Comment Tag used for SE that do not recognise META tags
From AndyB on 20 November '98
Hello All

I read an article that suggested that for search engines that don't
recognise META tags, that one should use the comment tag for the
description and place it imediately after the TITLE tag. i.e.

HTML
HEAD
TITLE this is where the title goes /TITLE
!-- This is where the description goes for search engines that do not
recognise META tags --
META name="description" Content="This is where the description goes for
search engines that do recognise META tags"
<META Name="keyword" ............etc.

Has anyone got any direct experience of this and is this good
practice?

Also, would this comment be used by SE as the first readable text
on a page and therefore be given more relevance?

Any help would be greatfully received

Regards

AndyB
