Re: Server Side Includes

Search engines see exactly the same HTML that browsers see.
As you are using a server side include, the file is incorporated into the HTML BEFORE it leaves the server.

So, the short answer would be, Yes you can use server side includes and have your meta tags in a seperate file.

As far as I am aware, the search engines won't index pages with a ? in the address (ie. pages created dynamically by CGI or ASP). Standard ASP and SSI's are ok.
