Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: Meta Tags and PHP

  1. #1

    Barcode Meta Tags and PHP

    Hello,

    IŽd like to know if I put all 'header' of my site in a php archive called header.php, like this:

    Code:
    header('<meta name="language" content="en" />');
    and on index.php i put:

    Code:
    include("header.php");
    the robots will be able to read this information? being that this information do not appear in html code.

    Theorhetically, it will make no difference to the robots - the wole point of server-side scripts is that they are executed on the server before the page is loaded. So if a robot crawled that page, the page would request the header file to be included, spit back the output as HTML and that is what the robot would see.

    Either way, I wouldn't worry about your meta info too much if it's purely for the sake of search engines, it caries very little weight these days, if any at all. Just make sure you have good page titles.
