I am just about to submit a site to all the search engines and need to clear something up first.

I am using the decription and keywords meta tags for the spider search engines.

On the page i am submitting there is no text (all graphics for links etc) apart from the words "best viewed in 800 x 600).

In the past i have submitted similar pages and have found that the search engines ignore my description tags and put the first text it finds on the page as the description that appears under the listing in these engines.

Is there anything that I should be doing differently?

Urgent help needed ASAP

cheers

H.

The problem is some spiders "index" differently from others. You are not doing anything wrong at all...

I suggest using Web promote to submit your site to the major search engines, as you can supply descriptions of your pages directly (http://freesubmit.webpromote.com/).

Another work around is to supply <ALT> tags with your images, most spiders read these tags.
