I have a website up and it's doing fine. I created it with a WYSIWYG program, but this program has this box where I can write my own meta tags for my pages.....and I did.....but I wrote them while knowing nothing about meta tags.
So today, I decided to mess with my meta tags, and I've done some reading....but I've read different things in different places....and alot of the information kind of contradicted each other.......and so I got completely confused.
What I need is a very basic explanation of what meta tags are, and what I should write in the 'title, description, keyword' area.
I also need to know what I'm supposed to base my title, description, and keywords on.....like I don't even know where to begin writing them.
When I wrote them initially, I just guessed, and I don't know if that has helped or hurt me. Some of my pages show up great in search engines, but other pages....I don't think that I've ever seen them show up. I don't even know anymore.
So could someone please help me? My brain is like mush right now, since I've been plunking away at this all day.
Many thank yous in advance.
