To improve the effectiveness of keyword search engines, you should use two forms of the META tag: <META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="Keywords and phrases, separated by commas, especially those that don't appear in the displayed text of the page, for example because they describe information that is presented graphically."> <META NAME="description" CONTENT="A short description of the information presented by the page."> There is a third form of the META tag that you may use, which causes an automatic bounce to another Web page, as outlined in the very last section of this Web page, "Dynamic Loading."
