Question about META tag

MDW
This is kind of server-side, so I guess it'll go here. *L*

Is there anything to be gained by putting META tags on
multiple pages within my site? Currently, I've got my META
stuff (title, description, keywords) on two pages -
index.asp and home.asp. Ideally, I'd like my visitors to
start at either of those two pages.

Would my site be more apt to appear in a search engine if
I repeated the same collection of META information (or a
subset thereof, more specific to the page it's on) on
other pages within my site?

The meta tags need only go in the pages you WANT to be indexed in the search
engines. In thoe ou DO NOT want indexed, you should ideally place the Pragma
meta tag with the Content as "No-Cache", and the Robots tag with the Content
as "None"

Well I'd rather have someone visit my page than not, and I
won't make the effort to exclude a page. But you've
answered my question. Thanks.

So is the reason so many search engines are cluttered with BS ...
having Meta tags on key pages is more of an etiquette thing ... I know
I spelled etiquetteteet wrong ... lol

I have a question about metaclasses: How would be the best way to "merge" different metaclasses? Or, more precisely, what is the best way to merge metaclass functionality? The idea is basicly the following: One has several (metaclass) modules that implements an interesting feature. Lets say, I have a metaclass L, that adds logging capabilities to all method calls and another one, called P, that creates properties on the fly.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
