The <head> and </head> tags surround other tags that define the meta-information about the current page. This information includes page title (already explained in a previous lesson), a description of the page, important keywords and so on.

In this lesson we will discuss how we can help search engines catagorize our web pages, by adding some meta information about them in their HTML code.

Describing the Content of a web page:

When we search something on a search engine, the results we get contain a link to the web page along with a short description of the page. We can provide the description of our web page as under:

<meta name="description" content="The description of your web page goes here.">

You can add the description text as long as you want. A good description is about 60 to 80 words long.

Declaring the Keywords of a web page:

Search engines catagorise web pages using the keywords that are provides in the meta information of a web page. You can declare the keywords of your web pages as under:

<meta name="keywords" content="keyword 1, keyword 2, keyword 3">

You can add as many keywords you want. Be sure you add only the relevant keywords. 20 to 30 keywords are enough.
