This tool will
analyze a website's meta tags. Although the use
of meta data is certainly in question, analyzing
a competitors “keyword” and “description” meta
values is a good way to find ideas for key terms
and effective copy for your website.
Keywords: This should contain a short
list of keywords and terms related to your site.
Generally they should be separated by a comma,
but some people prefer not to use any sort of
Description: This should be a brief
description of your site and what it offers.
This is sometimes used by search engines as a
website’s “snippet” for search results.
About Meta Tags At one point meta tags
were considered a relatively important factor by
search engines. AltaVista and other older search
engines used them to help determine a site’s
theme as well as relevance to a given term. This
is no longer the case; search engines now rely
on much more advanced techniques to do this.
That said, meta tags still have some life left
in them; they are sometimes used as the snippet
of a site's content in search engine result
pages by Google, and possibly other search
engines. It's also possible they still have a
little influence with some search engines in
determining a site’s content.
