I wanted to ask, will it work if I added the meta tag for keywords to get it indexed properly in search engines and how long does it usually take?

Also, I know about the robots.txt thing but as far as I remember it serves only to restrict directories from being indexed.

Since my keywords are a mix of English and Japanese, I was wondering if this
Code: [ Select ]
<meta name="description" content="HIRASAWA SUSUMU Transparent Sky 2032 PROJECT" />
<meta name="keyword" content="平沢進,Susumu Hirasawa,hirasawa susumu,hirazawa,平沢,進,平ら,系夜,P-モデル,Keiyoru,transparent,sky,project,トランスパレントスカイ,2032,プロジェクト,プレゼンテーション,P-MODEL,Mandrake,マンドレイク,Global,Trotters,核P-MODEL,Kaku,平沢感覚" />
  1. <meta name="description" content="HIRASAWA SUSUMU Transparent Sky 2032 PROJECT" />
  2. <meta name="keyword" content="平沢進,Susumu Hirasawa,hirasawa susumu,hirazawa,平沢,進,平ら,系夜,P-モデル,Keiyoru,transparent,sky,project,トランスパレントスカイ,2032,プロジェクト,プレゼンテーション,P-MODEL,Mandrake,マンドレイク,Global,Trotters,核P-MODEL,Kaku,平沢感覚" />

(not completely finished though, I'll be addind changes and re-upload my index.html) would work to get my page indexed.. someday. Also, does it also need a robots.txt to index by meta tags and/or it's done entirely by robots.txt?

Any advice on indexing in search engines greatly appreciated!

Oh, and should there be a space after the comma that separates them or not?

I don't think robots use meta tags anymore... they just look over the contents of the page(s) accessible to the robot and store things/statistics from there.

You mean the meta tags won't work for indexing?

Okay, I'm panicking. How do I get the site indexed by the keywords and with the proper title and description from the meta tags after all?

No, the meta tags are for old old old robots (like... ummm... any ideas)... google and all the major search engines don't use them anymore... basically, the meta tags are for people who want to look at the source and/or for the admin's use...

Either that, or I'm wrong... someone correct me if I'm wrong

No that's right, it's not a bad idea to add them still ... they won't cause any harm as long as you don't spam those words. These days they look for things like headings <h1>-<h7> titles <title> paragraph <p> and other tags, so they actually read what's in there, so let's say you are targeting the keyword "cheese", you would want something like the following:
Code: [ Select ]
<head>
<title>Cheese Shop</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>The production of cheese</h1>
<h3>Inside the cheese factory</h3>
<p>Cheese is produced from milk, and can be produced from lots of types of milk, for example goat's cheese is made from goat's milk</p>
</body>
  1. <head>
  2. <title>Cheese Shop</title>
  3. </head>
  4. <body>
  5. <h1>The production of cheese</h1>
  6. <h3>Inside the cheese factory</h3>
  7. <p>Cheese is produced from milk, and can be produced from lots of types of milk, for example goat's cheese is made from goat's milk</p>
  8. </body>

Something like that will have the word cheese as a keyword ...

Aha, so I guess after I make my other pages that have more text on them, it'll actually catch the keywords I'm after, right? And also, these bots, crawlers or whatever, don't run a site-check only once, right? They do periodically and the site's indexing is updated periodically too, right? Though as far as I know it takes it quite a while..

And just thinking me in this post - if there was a paragraph, <p> in a table, will the bots read it?
