    Meta tag question


    Hi all!
    You can yell at me if I'm putting this in the wrong spot
    I have a quick, and probably stupid question..
    When doing meta tags.. do you put them on each page? Or just on the main page? and if you do put them on each page, can you change them for each page?

    Thanks for any feedback

    First of all dont go losing any sleep on correct useage of meta tags. They coun tfor veryx little in todays search algorithms.

    But to answer your question, you should take the time to create different meta tags for each and every page you have. Each page on your website is possible entry point into your site so therefore care and attention should be given to each page on your site.

    Do not simply use the same meta tags you use for your home page on all your sub pages aslthough that is the easiest thing to do . Look at a particular pages content in a browser and use what you see as a basis for your meta tags. Yes its work, but for those few search engines that make use of meta tags it is worth it. Pay particular attention to the description meta tag btw. as of all the meta tags that is the most important.

    Again, dont worry too much about it. and if you havent got the time jsut repeat the keywords you have on your main page. It isnt going to make a big deal of difference.

    Thanks so much for clarifying that for me I just finished redoing my whole website, and its 96 pages, with plans of adding more, so I wanted to see what others recommended on the meta tag thing I really appreciate it!
