The Metatag Generator Wizard helps to create meta tags. Meta tags are necessary, because many search engines index the pages of websites by means of the keywords you enter via meta tags. Using the Metatag Generator Wizard you can either generate new meta tags or import meta tags from existing HTML files. You can also insert the created meta tags directly into your HTML documents. To open the wizard select Metatag from the Wizards section. Now follow the wizard's steps by clicking Next.
Select the source of your meta data. Enter the data manually, i.e. you fill in each of the fields in the following step yourself, or you import data from an existing HTML file. You can also import data from a current Hello Engines! project or from an online URL. Then click Next to go to the Meta Data page.
On this page the imported meta data is displayed. You can also fill in the fields manually:
Author / Publisher: Enter the name of the responsible person. Companies may also enter the company name.
Copyright: Enter the name of the holder of the copyright.
Topic: Enter the topic of your website.
Keywords: Enter the keywords, divided by comma, directly into the field. Make sure you choose keywords that are relevant to the individual page.
Description: Enter a description of the page. Avoid repetitions, superlatives and capital letters.
Page type: From the drop down list, choose a category that best represents your website.
Audience: From the drop down list, choose the user group you are aiming to address through your website.
Define the way the robots of search engines should index your website.
Robots (also called spider or crawler) are automatic programs that search
through the Internet for new websites and enter these into the database
of a search engine. You can choose between four options:
Index, follow: The robots follow all links on this page and read the content of the HTML file and linked files. Then the robots index these and enter them into the database of a search engine.
Index, No follow: Index of this page is created and linked pages are ignored.
No index, follow: No index is created, linked pages are analyzed.
No index, no follow: No index is created, linked pages are ignored. This option prevents your HTML document from being included in a search database!
Expires (valid until): Check one of these fields to give information about the content of the website, e.g. if the content is only valid until a specific date.
To generate meta tags from the information you have entered, click the Generate button from the Generate page. If you have used special characters (e.g. 'ä', '&' etc.) in the field Keywords Hello Engines! will replace them automatically with suitable HTML codes. Then click Next.
In this step of the wizard, you can select, whether you want to paste generated meta data into existing HTML files, save it to a meta tag file (.mtg) or copy it to clipboard. Enter the respective path and click Next to exit the wizard.
