Creating meta tags

Adding information to META tags helps search engines find and index your page.  A META tag supplies information about the page, such as the author, a publishing date, or a set of keywords that identify the page, but does not affect its appearance.

Keywords are the most important meta tags to add. You can add keywords to any pages in your site to make them more accessible to search engines.

  1. On the File menu, click Properties, and then click the Custom tab.
  2. Under User Variables, click Add.
  3. In the Name box, type keywords.
  4. In the Value box, type the index keywords for your site, using commas to separate words.
  5. Click OK twice.
