    OK people, the meta tag in a page is used by a search engine to allow it to accurately list your site in their index. So with this i have a topice of the german uboat menace, and this is what i have put so far in the meta tag

    <meta http-equiv="German, uboat, menace, Ww11, nazi, " content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

    So first things first, have i got it in the right format in between the commas etc, or is there a different way of doing this. I know i need to add more wording to it etc, that can be done later. As im pretty new to this dreamweaver stuff i just want to check im on the right lines berfore i start diving in.

    Thanks

    Hi

    I'm not sure if the method you have used would work or not, but a site I built, I used:

    Code:
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <meta name="keywords" content="word1, word2, word3, word4, word5, word6" />
    
    That said, the use of meta keywords in search rankings is in decline, as described in this article.

    Hope this helps

    Would this page help you? I'm no web designer, but I've always found meta-tag generators useful :)
