    Is the a MUST list of meta tags?

    I've seen a variety of meta tags used on different sites. Some are place by WYSIWYG editors and others I ave never even heard of.

    I always add Descrption and Keywords. What other ones should I be using?

    Meta tags can mean anything. The keyword and description tags just caught on. You can create metatags for an internal search engine if you wish. I am going to use one called "searchwords" in my own pages. It will be used to find related articles.

    Title
    Description
    Keywords
    Robots no/index;no/follow - If you don't want a page listed, or just the links followed.

    All the others are hot air really. They may be of some use to 'view the source' addicts, but they mean nothing regarding search engine rankings.

    Then again not all search engines read meta tags (Excite) so don't rely on them. Optimise your content as well.

    Recognize.
