robot statements: (if they should index the page, follow links or not)
<meta name="robots" content="ALL,FOLLOW">    
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow">
<meta name="robots" content="index, nofollow">
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow">
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">

Robot statement, specific to Google's spider: (you can do them for any known spider name)
<meta NAME="GOOGLEBOT" CONTENT="INDEX, FOLLOW">

Other meta tags (some sites say they are meaningless....up to you if you want to implement)

Copyright statement:
<META NAME="copyright" CONTENT="Samisite.com.  No part of this page can be duplicated without permission.">

Webpage description to help classify the content of the page:
<meta name="Classification" content="Internet, web hosting">

Webpage rating to help classify the content of the page:
<meta name="Rating" content="Safe for Kids">

Using INSERT > HTML allows you to place code into your web pages.  But this code always appears in the <BODY> section of the code, not in the <HEAD> section.


Unfortunately, you can NOT change the type of tag the fields on the CSB page properties box generates.  But, the good news is that you can add to one of the lines to have more meta tags!

IMPORTANT!
THIS METHOD ONLY WORKS FOR THE AUTHOR FIELD AND WILL NOT WORK ON THE OTHER FIELDS SO YOU CAN ONLY INSERT EXTRA META TAGS ON THAT LINE!

1) CONTENT for your Author field.  I typed in Sam
You can leave the author blank if you want.
2) End the Author Meta tag.  Type ">
3) Now type or paste in your complete extra meta tags.  Here are the two I used on this page:
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow">
<META NAME="copyright" CONTENT="Samisite.com.  No part of this page can be duplicated without permission.">
4) After your LAST meta tag, remove the last   ">
from the field!  You can not have that last "> on the code because CSB/Trellix will add it to the code also.
5) Apply, OK   Then publish.


CSB/Trellix PAGE PROPERTIES BOX
The line below is what is typed on my AUTHOR field for this page:
Sam"><meta name="robots" content="index,follow"><META NAME="copyright" CONTENT="Samisite.com.  No part of this page can be duplicated without permission.

SOURCE CODE would show your additional META TAG, just after the AUTHOR field!   

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<TITLE>Meta Tag insertion to HEAD area </TITLE>
<META name="description" content="Description of page properity fields, inserted Meta Tags">
<META name="keywords" content="page properties, key words, keywords, robot, meta tag">
<META name="author" content="Sam"><meta name="robots" content="index,follow"><META NAME="copyright" CONTENT="Samisite.com.  No part of this page can be duplicated without permission.">
<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
var TlxPgNm='pageproperties';

<META http-equiv="GENERATOR" CONTENT="Created with CuteSITE Builder, HTML Exporter 4.0.108">
