I need serious help with meta tags. Here is the story: I changed the whole theme of my website recently. The meta tags were standard and showed the keywords in them. I was getting some traffic from Google so I they must have been working.
Two weeks ago, I changed my site to a totally different subject and am now using a template. This template has a different meta tag system. This is what it says: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" /></head>
I am ASSSUMING that it means that my content and html is now my keywords for my meta tags. Is that right? To be sure, I created my own meta tags and stuck them on each individual page of my site. I made specific keywords for each page and put those tags in the content area.
Now, my question is this: Will this form of meta tagging work? I am still getting searches from my old keywords contained in my old tags. Maybe it is because it has only been two weeks and the changes are not showing up in Google yet???? However, Google does show my new title and description so why are my keywords not working yet?
Please help! My knowledge of this type of thing is pretty limited.
Thank you so much if you can help!!!!!
