multiple html sections

I'm new at this and would appreciate someone helping me out.

Do spiders for keyword metatags beyond the header section? In my case, depending on the input to an ASP page, I'm pulling different html onto the page. I'm hoping the engines search for an additional <head> on the page, as I have placed keywords in the variable html.

Welcome to the forums ms.

I'm not entirely sure what you are asking ms. Spiders read the entire page just like a browser.

You may not have two head sections on a page. Meta tags have to be in a head section. If your page doesn't validate, then don't expect a spider to treat it nicely.

See [webmasterworld.com...] for info on validating your pages.

Also, ms122, what is in the meta tags is only a minor portion of the total picture. Some search engines use meta tags and some don't.

If you are inquiring whether the search engines look for keywords beyond just the head section of your HTML documents, - yes, the keywords and keyword phrases should appear in your page titles, as well as the page text in the main body portion of your pages.

What you mean by variable html I have no idea. What the spider reads in the page text, as it appears in the HTML, is what gets indexed. The search engines are looking for relevant sites, so the content is of utmost importance.

What is variable HTML?
