Title: Html codes show at top of page
Post by Seb on Mar 4th, 2008, 2:02pm
Hi,

In HyperPublish:

I did:

insert>html>at page start>script/meta

Then I pasted:

META
NAME="title" CONTENT="index.htm">

and now,  I can see:  META
NAME="title" CONTENT="index.htm">

at the top of the page.

What should I do ?

Seb

the code you wrote is incorrect, so it shown as text by the browser.

the correct (correct for the HTML syntax) code is
<META  
NAME="title" CONTENT="index.htm">

(you forgot the trailing  < )

By the way this code (this way) is not useful and actually it is dangerous, as you are telling to the search engines that your page title is "index.htm" (instead of a descriptive text; the title should be a descriptive text)


This tag is normally already generated (correctly) by HyperPublish, that generates something like

<META  
NAME="title" CONTENT="The title that you visually assigned to your page">

where "The title that you visually assigned to your page" is the title you put with Format >Page properties (the box at the top left).

Example for www.hyperpublish.com the title is "Create a CD catalogue, a Web site, a manual on Web or make autoinstall CD..."


In other words, HyperPublish already does all common search engine optimizations. There are a lot of websites that tell you what to do, but as we already know (we are here not from yesterday), we incorporated all these stuff automatically in HyperPublish. Of course a duplicate won't usually make damage. But try to not add wrong stuff! :-)

Talking about optimization:  what's HP's position towards XHTML ?

Thanks.

XHTML comes from XML + HTML.
A nice world such as "Web 2.0", good for TV shows and news....
But at present we don't know any practical effect... of course we are open to any suggestion... :)
