"stuff" in the head tag...

by marcelomdsc / July 7, 2007 12:07 PM PDT

Hello, I'm not sure of how should I deal with the head tag of my websites.

Firstly is giving my pages a good title...as somebody advised me too...I went with...
Home Page= studios29.com :: Home Page
tutorials= studios29.com :: Tutorials
is that a good idea? what if I create a third level page?

Secondly, what about the keywords and description meta tag, should they be the same for all pages?
I will go for something like this for my home page

<meta name="description" content="studios29 is a website for web design, here you will find information about us, links to really cool websites, photoshop tutorials, and more infomation about graphics and the web in general." />

<meta name="keywords" content="studios29, web design, design, graphics, tutorials, html, css, web standards, diseno web, diseno, grafocos, tutoriales, uruguay, montevideo, marcelo, montes deoca" />

is that ok, should i use the same in ALL the pages?

thanks a lot, Marcelo.

If you were...

...really specific, you could make each page individualized. If one page had a photoshop tutorial about editing images, you would have keywords like "editing" "images" ... which you would replace those keywords with something more useful on other pages, since you have a limited number of keywords a search engine will look at. As for the title, personally, it doesn't matter whether you include "studio29.com" since the domain already contains that info. Just put it in the keyword, but I would put a different title for each page... to maximize results.

Hope this helps.

what your validation looks like is


Second, since you have this in your meta tags

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

The web crawlers will read anything that you type in html. It will also read anything that you make alt=you description of the item.
