hey ozzu people. anyone recognize these meta tags or know what they do to help search engines?

<META NAME="Robots" CONTENT="index,follow">
<META NAME="GOOGLEBOT" CONTENT="INDEX, FOLLOW">

i am wondering if this is a way you can have the title of your index page be something other than index.htm. i don't mean the title meta tag, i mean the real name of the page.
thanks!!

It pretty much just tells the spiders what pages to be indexed and if links on that page should be followed. If your not trying to restrict the spider, than you shouldn't even need it.

The less tags the better, they just add to the size of pages.

All you need are Title, Description and keywords tags.

Google only uses the Title and to a far lower degree the description tag.
