>I am not an expert of these things either but here are a few other meta tags that can be added. Some people are sceptical about the use and if they actually help. i can tell you from my own experience that they have help me greatly. My sites are ranked higher and the bots come back evey 7 days days so what every changes I make to the meta is updated. Also you need to check into the cloaking of meta tags. Also you may want to look into gateways and doorways

What does that one do? I've never seen it used in any website that I've
studied. We don't use it and we get robots from all of them plus many
more. I don't see it used by sites that rank first.

What she is missing is a meta listing of "keywords."

Remember that any code that you add to a site slows down loading and may
reduce word density. Even comment tags must be read, if not displayed.
Dozens of meta tags have been suggested over the years. Only a handfull
have any support by SEs.

As far as "revisit" goes, SEs revisit when they want to, not when you
tell them to. The best way to get a lot of revisits is probably to
change your site often.
