0 keywords for search engines

Some search engines on the WWW will use the name and content attributes of the meta tag to index your pages.

this meta element defines a description of your page:

<meta name="description" content="Free Web info on HTML, CSS, XML and XHTML">

this meta element defines keywords for your page:

<meta name="keywords" content="HTML, DHTML, CSS, XML, XHTML, JavaScript, VBScript">

The intention of the name and content attributes is to describe the content of a page. However, since too many webmasters have used meta tags for spamming, like repeating keywords to give pages a higher ranking, some search engines have stopped using them entirely.
