FrontPage Tools for Meta Tags

DEAR TINA: At the moment I am opening each page to edit this line on the code page: (meta name="description" content="Fill in the content.")

1. Is there a tool that would make the review of the description meta tag easy?

2. Also, is there a tool that can give me a report of this meta tag per page?

Meta Tag FrontPage Addons

DEAR JANE: There are plenty of tools available.

Question 1.

D2Stuff has many other addons within the same app, not free but there is a trial and is quite cheap considering what else you get ... the prices may go up soon.

MetaData Editor - This is free and for 98, 2000 and 2002 only it's quite old.

PowerMeta - by Jimco which comes with a lot of other stuff, similar to rankpal somewhat. (PowerMeta is free with Jim's book which is well worth every
penny btw) otherwise you buy there is a Trial

Meta Tag Maker 2004 by websunlimted

Note: Using third party meta tag addons will at the present time mess up your dwt coding for your meta tags, so just use the tool and copy and paste the content as below.

See this two part article for more info on dwt's. (Dynamic Web Templates)

( http://www.outfront.net/tutorials_02/fp_techniques/dwt-1.htm and http://www.outfront.net/tutorials_02/fp_techniques/dwt-2.htm )

I also have a free ebook available which is updated DWT Ebook

With FrontPage 2003 you can now right click and choose page properties and insert content into title keywords and description right away.

Question 2.

Originally I did have a Free FrontPage Addon to tell you about but this has now been discontinued.
