I was thinking of creating a php include for the <meta> tags for a site. Is this possible?


just an idea.. if you ran the content of the page through a semantic extractor such as open calais or yahoo term extraction, then that'd be 100%(ish) accurate meta keywords without you worrying.

but as everybody else said - yes

That's an interesting idea. But the point of meta tags (excluding Google because as i understand it, they don't consider them) is that the title of the page and meta tags description and keywords are supposed to be in "harmony" with the content of the page they are on.

While one could create a "semantic extractor" that would create the "perfect" meta keywords and description for any piece of text, the "perfect" arrangement might not be what you actually want.

Ahhhhh... I know exactly what you mean here, but the point is they always will be perfect for the content on the page, so if you review and they are not what you want, then it means your content needs rewritten / optimized to include the terms you want.

No point trying to cheat a system which is ultimately just going to run it through a similar system to work out what the content is about!

IMO, nothing replaces deliberate thought as to what you ultimately want SE's to index. If nothing else, it seems to work for me. While I get

exactly, the phrase content is king leads though, and the content on the page together with its structure is probably the key factor - always worth listening to the SE's though, their job is to bring people to the content they want, so make content people want and the SE's will drive traffic to it; especially if you write pages that are not context aware - each page should make complete sense as an entity by itself, not only when you've read the pages previous.

good reports from Google, Yahoo, AllTheWeb and AltaVista, I never seem to get my sites listed with MSN.



MSN is a tricky one, assuming you're using their webmaster tools and have uploaded the validation files etc?

cue many opinions..
