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
