The Meta Tag Construction
This clever tool places
proper meta tags in your HTML document.
Search engines use meta
tags to help rank your site for relevancy and position.
It is designed to:
Place properly formatted
meta tags in your HTML documents
verify the spelling of your
description tag so your site will be presentable when visitors find it
via a search engine
verify that appropriate values
are used in the meta tags to provide the best possible chance to be indexed
higher by the search engines.
TagGen 1.1 combines database
support, reporting, and wizard style selection in one package to provide
you with a complete meta tag creation and implementation solution. TagGen
1.1 was created to help web developers easily control the meta tags within
their web documents. TagGen has many advanced features that separate it
from the competition.
Database Driven - Borland
Database Engine driven with a standard Paradox table type. The BDE has
been used for speed and ease of configuration. When we reviewed the database
requirements for the system we considered three items: scalability, speed,
and reliability. We considered Apollo, DAO, and BDE, but BDE was the winner
hands down! The entire BDE configuration is handled by our installation
program, you will never have to configure it. With TagGen, your data is
being managed by the premier PC database engine! The system saves data
based on your selection of:
Domain - (the site to be
managed). This is a label to identify the domain to TagGen, and is not
used to access the domain via http or ftp.
File Name - The complete
name and path of the file to manage.
Keywords - This section keeps
track of all keywords entered for a file. Keywords are not saved at the
default site level. Please view our FAQ on Keywords and Descriptions. All
TagGen keyword fields support a global keyword list you can access at the
touch of a button!
Settings - These tags can
be saved at a domain level (default) or at the page level. This gives you
the flexibility of defining settings that are often repeated across many
pages (such as copyright and PICS labels).
Multiple Web Sites Support
- Configure and maintain multiple domains. Another feature that separates
TagGen from the competition is its ability to support single or multiple
domains. TagGen is the ONLY product in its class that does this!
first followed by PICS Labels, 1 Line keywords and 1 Line Description.
Multiple Page Updating -
Update single or more pages at a time. TagGen can allow you to update meta
tags on literally thousands of pages at one time. Imagine changing the
page expiration date on 100 files one file at a time! The same is true
of all of the other settings or PICS Label tags. Think of it; you take
a new site under management, you click on a few buttons, select all, add
your tags via a simple form and Click on UPDATE HTML FILES! So you just
updated 100 files to comply with HTML Standards and you can print a report
to show your work and you are done! This can be accomplished in 5-10 minutes,
in the past this could take 5-10 hours!
<HEAD> Section Correction
– Automatically ensures that your <HEAD> section is formatted properly!
Search Engines are particular how they view the data in meta tags/in the
<HEAD> section of your HTML, so TagGen automatically takes care of:
These simple formatting
steps can make a great difference in the rating of your site.
Spell Checker – This option
ensures that your document and description tag do not include spelling
errors. The description tag allows you to present a formatted summary of
your site to the search engine user. This is the first impression that
they will get, so it is wise to spell check it!
The Spell Checker:
10 Keyword positions
- Keywords are critical in obtaining good site positioning
Has a common user interface
Has an Auto-correct feature
that you can modify by editing the AutoFix.txt file in the application
Has a standard Dictionary
and a Custom dictionary that accepts user entries
Additional language dictionaries
available: British, Dutch, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
Optionally writes to
the Clipboard or updates your HTML files. This flexible program allows
you to update your files how you see fit!

you to load your work into additional pages as you see fit. You will not
have to constantly enter tags like you must with other tools. (TagGen supports
all file types that require meta tag info: .ASP, .TAM, and more! This feature
does, however, require that the file has a <HEAD> section or you will
have to use the copy to the clipboard function to update your files.)

and WEBURBIA rating tags. - You no longer have to update hundreds of pages
individually when your rating changes. Assigning ratings to your site has

LINK Tag Support - One of
the most under used tags in the head section is the LINK tag. TagGen provides
the two most commonly used LINK tags: HELP and CONTENTS. These are what
we recommend that you use. Of course, TagGen will allow you to enter any
of the other link tags, too.
Multi-User Support - (Multi
User Version Only) Your Enterprise solution for intranets or larger web
development companies. This may be one of the most important features of
this software. TagGen supports multiple users with full record locking.
Users can work in the same domain on different files or on different domains.

version does and you can purchase as many user licenses as you require.

update process you are most comfortable with.
Read your existing Tags -
Using the Options page and Keyword Description page, TagGen can read your
existing values and automatically load them. This saves a great deal of
time when bringing a new site under management.
Updateable Lookups - This
is a major feature of TagGen! Lookup tables allow you to pick entries quickly,
but sometimes what you want just isn't in the list. All tag values accessible
from lookups are update able. When you need a new classification or a new
rating type, just enter it! All lookup tables are accessible via the table
editor - even keywords! Although we now list over 75 classifications, you
can still add your own. If you are developing intranets, you can even change
the distribution tag to match your requirements!
Supports Default Site Settings
- TagGen allows you to set up default tag settings for a domain and then
simply load them to a new page and then customize them! TagGen allows you
to update site defaults, distribution list, classification list, search
bot text, keyword list and rating text. This is not a small unstable text
based database! This system was developed using the award winning Borland
Database Engine. TagGen can support up to 255 users and up to 2 billion
records per table. TagGen (The Meta Tag Construction Kit), allows you to
set up default meta tag settings for a domain, load them to a new page,
and then customize them!
You can even report
on all sites or files at once! This special report prints out all sites
(domains) managed by the system and notes the files being managed. Use
the ‘All Sites Default Settings’ to print out all sites (domains) managed
by the system with their ‘default settings’; use the ‘Site Classifications’
report to see all site classification choices; use the ‘Ratings’ report
to list all of the current ratings available to choose from. Of course,
each of these reports can be printed out or viewed on the screen.
