However, a few search engines have suggested using meta tags to define the keywords used to index a page and to provide a description for each page. For instance, when AltaVista indexes a page, it places all the words in the Description and Keywords meta tags in the index. When a description of your page is returned, either the first few lines of text are shown, or, when you use the Description meta tag, its contents are shown. Other search engines use other techniques.
The meta tags for this page are
<META NAME="description" CONTENT="HTML Meta Tag examples, Last modified 3-10-97"> <META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="HTML, examples, meta tags">
|AltaVista||Uses Description and Keywords|
|Excite||Indexes the entire visible part of the page and does not use meta tags.|
|Yahoo||Uses user supplied information and does not use meta tags.|
As usual, this command does not work in all browsers. Therefore, you should also provide a link.
