> Meta tags help you get into google.
Meta tags have some use, but getting into search engines isn't one of them these days. Some are useful in some ways: meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="..." -- names the encoding meta name="Author" content="...." -- vaguely useful documentation Others, like keywords=, are pretty much universally ignored by search engines. Google *will* list your keywords="...." in a search results page, but only if your page contains no text - that's fairly unlikely unless the page is 100% graphics or Flash.

Agreed. The more complicated it is, the more likely it is to go wrong. All the cleverness can be in the server, not on the webpage -- just look at Google for inspiration. Sunanda.
