Not sure where bouts this should go, but I thought this would be a good place.

Our website runs off one main template through dreamweaver.
We have used the "doctitle" editable, so that each page can have its own unique title. However I was wondering if something simillar was available for the meta data? At present, every page has the same keywords and descriptions.

Any help greatly appreciated!

hi jackgordon,

it has been sometime since i used dreamweaver so i am not sure what would be the easiest way to do that. many webmasters do not deal with meta keywords since the big search engines ignore that tag.

the meta description used to be useful since search engines would use that for the snippet to display on the serps. that is not always the case. sometimes search engines may ignore your meta description and take a snippet of your text which contains the search term to use as the site description on the serp.

i dont know a fast shortcut in dreamweaver so i hope you dont have a big site. to add a metatag to your page, open it in the editor and select "insert > html> > head tags > pick the one you want. good luck
