TAG, You're it! Using Keywords in Your Tags By: Janet L. Hall
Did you know that in order to get your web page a top ranking in some of search engines that you MUST use your keywords in certain TAGS?
The basic language in which most web pages are written is HTML (HyperText Markup Language). In order to turn your regular text into HTML you must use TAGS. Most TAGS use a start (beginning) and end (closing) TAG.
To indicate a document is written in HTML you must start document with TAG: (this is placed at very top of your document) and then to end your document you place TAG: at very bottom of your document.
TIP: All start TAG elements are surrounded or enclosed by angle brackets: < > and all end TAG elements are surrounded by angle brackets with a forward slash inside: >
BIG TIP: NOT ALL TAGS need ending TAG. (more on this later).
There are many TAGS you need to include in your HEAD TAG (which this article will be addressing), and in your web page, in which you should include your keywords. This can help (but doesnít guarantee) better ratings with some search engines.
Search engines generally consider anything near top of your document or within HEAD TAG with more relevance, so it's important to include proper TAGS and your keywords within those TAGS.
NOTE: META TAGS are HTML TAGS that will give search engines information about your web page and should be included in HEAD TAG also. They DO NOT have a start and end TAG but are enclosed with angle brackets.
So after tag, place your start HEAD TAG:
TAGS you MUST catch:
(Please note that I am presenting MY keywords in lower case, and TAGS in upper case in examples)
1. disorganized? organizing help, clutter tips, organizing tools
These are TAGS you use for title of your page. The title tag is very important so please don't use Home Page for your title. Some web page software will generate home page or new page for your title, YOU MUST CHANGE THIS.
On Internet, your title appears in blur bar across top of monitor screen.
Make sure you use your keywords in your title to help ensure a * higher * score with some of search engines. Many search engines will display your title and your description in search results when people are searching for you.
According to a report I received from WordSpot.com, * The #1 biggest mistake that web page designers make is leaving out keywords from area of a web page. *
masterpromotion.com suggests, *The optimum length for a title is between six and eight words. Do not repeat keywords more than once. * Another article I read suggests a title length of 60 characters.
2.Your next important TAG is your description TAG:
life you've been dreaming of, clutter free, get an overhall">
This TAG can be thought of as a mini ad for your web site. You should also place your keywords here. The suggested length for your description is between 10 and 25 words or 150 characters.
3.Next is your keyword TAG in which you need to enter YOUR relevant keywords YOU have selected for that page.
