Updating the Meta title and keywords will definitely help the search engines find your website - especially if the name of your company website is unique... BUT this alone will not always get you indexed.

You can try submitting your website directly to Google here. As well as submit your site to Bing/Yahoo here.

It also helps if you get a link (or multiple links and citations) that direct traffic and users to your website. Additionally - whenever possible you should try to get your targeted keywords mentioned in the link. Using your example of "abccbaabc" as a keyword, you would want to have a link pointing to your site that looks like this...

<a href="http://yourwebsite.com">abccbaabc</a>

follow the instructions ...

Instructions? What instructions? The only thing that Google talks about is PageRank and how it can be helpful to manipulate it.

follow the instructions ...

Really? Well I don't see any mention of how to optimze web page components or images or logical naming or the value of a powerful internal linking structure or ... These things are unimportant?

follow the instructions
each google page links to others an explanatory list and then detailed instrcuctions on how google indexes and see the siteYes Fred, you get paid for SEO
and you don't want anyone to know they can optimize their site themselves,
that ethical question,
where does self interest intersect with public discussion.

Ethical SEO refers to performing search engine optimisation while adhering to the search engine guidelines explicitly. This is the safest way to go. Ethical SEO implies focusing a search engine optimization strategy exclusively on crafting the optimizable web page/site components, particularly the content.

Judgement of character and your personal opinions about others is not one of your better strength. You should leave your detective skills at the door when you come in here because they suck real bad. You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about when you criticize me. I am going to make a fool out of you for that.

Look through my previous posts and you'll find nothing other than sound SEO advice, startegies, insights ... tons of it. My motives for assisting junior SEOs is alturistic. I get no money for helping other search engine optimizers find effective long term sustainable marketing plans. I rarely work as a search engine optimizer these days. I have other creative outlets. I've been performing SEO since Yahoo came on the picture and even before that (1994) and have seen alot over the years. I do at least two projects a year and often keep clients for ten years or more, so if I have four jobs on the go, that keeps me hopping pretty good. When I started in search engine optimisation, I practiced only black-hat SEO; everybody did back then. Shoot, we had 40 major search engines to contend with. That was SEO back then almostbob, but things have changed a bit over the years. Many Internet marketers are still pointed in the wrong direction; because of common search engine caused confusion (which is clearing up slowly).

In life, you probably give advice. I betcha' everyone around you shivers when you tell them what to do because heaven forbid someone may have another perspective on the matter. Imagine if that other person was in fact much more versed in the element than you. You hate that eh. Well, too bad almostbob. This is a public forum and as far as I can remember, I have the right to free speech in Canada. I can not only base my response on my experience but also from my skills at forum responding. I get my message across intelligently. I don't throw out responses just to gain a couple of links or to hear myself speak or because I have no life (well maybe that a bit)... My links are intended to provide useful additional resources. Everything I do is to stear the Green-hat SEO in the right direction, away from the traps of the trendy SEO chaos.

Have a look around Daniweb Bob. Everybody and their cousins is here for something or another. Sure, I may come here to teach and to preach but I come here to learn too. Some of us come here for reasons you may never be able to understand. The world is a small place here.

Anyway, have a nice day almostbob, you can go back to reading your Google 101 now and good luck in the SERPs (that's an acronym for search engine results pages).

Indeed, google doesnt really care about META any more, due to widespread abuse. It uses its own content search algorithms instead to tag your page. It also doesnt care too much about submission, if anyone links to you, its spider will find you eventually.

Google cares very much about Meta tags. Meta tags are search engine tags. Some Meta tags are obsolete but others still serve a purpose; not just for Google, but for Bing and Yahoo as well.

The Meta Keywords tag is still used, as an indicator, as to what the webmaster feels are the important keywords in the document. Whether the content of the document supports that claim is another thing. Should the search engine dismiss a suggested keyword list, it may still highly rank the page based on the off-site factors alone (making it appear as if it is using the Meta Keyword. Google considers it. It may choose to ignore it but like every other line of code, reviews it carefully.

The Meta Description tag is very much still considered by Google. It may even choose to use it in describing the link in the results pages; then again, it may not. Usually this depends on whether the content of the webpage supports the suggested description.

As far as I know meta tags do not hold much importance. Matt Cutts or someone from google said recently that meta keywords are useless for google search. But however google does lists the meta descriptions in their search results. Am I Right?

I will say u need two sitemaps.

One is for humans, the other is for spiders (for now mainly Googlebot but it is reasonable to expect that other crawlers will join the club shortly).

In that relation it is necessary to clarify that having two sitemaps is not regarded as duplicate content.

In 'Introduction to Sitemaps', Google explicitly states that using a sitemap will never lead to penalty for your site.
