Meta Tags

Post by kewadin » Mon Jun 28, 2010 7:58 pm

Hello, im definitely new to the Zend Frameworks...

So at the moment im trying to setup Meta Tags on the site.

This is what my site has now: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
So, of course im wanting to update that and get some nice keywords in there.

I tried: $this->headMeta()->appendName('keywords', 'framework, PHP, productivity'); in the headmeta.php and it did nothing.

At the moment i cannot find where the current meta is set up at. I've done searches through the files looking for it. Just can't seem to find it. I thought it was in the abstract files, but nothing.

Any ideas on how i can get something going? Just need a point in the right direction. Google searches don't come up with alot of info on this. So i turned to here.

Thanks for any response.

To add a description and keywords.. You would want to do it with another 2 meta tags:

"<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />"

That's just a content type and has nothing to do with your description. Here's what you do.. Below that add this:

<meta name="keywords" content="whatever, whoever, something else, other stuff">
<meta name="description" content="My site is the greatest site in the world">

This should be in the header file, so it shows on every page.

I have not used Zend (yet) so I can't tell you if there is already a meta system, but from the sounds of it there isn't, and the process mentioned above is the normal process most sites do.

I always hear meta tags are important for seo of a website. Are meta tags just descriptors or something more for google to spider as identifying parameters?

Meta tags is several keywords that related to a web page. This is an important factor in SEO to tell search engine about the topic of content that contained in the web page.

Meta tags are the code that you will need to put in the header of the template right?

I'm just new to the forum, but I have just been using meta tags the same way you would for html... is this right or wrong??

eg <meta name="keywords" content="keyword, keyword2, keyword3" />
