HTML Meta Tags

Meta tags are used to supply information for search engines that will not be seen by the web surfer.

HTML - Keyword Meta Tags

Keywords and/or phrases may be placed inside the keyword meta element. You should specify the most popular search terms you believe someone would use to reach your website. A few years back, you could spam this meta tag with any and every keyword possible to gain ranking on search engines. Now, however, repeated words, or words that do not pertain to the content of the site, will not benefit your search engine rankings.

You can use <meta> tag to specify important keywords related to the document and later these keywords are used by the search engines while indexing your webpage for searching purpose.

<head>
<meta name="keyword" content="keyword, key keywords, etc." />
</head>
