I've always used comment tags for search engines, that do not read meta's. I place the meta desc and keywords in them directly under the meta's.

Is there any need to do this ? I read a while back, but not here and i am wanting to know if search engines do read html comment tags, which ones ?

Hi caine,

Unfortunatly, I cannot give you a good list of them. I had some various success with straight comments on Fast, AV and Google, for pages with no or little text. Those pages typically showed just a picture in the middle of navigation gizmos and no text.

I have that gut feeling that putting metas in comments is no go.

Keep using them. There is one popular engine still reading comments. Not a huge effect, but a quality reinforcement of your kw's. Just make sure to include them in part of your density calcs.

Brett,

I normally place them under the meta's, as such with the meta contents inside them.

Is their a better way of doing it ?

A more strategic appoarch as such.
