Why you should use metatags ?

Let's be honest: Metatags are not the "ultimate solution" to get ranked high into the search engines overnight.

There are other methodes to get to the top of the list. By the number of links on your site, the content of your site and how your website is constructed all play a part. Also the age of your website or domain is important.

That being said: Metatags are free and they help !


Search engines like Google, Yahoo and AltaVista show Metatags in their search results. You will have a direct influence on your presentation. And by doing so you will manipulate the click-behavior of your soon te be customer. Take a look at our example:


zoekmachines nemen metatags over in de vermelding

It is like A B C !  You perform a search task by filling out:

  • (A) certain keywords.  The results you will get is
  • (B) the title tag and
  • (C) the small text item, the description tag.
So why don't you give it a try and use metatags!

Some people pretend that the meta description and the meta keywords don't do anything to your ranking. They miss out on several points. Not only does Google shows your description tag but by adding a better and more relevant text, more people will click on the link and that provides you with a better CTR (click through rate). And this CTR has a huge influence on your ranking!

A relevant and interesting text will increase the number of clicks to your website.
