How to add keywords

29/03/2008

Do you want your web-to-print designs to be found on the site and in through search engines? You have to add a few keywords for this to happen. Adding a few tags to describe the purpose, color, format, mood, feel, style, age group, occasion, process type, etc. will go a long way.

Keyword recommendations

You should tag your templates if you want search engines to notice them.

For humans:

  • Keep them short and informative
  • Do not use special characters or punctuation unless absolutely necessary
  • Do not use underscores
  • Repeating keywords are removed and show only once
  • Describe multiple qualities, not a list of all possible variations of just one quality

For search engines:

  • Use several similar keywords to emphasize the main topic
  • Do not overuse – the page may be considered spam
  • Words joined by underscore are considered to be one word
  • Words separated by hyphens considered to be separate words
  • Too many keywords make page look unattractive
