Solved: robot meta tags

Q: Solved: robot meta tags

I'd like to add the robots tag to my site. Where in my home pages html should I place the tag? And should it only be put on the home page? Also one other thought, I have a form on my site and don't want it indexed, should I place no follow in that pages html?
I know that there are difference of opinions as far as as using meta tags, but I figure it can't hurt.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A robots.txt file is a short text file that resides in your home directory. Before search engines spider your site, they look into this file to see which files/file types and/or directories they are not allowed to see.

Hi gang,

I am trying to refine the meta tags for my site. Kinda a stupid question here, but should I have spaces bwteen the words along with the commas?

For example, a section of my meta tags reads like this:


Should it read like this, with spaces, for search engines to read:

philosophy, humanities, discussion, forums, art, music, writing

Also....should my meta name description also contain the same words as are listed in the tags?

Being new to the whole SEO and SEM world, I do a lot of looking around and such. I recently ran across a couple things I wasn't sure about - so here I am asking for help once again.

Has anyone heard of a new meta tag called aesop?

<meta name=aesop content=links>

It's supposed to be a 'pick one of a half dozen catagories' type of meta tag that will be used in the near future by many search engines.

I ran across several sites that mentioned it, and some said that it was going to become a standard throughout the search engine industry. I did look at aesop.com, and it just looks to me like it's another new 'search engine wanna-be' site, but I've also seen it listed other places. I know that their sql database isn't even on line yet, but if there is going to be a future meta tag that means something to the search engine world - I'd like to know ahead of time.

One article I read here:

was one that made me wonder. (yes, bigmoneymadeeasy.com does set off some red flags in my head as far as how valid the info is)

If anyone else has any info, I'd be interested in knowing about it.

Also, the meta tag "key phrases" has been mentioned several times, - anyone with info on this one?

A:New Meta tags

If you want information about HTML, go to www.w3.org

The World Wide Web Consortium are the guys who make sure everyone keeps to the same standards when programming for the net. Therefore, they are a lot more reputable when it comes to querys about HTML than "bigmoneymadeeasy" dot com.

My advice? Stick with good old fashioned keywords and descriptions.

Is there a free or inexpensive program that can rename a whole folder full of MP3 files based on the file's metatags? No matter what the current filename is, the new file name would be in the form of the contributing artist's name, a space, a dash, a space, and the song title.

The program would need to be able to handle ...

1) Two songs that would end up with the exact same file names. (Maybe have an option to add a -2, -3, etc. at the end of the file name.

2) Characters in the song title tag that are not allowed in file names. (Maybe replace them with an underscore)

3) Occasional missing metatags. (Maybe leave filename alone if either tag is missing)

I am using GoDaddy.com's domain forwarding and masking service. When you login to GoDaddy, it let's you enter in meta tags for search engines to see. I have done this, but the tags do not appear on my page, just this:

Well, I can't post it because HTML is on, but you can see what I mean at http://www.fantasyrankings.net

Am I crazy or do the tags have to appear in the "head" tag? I called Godaddy's tech support and the first tech I talked to yesterday admitted that there was a problem and forwarded me to the next tech support level (oh boy) where I had to leave a message on some guy's answering machine.

Last night my site was down around 3:00 with a message saying that they were doing server maintainance. My site was back up today, but I think the only thing they added was the: !-- m --

So I called back today and a new tech guy told me that the meta tags didn't have to appear on my site, that their software caught search engines and gave them the meta tags. Does this sound like it could actually happen? Why not just include the meta tags in the "head" tag where they should be? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

A:GoDaddy's forwarding - META Tags

Why don't you put in the META tags yourself, manually? If the server does automatically optimise your webpages (and yes, they can do this) then there won't be any harm in your own ones being there too.

Meta tags have never been a guaranteed way to gain a top ranking on crawler-based search engines. Today, the most valuable feature they offer the web site owner is the ability to control to some degree how their web pages are described by some search engines. They also offer the ability to prevent pages from being indexed at all. This page explores these and other meta tag-related features in more depth. Go to w3schools.com and find out more about meta tags, they have some detailed and good tutorials.

Hello, I read your previous post about this trojan here:


and downloaded the sdfix.rar, extracted it, then ran it in safe mode. It looked like it worked but one day later, the trojan came back. So then I downloaded right off the norton site unhookexec.inf, turned off windows restore, updated my definitions (I have NIS 2005 by the way), and ran a full system scan. Norton came up with nothing yet I still get a stupid fake popup that brings me to the site that created the trojan to begin with! Every time the trojan executes, norton can't delete it because it's in use, so it says access was denied. It does however, delete the files meta.juan tries to duplicate itself at. The Norton site says that meta.juan is a very low risk but somehow it was able to install a rootkit so deep into my computer that it was able to successfully hide all the registry files and the ie5 folder that its hiding in. I cannot stress how much this thing is bugging me because it periodically crashes my computer and does something to make my restarts fail 60% of the time. It's probably another trojan or virus doing that but norton only detects meta.juan. Please help me. Your my last lifeline before I have to reformat my computer which I really don't want to do.

I have about 500 pieces of music on my computer and I have spent quite some time to organise this collection through adding comments and other items in the MP3 tags using a tag editor, called MP3 tag v2.47b. only a few problems because windows explorer does not want to display all the tags. I can live with this because i use the editor for sorting.

recently I started using MusicBee version 1.4.4418 for setting up play-lists. this program has its own tag editor built in. and when I use this, tags are getting lost. can't see them in the old editor, nor in the explorer, nor in the media player.

half of my tags are gone. oops. very disconcerting

anyone with any idea about how to retrieve them and what programs to use to avoid this problem in future.

would be a great help. thanks

I'm in the process of organizing my MP3 collection, and had some questions on tags.

I have Windows 7, and if I go to Properties and edit the filename of the MP3, it saves fine and looks nice and clean. When I add it to a program like Winamp though, the text of the file that displays on Winamp does not coincide with the new title I gave the filename.

Is that because Winamp is displaying the tag of the file, and not the filename?

So that brings me to my next question, is there a way to edit tags in Windows Explorer?

In a perfect world, I would love to have a program that can automatically replace the tag information with the exact filename that I edited while in Properties, so I don't have to go file by file, is that possible......?

or am I way off in my thoughts here?! Thanks.

I recently re-loaded my entire music library in WMP. Specifically, I cleared out the existing WMP file library and then reloaded all the files because I had shifted file locations on my computer and I was getting broken file links and duplicate listings in the WMP file library. Somehow, this process deleted every single file info tag. To correct this I tried actually reloading the music on the computer using backed up files - no dice.

I then switched over to Real Player. All the tags are present and accounted for. WMP is still not playing ball with me, and I'm not about to waste dozens or hundreds of hours manually re-inputting the file tag info for all my songs.

Does anyone know what might have happened, and how I can reverse it short of updating the info by hand? Real Player is OK but I like that I can minimize WMP to my tool bar.

I run XP pro and many of my user rights are administratively disabled, so my ability to change certain settings may be limited. I also don't have installation privileges so I can't download and run unauthorized programs.

I've Googled this using lots of different search terms and browsed through lots of results, but couldn't find anyone who had a similar problem (how unlucky can you be?).

I bought a new computer and, when I was happily transferring my files from my old laptop to the new desktop, thinking I had finally got rid of my old, slow, bad computer, I realised most of the MP3 files' info was somehow lost when I transferred them from my Windows XP Home to my Windows 7 Home Premium. I tried using two different USB mass storage units, an external HD and a pen-drive - didn't work. I tried zipping the files before transferring them - didn't work. I tried using iTunes to consolidate the songs into new MP3 files, then transfer them - didn't work. No matter what I do, all album covers but one are lost, and about four fifths of the songs have ZERO info - no album name, no year, no track number, nothing, just the file names as song titles. On my old computer, the info shows correctly both on Windows Media Player (the player I use) and on iTunes, and the Properties window is also fine. This is driving me crazy, because I've got a little bit of OCD and I just CAN'T listen to music with wrong information. A weird thing about that problem is that, even though the info is still right in the pen-drive and in the external HD when I open it using my old computer, the same files have no info at all when I view the contents of the USB things on my new one!

Good morning,

Looking for a strategy to produce a drill down capability in either Access 2003 or Excel 2003 that is limited to the standard installation (i.e. no add ons -- such as Smart Tags).

I recommended Microsoft Project, but the project sponsor is not open to this option.

Though the sponsor is still developing the specs, the data will arrive in a microsoft comma-delimited (.csv) format (yes .xml would be better) with at least 4 levels of hierarchy. Not all hierarchies will go that deep, others may go deeper. (i.e. some may be only 2 or three levels, others may go to 5 or "n" levels).

I'm willing to use pivot tables, but I don't believe they will nest.

I'm willing to use Access Forms, but I believe they only go down to one sub-form.

I have used VBA, but it's been awhile.

Any ideas?

Also, my fan is very hot and sounds like a vacuum cleaner (I have tried cleaning it, I think I need a new fan) but could this be affecting anything?

Thanks all

edit: I use latest internet explorer, and sometimes chrome but it is the same on both of the browsers, and besides it happens with spotify which is downloaded?

A:Audio sounds like a robot on everything, please help!!

It does sound like something having to do with your sound card drivers. I would go into the device manager which is in the system tab of the control panel and completely uninstall the sound card and any other related components; reboot; then let windows hopefully re-detect and reinstall the sound card and its associated drivers.If you need more info on anything just ask.

Since my modem has been reset, one of my laptops cannot go anymore to google without having this error message:

404. That's an error.

The requested URL /cgi-bin/cgi?req=twz was not found on this server. That's all we know.

It's bizarre, because I never entered "/cgi-bin/cgi?req=twz" in the adress bar. Just: www.google.ca . I can confirm that this website is working on all other computers in the house.

Am I the only one who has this? How to solve this problem?

Thank you very much!

A:force delete karel j robot

Please don't double post (original thread : http://www.techsupportforum.com/f10/...er-183140.html)

Try to delete the folder in safe mode : repeatedly press the F8 key when the computer starts and choose safe mode in the menu that will appear.

Else give unlocker a try :
