    META TAG questions? same meta better or different meta better for each page


    I just wondering if let say you have ecommerce website, which you sell stuff on the site
    then each site has different product, so
    would it be better to use same meta tag or different meta for each product page

    for instant you sell Noodle this is the meta ( this is just assume)

    Title: Noodle & Instant Noodle & Cheap instant Noodle
    Desc: We offer large selection of instant Noodle
    Key: noodle, instant noodle, germany noodle, italy noddle, indian noodle

    now that is the main page meta, let say we have over 700 products then has different noddles for each page
    so which one better ( assume that i have this product " germany noodle"
    should i use same meta or
    do different one better like

    Title: Germany Noddle & Germany Instant Noodle & Cheap gemany instant noodle
    Desc: We offer large selection of Germany instant Noodle
    Keywod: noodle, instant noodle, germany noodle, italy noddle, indian noodle


    + would it be better if we use product name on the title like what i did or ??

    need help ( how many product name should we use on title and desc, there is any limit , like have to be 2 or 3 )

    Well Your best bet I think has always been make a page for each keyword make a page that gives your viewers all the information they would want about it.

    I avoid coping my metas for the most part but I think you trip redundancy filters with engines if they see the same stuff in the meta tags ie MSN , Yahoo.

    I always stick to around 33 percent in the title tag for the one keyword your targeting and your body around 2-4 percent, and like others have said in the past for google the keywords tag is almost overlooked completely.

    Obviously I am in the same boat but I build a page for each keyword I want to target.

    hope some of this helps

    In my experience you want different meta tags for each page. Since page A has different items from page B let it be known in the metatags.

    When you look at your server logs you will notice your viewers will not all enter from home page. If surfer is looking for green noodles they will search for that page and go directly to your page selling green noodles.

    In my opinion you can keep the meta tags the same for all the pages. As long as
    the content is different search engines will pick up the inner text. I think the tags are
    not much important for google, msn and yahoo. if you check the search results for so many
    terms it is easy to see that they are not necessarily related to the meta tags. google and yahoo
    picks the content of the page, and displays the results from the content rather than the
    meta tags.

    Maybe so but will they " RANK " those pages. Its just not a good idea to make redundant meta tags. I think it will dilute your websites effectiveness on your search engine positions.

    I strongly suggest building your pages on one keyword phrase with the appropriate meta tags and descriptions as not to mislead your potential visitors. Its just a way of completing those pages IMO.

    Why make your site appear spammy by reproducing a meta tag over and over again when all you are targetting is a variation of one term.

    Also in my experience with google, they only rank the Base keyword first. I am still not out of the sandbox for my entire term on one phrase " keyword keyword keyword " but google did rank me no.7 for one of the 3 first.

    If your targeting google I would suggest you make every page's meta unique to the specific phrase your targeting if not only just for completioness.... Is that a word?

    I would think it would be your customers that would want indiviualized title meta tags. What I would do is make the first words in the meta tag reflective of each indivdual customer


    EG title= XYZ's Company Name then Standard Meta-tag

    Opps I was going to add that I forgot lol ,, IMHO the first words of your description tag should have your keywords in it . Seems that google reflects more importance on the first words in your description tag. I may be wrong but its always a good idea to play safe.

    This is not much recommended......by most.

    Even else...your COMPANY NAME is your Brand name...better to avoid it in the beginning itself,....

    He means every page should have it's own uniques title and description. I am also a firm believer in UNIQUE titles and descriptions. This is an old rule of thumb:

    Write a killer description>>>>and a unique title.
