Hi,

I have just designed a website online using freewebs, and have purchased a domain name for the website.
What I want to do is get the site on Google / Yahoo search engines so people can find it easily online.

I've been told that I need to have META files embedded in the website for this to happen?

 

What are META files? and how do I go about putting them on the website?

any advise would be much appreciated!

Hi,
I think you mistaken meta files with meta data
meta data is a kewords, description and other stuff for your site but for search engines keywords and description is the important bit.
It looks like the following
meta name="keywords" content=" "
meta name="description" content=" "
For an example go to any website right click on the page and click view source and at the top of the source page you will see the metta tags.

to submit your site to google and yahoo go to the following sites
http://www.google.com/addurl/
https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/submit

I hope that helps

I suggest you visit and read www.google.com/webmasters. There are a LOT more than keywords to make a site visible...
