I've just found this meta tag in the source of another site:

<META NAME="googlerank" CONTENT="dx2st-domain-name">

domain name is the domain and extension without the www.

I've never seen or heard of this before, anyone know what it is, what it does, and should we be using it.

Get creative with "googlerank" and some popular TLDs. You'll find it.

I have never heard of this one before. Looks like a half remembered best guess at something.

Click this Google [search [google.com]] for it and you'll get a big clue.

This Google [search [google.com]] does slightly better.

Still got me puzzled, what is it meant to do, or what does the site in question think it will do anyway.

Although this is a meta tag, and not an html comment, it still sounds like a worthy addition to this thread:
Html comments - submit your best one!
seen any good ones lately?
