Submitting your site to SubmitNet

What are Meta Tags

Meta Tags are specific tags that you connect with chosen words on your site. Search engines use meta tags to gather information about your site. The most important meta tags for search engine indexing are the title, description, and keywords.

Causes of submission failures

Periodically site submissions fail. There are various reasons for this:

  • Search engines are constantly changing and evolving
  • Submissions systems sometimes go down, or links are changed
  • Some engines only allow submissions from certain types of websites, such as industry-specific sites; these engines will always reject sites of other types, resulting in failures on your submission report

Why is the Meta Tag Analysis tool not picking up my Meta Tags

The Meta Tag Analysis tool checks the HEAD section of the HTML code of your website. Check to make sure that the Meta Tags have not been incorrectly placed in the BODY of the HTML code. HTML formatting errors will also cause problems.

For an example of of properly coded Meta Tags, run the Meta Tag Generator tool.

I made changes to my Meta Tags, but the Meta Tag Analysis tool is not picking them up.

Check to make sure that there isn't a duplicate set of Meta Tags in your HEAD section. The engine spiders won't know which to use and your listing will suffer because of it.

Check to make sure that you added or changed the Meta Tags on the URL page you ran through the tool. Double-check to make sure the page you are editing and and the page you are processing is the same.
