    I have found a few different conventions for meta tags and would appreciate advice. I was advised this is newer better:

    Code:
    <HTML LANG=en-GB>
    <HEAD>
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
    <TITLE>test title</TITLE>
    <LINK REV="made" href="mailto:test@test.com">
    <META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="test 1, test 2, test 3">
    <META NAME="description" CONTENT="test description">
    <META NAME="author" CONTENT="mr test">
    <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="ALL">
    <!-- Metadata generated by http://vancouver-webpages.com/META/mk-metas.html -->
    </HEAD>
    But have seen this a lot:

    Code:
    <HTML LANG=en-GB>
    <HEAD PROFILE="http://purl.org/metadata/dublin_core">
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
    <TITLE>test title</TITLE>
    <LINK REV="made" href="mailto:king test">
    <META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="test 1, test 2, test 3">
    <META NAME="description" CONTENT="test description">
    <META NAME="rating" CONTENT="General">
    <META NAME="revisit-after" CONTENT="5 days">
    <META NAME="VW96.objecttype" CONTENT="Homepage">
    <LINK REL=SCHEMA.VW96 HREF="http://vancouver-webpages.com/META/VW96-schema.html">
    <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="ALL">
    <META NAME="DC.Title" CONTENT="test title">
    <META NAME="DC.Creator" CONTENT="mr test">
    <META NAME="DC.Subject" CONTENT="test subject">
    <META NAME="DC.Description" CONTENT="test description">
    <META NAME="DC.Publisher" CONTENT="mrs test">
    <META NAME="DC.Contributors" CONTENT="captain test">
    <META NAME="DC.Language" SCHEME="RFC1766" CONTENT="EN">
    <!-- Metadata generated by http://vancouver-webpages.com/META/mk-metas.html -->
    </HEAD>
    I am guessing probably not a lot in it. I have also seen variations with the bare minimum information that some ppl swear by always running with the least code possible.

    Also found this cool tool which coded the above in 2.3 seconds for me. Hope it helps some ppl.

    Code:

    Shhh dont tell too many ppl lol. Hope this is at least giving a little back as BHW has taught me so much ;)

    Metatags are so 90´s..

    Only ones you should be using now are title and description, rest are a waste of time

    And all of those 3 are dead now, which just proves my point of how outdated this thing is

    I was guessing that @ nufaman but the tool still gets referenced recently I think I got from an article at W3C.

    However metatags are interesting as some tests into different HTML tags here suggested wrapping your keywords in them can still be effective although I believe meta data is almost always overrated and holds little weight in comparison to factors such as link building, domain age and many others.

    I believe the only useful ones are title, description and keywords. But posted here to get other opinions.

    The other post I was taking about is here:
