Meta tag problem.

P: n/a
Hi All,
I am a newbie in this field. I have designed a website. I had put
keywords using meta tags in the source. I had chosen the keywords
carefully. When I go on google or any other search engines and give a
search for my keywords, my pages don't show up in the list. I am not
sure what the problem is, whether I am doing it the wrong way . Can
anyone suggest a solution?

Google may take a month before your site shows up. How long has it been?

Just re-read your post and saw that you are using "keywords". I thought I
read somewhere that google ignores the keywords meta tag, but not the
description meta tag, though I couldn't find a link. You might try
searching through Google's pages to learn more. Also, take a look at this:

I find it interesting that no-one has
suggested to the OP that search engines
tend to spider a page if there are links to it..

Of course, one thing that might get a few
links to a new site by such sites as
...ww.thebestwebhosting.net/news/group
and ..www.forum4designers.com, and..
...www.talkaboutprogramming.com/group
and others, as well as a widely used news
archive might be to.. (pauses)

Tell me about it! I posted a working page here once - not in its final
location. Google found it. Now I have to leave that page up in its old
location and make all the links point to the main site to take advantage
of its eventual return.

Oh. Shhhhhhhh...

Anyway, just checked and our index page is now on Google - for the first
time since I dumped the frames! Was indexed yesterday.

Party time. I'm buying.
