Default Search Engine

I want to place my site on a search engine. For this I made meta tags and gives the Key word but the search engine search only on the domain name How it can search on the contents of the site
The tags are

<META name="keywords" content="Paragliding in Pakistan , ParaPK, Hawk, Para, ">
<META name="description" content="Aviation Links - Paragliding">

I want when any user write Paragliding in Pakistan or any one which mention it search my site How it does ?

;;How it can search on the contents of the site
They are called robots, the following link is an exellent SEO resource (specific to Google)

TIP: Get rid of your spaces in the keyword tag

http://www.google.com/webmasters/gui...s.html#quality

This is a real big can of worms. A technique used to get 'a good ranking' on one SE is not going to work well for others, they all have similar aspects however rank them differently on the importance scale. Some search engines do not even look at meta tags, you need to optimize All areas to cover your bases.

NOTE: No body can 'guarantee' you a good ranking, they can do thier best to give you every chance at a good ranking only.

My understanding of what Google thinks gets 'the best chance at a good listing' in order of importance:

1. Title Tag
2.. Page Rank
3.. Meta Tags (maximize the lengths)
    a. 1024 characters including spaces is considered maximum for the 'keyword' meta tag
    b. 256 characters including spaces is considered maximum for the 'description' meta tag
4.. Page Copy
5.. Alt and title parameters inside html tags

There are many different types of meta tags in addition to the two you are using, you should look at these also

One thing more that my sites which are on the search engines. The search engines only access first page and leave other pages. What should I do for the search engines to search in whole site ?

Did you read the link in my last post? If you want your site to have 'the best possible chance' of a good Google ranking, dont just read the page the link takes you to, read all the relavent pages, it covers what you have asked and much much more. I would advise you to take all they say as 'how it is', Google are there own authority, they know more than anybody about how thier SE works.

To answer your question briefly, robots follow your links to other pages. Some say there is no need for meta tags on all pages, including them is not going to slow your page down, so why not. This is partly what I mean about giving yuor site the best possible chance of a good ranking. Also research the other types of meta tags in addition to the ones your have used!!
