    Just learning/anchor text and metta tags.

    Just test my knowledge please.

    Anchor text is what search engines look for in your signature, in a forum?
    where else would they find anchor text?

    Metta tags are in the last part of text, in a link, after the forward slash
    eg www.a company.com/mettatag,

    and search engines would look for that as well

    am i right or not?

    Anchor text is the text that appears in any link.

    Meta tags appear in the header section of a document and tell us something about the document. View the source for this page and search for meta.

    Anchor text is a link that used in the site such as URL.

    Meta tags is appear at the top of HTML files. It placed after tag of <HEAD>
    The tags look like this
    <meta name="keywords" content="" />
    <meta name="description" content="" />
    The search engine will search for keywords that placed in the meta tags. You must identify also the positioning of keywords.

    The search engines don't search for keywords in your meta tags. The search engines try and collect information about all pages on the net (the bots do this bit) and retrieve relevant pages when a user searches. These days the search engines don't look too hard at meta tags to tell them what a page is about. I'd include them for completeness but don't spend too long agonising over what to put in them.
