However, you can use the meta tag to specify additional keywords to index, and a short description of your web site. Let's suppose your page contains:
<meta name =" description" content =" Our corporation sells and repairs all kinds of saddles.">AltaVista will then do two things:
<meta name =" keywords" content =" saddles, riding, English, corporation, tooled, antique ">
Saddles, Inc.AltaVista will index the description and keywords up about to 3 lines of text.
We sell and repair all kinds of saddles.

Famous Female Scientists
The body of your HTML page appears here.
<meta name ="keywords" content =" ">
<meta name ="author" content =" ">
<meta name ="generator" content =" ">
<meta name ="copyright" content =" ">
<meta name ="robots" content =" ">
If the content of your web site is for a selected audience, you probably do not want a search robot to find and index your site. In this case, add noindex after content="
If you do not want a robot to follow your links, then add nofollow after content ="
If you want to use both attributes, separate them by commas.
Just How Powerful Are These Meta Tags????
