What are meta tags?

Meta tags enable you to give certain information about your website. This information is then read by search engines (not directories!), or better by their robots. For example, the text entered through meta tag "description" should be displayed as a description of a page (i.e. a HTML document, not the whole site) in a search engine.

Meta tags can help you to avoid problems with frames, tables, or other difficult elements. Meta tags help you control site descriptions in such search engines that support this feature. You should use meta tags, but remember that they do not guarantee that your website ranks number one, or that it will be displayed ideally.

Meta tags can be created in Hello Engines! using the integrated Metatag Generator.

Use the clipboard or the integrated editor to add the generated meta tags to your HTML files.
