There is a general concensus out there in internet land that Meta Tags either don’t work or of no use anymore. Be that as it may, We, Hosting Impact, do not subscribe to that theory. True, the search engines may not lend as much weight to them as they once did and we have the spammers, once again, to thank for that. Any useful tool that has been designed to assist everyone, has been exploited by the spammers, used, spat out and disgarded like an old toy, until it serves little or no purpose.
With all that aside, Meta tags still have a place within Websites and the correct implementation of Search Engine Optimisation procedures. Meta Tags offer a hint or clue to the search engines of what lies beneath and within the website. This hint is enough to entice the engines to crawl your website and rank it accordingly.
We are not saying that Meta Tags are the be all to end all, however, we do believe that if you use them and use them correctly, they will provide you with a benefit. How much of a benefit, is up for debate and we are not interested in that. We are more interested in developing and implementing sound SEO practices and web design techniques.
In a nutshell, if the content of your website reflects or relates to the hidden meta tags, then it stands to reason that the spider has a valuable point of reference on the content of that page and more importantly, your keywords and or keyword phrases. Keyword Suggestion Tool
