The <meta name="keywords"> tag is not inside the <head> tag section

WEB1029 - The <meta name="keywords"> tag is not inside the <head> tag section

Expression Studio 4.0

The <meta name="keywords"> tag should be a child of the <head> tag.

Explanation

Each page should have a unique set of keywords that describe the contents of the page. Keywords should be contained inside a single <meta name="keywords"> tag inside the <head> tag section.

Details

Search engines use the <meta name="keywords"> tag to identify keywords relevant to the contents of a page. Search engines may ignore the <meta name="keywords"> tag if it is not inside the <head> tag.

Example

The following example shows correctly formatted <meta name="description"> and <meta name="keywords"> tags; "Proseware," "Proseware applications," "Proseware utilities," "Proseware tools," and "Proseware server tools" are treated as distinct terms.

<head>
    <title>Contact Proseware, Inc.</title>
    <meta name="description" content="Contact information for Proseware, Inc., including addresses, phone numbers, and email"/>
    <meta name="keywords" content="Proseware,Proseware applications,Proseware utilities,Proseware tools,Proseware server tools"/>
</head>
