Meta Tags - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

I'm using Publisher 2002 sp2. How do I add title, description and keyword meta tags so they get picked up by search engines? I've tried editing the html with notepad...adding the aforementioned meta tags between the heads. Didn't work. Website wouldn't load. I then tried using the "insert html code fragment", and while it appeared to insert the code correctly, the site is still not getting picked up by any of the search engines. The site is [url]www.gardenology.net[/url]....

    adding in the meta tag info DOES NOT automatically get the site in search
    engines, the web is to big. it can take weeks and even months to get indexed
    by engine robots.

    I recommend against manual edits of 2002 pages!


    I then
    > tried using the "insert html code fragment", and while it
    > appeared to insert the code correctly,

    the insert frag does not allow access to the head section so the tags would
    be incorrectly located on the page.
    this IS NOT the correct way to add meta tags, see your first question.


    the site is still
    > not getting picked up by any of the search engines.

    see your second question.

    step 1- correctly add the desc and keywords.
    step 2- do a clean publish.
    step 3- wait.

    Default meta tags

    I'm using Publisher 2000...have never built a web page before, so type slowly
    for me :-) Seriously, I created the web page, but then heard someone talking
    about 'meta tags' and other great delights to get my web page noticed....

    Thanks!

    A "description" of your site.
    Visit [url]http://www.davidbartosik.com/[/url] - and go to View menu, Source, and look
    at description and keywords for an example.
    You'll find them in the first top lines.

    Sorry, I just can't get it to work. After I enter the link and preview it,
    it doesn't work, then when I look at the link in pub it has all kinds of %20
    stuff. Obviously I'm missing something.

    Could you please show me the proper hyperlink that I could just copy and
    paste for [url]www.libertygrand.com?[/url]

    I apologize for the trouble.

    Thank you so much.

    What are you asking about here?
    Though as far as your reference to "%20", that is what is seen when embedded
    spaces are used in URL's. They don't support spaces and thus should not be
    used in file names at all. i.e. use "aboutus.htm" and not "about us.htm".

    Default Meta Tags

    I have just created the first two pages of my site from my template. On
    creating these I added "keywords" adn "description". On my old Dreamweaver
    package these would appear in code at the head of affairs but on these pages
    they are turning up on lines 160-170. Is it because these have been based on a
    template and have been blocked from these lines?

    It depends on what else is in the markup on the page.

    Can you post a link to one of these pages?

    Default Re: Meta Tags

    You have a ton of extra javascript in the head of the page - your meta tags
    are still within the head, though.

    By the way, that js is mostly due to the pop-up menus you have chosen to
    use. Be aware that there are MUCH better ways to do those, and ways that
    won't get you into as much trouble as those....
