Earlier the classification tag has prominence, but now SE's never look for it.

The theory is that it will tell the search engines what category your site falls into. They don't need to use it because their algorithms already do that.

A very few search engines (i.e. - Netscape) use this tag to determine how to classify your web page. For example, a classification of "Shopping" would place your site in a category of "Shopping".

Attributes:
<meta name="Classification" content="text">

Text is the desired classification.

Example:
<meta name="classification" content="Internet">

This classifies the content of this site as being about the internet.

The META "Classification" tag is outdated - I personally see no effective reason to include it within your web pages.

Hope this helps.
