I am checking if the meta tags of my site are correct.
Could anybody here give me some help?

Here is what I am using now:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1" />
<META name=owner value="My Name">
<META name=categories value="My industry">
<META content=My Website Description=Description>
<META content=My Keywords=Keywords>

thanks

Every meta tag hav either a
http-equiv
or a
name
attribute, followed by a
content
attribute. You should always place the values in quotes, and a trailing slash is only required of you are using XHTML rather than HTML. I assume that ISO-8859-1 is the correct charset for your site. Don't forget the most important part of the document
head
which is the
title
element. So you get:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>The title of my page</title>
<meta name="description" content=My Website Description">
<META name="keywords" content=My Keywords">

The following are not only incorrect but entirely unnecessary - just delete them:

<META name=owner value="My Name"> 
<META name=categories value="My industry">

You should also change the Meta Tags to...

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>The title of my page</title>
<meta name="description" content=My Website Description" />
<meta name="keywords" content=My Keywords" />

... and while we are correcting each other: don't forget a quote after content=

So:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>The title of my page</title>
<meta name="description" content="My Website Description" />
<meta name="keywords" content="My Keywords" />
