View Full Version : Meta-tagging for non-content website

01-09-2006, 09:42 AM
Okay so i've read loads of things about meta tagging and how it's the content that speaks for itself...maximum of twenty i think, but somone said 1 or 2!

i've also read on one of your very good postings that it's better to have drips and drops coming in from a variety of sources than having one keyword that may be competing with the big boys...

okay so my trouble is that my site to be is a dating site. There are thousands of connotations to what people would search on. not to mention different ethnic groups etc...

And very little content to allow the search engines to spider....

However if you look on datingdirect.com - they have no meta tags? how is this possible?

i have about 38 tags of interest, from dating, personals, singles, romance and more. if i don't use one of these - it could be a popular search...

any tips, advice or guidance?

Yes...Most dating sites work through...

1) Affiliate Programs
American Singles, Adult Friend Finder etc.....

2) They Pay for advertising...such as Google adwords.

okay - so what do i do then?

just metatag as much as possible or try and write loads of content for this site with the keywords in it?

or perhaps concentrate on promoting the site...

i was planning to buy some opt-in email addresses, do an adsense advert, get writing some articles for linking and writing some press releases?

any advice would be much appreciated!

kind regards
