• Meta Tags
Meta Tags are very important for your Web Site’s visibility. Many search engines read them from your site when you submit it to them .Major Meta tags that you can use:
Meta Title the only resource type that is currently in use is “documenting” This is the only tag that you need to put in for indexing purposes.
Meta Description Depending on the search engine, this will be displayed along with the title of your page in an index. “Content” could be a word, sentence or even paragraph to describe your page. Keep this reasonably short, concise and to the point.
Meta Keywords Choose whatever keywords you think are appropriate, separated by commas.
Keep your site very content rich. The more content you have on your site the more likely someone is to find what they’re looking. Have a lot of pages. Update the site as many times as possible in a day if you have the time. Updating your site does not mean that you copy paste content from other sites. That will only push your rankings further down. Don’t have any duplicate content. At the same time, dont spam multiple content across the same website. A search engine constantly views or reviews a website or at least every few months, it looks for specific characteristics found in the content of website pages.
