Vw96.objecttype And Dc. Meta Codes
Posted 17 January 2004 - 02:35 PM
<META NAME="VW96.objecttype" CONTENT="15 keyword phrases">
<META NAME="DC.Title" CONTENT="6 keyword phrases">
<META NAME="DC.Subject" CONTENT="15 keyword phrases">
<META NAME="DC.Description" CONTENT="15 keyword phrases">
<META NAME="DC.Coverage.PlaceName" CONTENT="Global">
Because this SEO company, possibly uses black hat SEO methods (thanks to this group, I noticed this and am canceling my contract), I am wondering if these are viable codes.
What does each code mean? What are their purpose? Do they help rankings/indexing?
Thanks for any input on this!

If you want to read up on metadata that's not commonly used, there's a pretty good article at Webmonkey.

The "Vancouver Page" was a tad confusing to me From what I gather, the VW96 is supposed to narrow down the category for the site. But from what I read, it seems that by using several categories (i.e: 15 keyword phrases) defeats the whole point of the tag in the first place. Wouldn't that end up being considered spammy then?
Thanks for your input!

Just a couple suggestions... write or outsource copy for the keywords you are trying for and optimize more than just the home page once you have the content... you also have content in the form of the articles so why not optimize the content you already have...? also do more thorough keyword research as it appears your going for some pretty unrealistic keyword phrases such as "weight loss"...

Dublin Core Meta Tag Project Home Page is the site.
This was started by librarians, mainly for librarians, in order to have a structured environment of data classification of web documents. Since librarians already use a closed environment to classify books and such, they expanded to create a set of rules in order to classify web documents.
Mainly seen in internal webs right now though they are trying to get the Internet at large to use it also. However, like original meta tags, how to enforce the proper use has not been addressed.
This set of meta tags can co-exist with the orignal meta tags on web sites.
The only engine that I know that will search DC tags is AtomZ.

Taphilo, thank you for the thorough description of DC; it makes more sense now.
And Chino, I appreciate your comments and am taking in your suggestions. Copywriting is not my forte (can ya tell?!) and have considered out-sourcing it to someone who can improve my copy on all my main pages.
The keywords I chose were with guidance from the aforementioned SEO company that I am trying to break free from. The copy I wrote on the index.html page was for the keywords in my tags, however after learning (read: seriously absorbing) how to better target my audience, thanks mostly to this forum, I know I need to change my keywords. However, I cannot *touch* my keywords, nor any of the meta code, until I receive my refund from this SEO company or it will void my contract, meaning I would not be eligible for a refund. (This SEO company *says* they'll process my refund on the 22nd).
I have been researching what keywords would better suit my site with hopes to achieve better SERPs and more targeted customers.
Do you, or anyone, have any suggestions on how to better chose my keywords? The tools I am using are from Wordtracker and Overture Suggest Keywords. But sometimes it really feels like I am throwing darts in the dark.....
