Default Customer Support Site Master Pg. Meta Tags

I am trying to utilize the dynamically generated Meta tag functionality by passing in specific keywords and descriptions based upon which aspx page may be selected. Ex. for the products page you may send specific keywords that relate to a specific product. However each page's keyword would change based upon what may be selected from within that page.

Also would search engines pick up this type of dynamic keyword logic.
Thank you, Tag

Hi taggiese,

I am not sure I understand your post. Are you asking a question? Or merely making a statement?

Yes, I am asking a question on how you would pass the keyword and description to the master page based upon which page or product you would select?

My second question would search engines pick up these meta tags?

I still don't understand exactly what you're asking. Each page can access the keywords and description in the application like this:

Me.Master.Keywords = "My Key Words"

This is shown in the page ProductDetails.aspx under ContentFiles.

When you set the keywords on the master, they eventually end up in the final HTML in the browser. So, yes, they do get picked up by search engines because they are part of the HTML.

However, if you have a dynamic page where users have to select something (e.g. trigger a post back based on, say, an item in a drop down list) search engines won't be able to follow the page, and so they'll never see the keywords.

Does this help?

If not, can you describe in much more detail what it is that you need?

Yes, you answered my question. I had not seen the productdetails code execute and I now see where you set the meta tag based upon the selection.

I have been looking for a solution like this to accommodate variance with states and a keyword. Thank you for your time.
