OK, I'm a noobie, correct me if I'm wrong... here we go:

Pretend you have a piece of paper with some text on it.

<title>...</title> is the main title of the page and is standing on top of the page. It should be something tight, which draws attention really quickly and makes a user see what's after, below the title.

<meta name="description" content="......." /> is just like the description of the whole text that is written on the page. It should be one sentence that clearly DESCRIBES the content of the page.

below that is the whole content (<body>....</body>).

<title> should be shorter that meta description.

meta keywords is useless these days.

Am I right about these things, or did I get something wrong?

Thanks in advance,

c.

Hi,
Absolutly your right meta Title and description is the main for any site
and remember title should not exceed 64 character length google always displays 64 characters in the display results.

this may help

<title> should contain your chosen primary keyword/s for that page ONCE

eg lets choose the keyword "WIDGET"

<title> Widget character counters at great prices

<description> should contain your chosen primary keyword/s for that page ONCE

<description> Widget character counters are a very ingenious way of counting the number of characters in search result snippet.

<keywords> should contain your chosen primary keyword/s for that page ONCE

<keywords> widget, widget character counter, character counter, counter

Tanx for replies. I eliminated meta keywords from my pages, as I heard G pretty much ignores them these days. Correct or not?

Anything else I should pay attention to?

I would say google do not place much weight, if any, on the <keyword> tag and prefer to use the description or a snippet from the the body text.

I would still use the <keyword> tag as other search engines do consider it in their algos.

ok ... wanted to ask another thing....

I have photos gallery pages... Lets say "Widgets gallery" where all the thumbs of widgets are.

Now, when you click on a thumb, you go to a new page where you can see a photo of that widget in full size.

So for every widget photo page, I have something like this:

<title>Widget photo 1 out of 20</title>

<description> Photo 1 of widget in California. Widget gallery with pctirues."

Of course, if I have 20 pages, on each one I put numbers for the widget on the current page. ("Widget photo x out of y")

Those are all unique <title> and <description> tags. Is that fine way of doing things?
