Some over eager web page authors put many repetitions of the same word on their pages with small-print or invisible colors. This helps to sort their page to the top of a searched for list. "Search engine spamming". Major search engines delete pages when they detect this. Repeat words, just put them into normal sentences. A META tag goes into the HEAD of a document to specify information that does not belong on the BODY part.
Do it like this ...
CONTENT="ingres, openingres, openroad, ingresii"
- META - used to make the document load another page or reload itself. Used in the document HEAD
- Attributes of META
- HTTP.EQUIV="..." - Gives a command the web browser or server. HTTP.EQUIV="Refresh" will cause a new page to load automaticaly
- NAME="..." - used to specify which type of information about the document is in the CONTENT attribute. NAME="Author" means the Author's name or ID is in the CONTENT
- BASE - Indicates the full URL of the current document. This optional tag is used within HEAD
- HREF="..." - the full URL of this document
- ISINDEX - indicates that this document is a gateway script that allows searches
- NEXTID - indicates the "next" document to this one. Obsolete.
- LINK - indicates a LINK from this entire document to another (as opposed to the A tag) which can create multiple links in the document
