    I've recently built a few websites using Wordpress & premium themes.
    I've been told that a few of the sites are showing up when browsed in some web cafes in the U.S.

    The site are perfectly clean sites, all about flowers, floristry & gardening & there's certainly no 'naughty' words on the sites :)

    Someone suggested that it might be because there aren't any 'Rating' Meta Tags on the sites & i should go in and add them as 'General' rating.

    Surely if Meta Rating tags were that important, wordpress would install them automatically.....wouldn't they?
    I can't see them anywhere on my sites.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on this or whether i'm missing the option to include them in Wordpress or even whether i should bother editing the Home page to include the Rating Meta Tags?

    Thanks.

    I think general consensus on meta tags is they're not that important any more especially for Google, but it doesn't hurt to use them so you may as well pop them in.

    Download the Platinum SEO Wordpress plugin, or any other plugins you can find which allow you to edit META tags
