HTML header meta-tags 2002-12-22 16:20:33 When I look at the header of the HTML source, I can find some meta-tags that raise some questions for me:[META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"]Is this character set the default setting for all pages in Hydrogen Audio? It might explain why I sometimes have difficulties with extended characters of some posters like apostrophes or the Euro symbol. Perhaps another character set would be better like UTF-8? My browser MSIE 5.5 is set to ISO-8859-1 = Western Europe right now, by the way...[META name="keywords" content="Hydrogen Audio, Audio, Compression, Audio Compression, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, encoder, codec, decoder, open source, EAC, CBR, VBR, music, settings, switches, portable, samples, listening test, ripping, audiophile, hi-fi, headphones, transparency, MPC, AAC, lossless, transcode, Fraunhofer, FhG, LAME, Psytel, Musepack"]I miss e.g. MP4 in these keywords while others are redundant like mentioning "audio compression" twice or not separating "ogg" and "vorbis" with a comma. By the way, search robots usually don't index so many keywords as meta-tags (if at all), so it would be better to clean them up, i.e. deleting the very unspecific ones and putting the important ones like the file extensions at the beginning of the tag.[META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="ALL"]I'm not sure if this is necessary at all, if you just want the search robots to simply index the whole website from A-Z. But this also makes me wonder if anybody has ever subscribed www.hydrogenaudio.org to the most prominent search engines like Google, Altavista and Yahoo? Because if you don't, no search robot will ever come to index your site. And this seems to be the case with Hydrogen Audio, as I never get a HA forum posting as one of the first results when searching the web for some audio compression related question.
