The Meta Tag Myth


The more the better right Wrong. At least when it comes to meta tags. The history of the meta tag started off as a nice tool that web sites could use to show the search engines what the site was about without the words showing up on the actual page. It seemed like a great idea until people started to abuse the meta tag. They would add highly searched for keywords that were unrelated to their site in their meta tags in hopes of attracting additional traffic. The search engines caught on and lowered the importance of meta tags - they figured out that if they put more emphasis on the visible content of a site, people would have a much more difficult time “cheating”. Turns out that they were right.

All About Google


If you read The Search Engine Showdown at www.abalone.ca/resources/searchenginetest.html, you know Google is my favourite search engine. Why Google always offers the most results for any given search they currently have over 8 billion pages indexed, its faster than the Audi Quattro we test drove this morning, and 9 times out of ten, in my experience, all the front page results are relevant to my search. In fact, I usually find what Im looking for within the first few sites listed. I also really respect the fact that two college kids started it kinda like Abalone! and that those two college kids seem not to have forgotten where they came from. If you check out the images at Googles press center http://www.google.com/press/images.html and scroll down to the Everyday Life Inside Google section, youll get a feeling that life at Google is fun.
