I was sitting in a meeting this week and the client's web agency asked if my company would be working with them on defining SEO tags.  Not wanting to sound like an idiot I said "sure".

 

My guess is that they are talking about adding keyword tags to their CMS system.  Does anyone have any other ideas?

There's no such thing of course. It's just a company who doesn't understand what they're talking about. You should have (and still should) ask them for clarification.

I would guess they're referring to tags that involve just communicating with search engines -- basically, meta data. But of course it's a misnomer.

They probably meant meta keywords.  But, to be fair to them, they might have meant

  • Title Tags
  • Meta Description Tags
  • Rel=Canonical Tags
  • Rel=Prev, Rel=Next Tags
  • Rel=Author
  • Rel=Publisher
  • Schema.Org Markup
  • Open Graph Markup
  • Twitter Card Markup
  • Rel=Hreflang
  • etc.

Boy, you folks must all be out on the east coast where it's freezing and there's nothing else to do on a beautiful, sunny Sunday morning (50degrees out in California)!

Thanks for your input.  

 

I will ask them and post their response!

It's 4PM here in central England and I have just been watching the rugby.  Temperature is a balmy 0oC (32oF) right now.



Oh and that list was what I was presenting on at SES London this week, so it didn't take too long to put together!
