    Hi Apool

    Things like the DESCRIPTION and KEYWORDS fields basically help some search engines (e.g. Inktomi but not Google) categorise your site, and can enhance your search engine results.

    If you rely on Google for most of your traffic, these fields probably won't make much difference, but it's good discipline to do them for the other SEs because you never know when someone with a large pile of cash and a preference for obscure search engines might pop by

    Danny Sullivan has an article.

    Although most major engines have stopped using most of them for now, I always use the Title, Keyword & Decription TAGS just for good measure.

    I agree ... most major SE's don't rely on meta tags anymore ... but, many search directories MUST have meta tags.

    So then if meta tags aren't used for SEs what do they use for placement of you URL?
