Default Problem with Search Engines

My proble is that my site does not appear in the search engines,
the syntax of my default.asp is:
<meta NAME="keywords" VALUE="mykewords, mykeywords2,etc,">
am I doing well?
If not.
How is the syntax to include "keywords"?
Where do i have to include it ? Only in my homepage ?

it takes some time for the search engines' robots to find your page... this time takes usually from 4 to 6 weeks so don't worry about meta tags cuz they are OK... you may also submit a form to add your site to search engine's directory...

here's one http://www.google.com/addurl.html

what you have is fine, but if you want to have good results on search engines, use all of these meta tags:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<meta NAME="revisit-after" CONTENT="15 days">
<meta name="keywords" content="">
<meta name="description" content="">
<meta name="AUTHOR" content="darkdog">

the revisit after tells their spider to check ur site again for updates so if you add a few more keywords they will know. in the description it is important to have key phrases, because ppl that are searching for phrases will see the places in your description that come up.
another tip, is aside from meta tags, to use html standards of orginization. by this i mean use the <h1><h2><h3> tags, and definately have a good title for your page, a lot of search engines will put your page at the top of the list if your title contains the search criteria. and if you don't like the way the header tags display text, change them using style sheets. most browsers support them nowdays and they are very useful for standardizing your site.
