Page Footers

Page footers provide information about the author and the document, maybe the last date it was modified, as well as a means to send the author a message by e-mail. This is the place for the address tag which simply stylizes a block of text in italic. It is a good idea to make footers brief, informative, and consistent between your different web pages. Some useful information to include is:
* Title or subject of the current page
* Date it was created/updated
* Copyright if appropriate
* Name and e-mail for the web page author
* Name and hypertext link to affiliation/organization
The HTML format for the address tag looks like:
text text text text text
text text text text text
HTML inside the address tag is legal, so you can modify it with
bold tags, line breaks, and hyperlinks.

Step One:
Open yourlastname.htm

Step Two:
Add a page footer to the bottom of your page - just before the
</body> tag:
Last Updated March 17, 2002<br>
by <a
Your Name here~/a>

Step Three:
Save and load it into your web browser.

Meta Data
META tags are syntax that was created to allow "meta" or "extra" information to be embedded in a web page, in the part that is not displayed by the web browsers. META tags allow you to add extra information that will help identify your web page when people use Internet searches. The place that these tags go are within the <head> ... </head> part of your HTML document.
The HTML format for META tags is:

<META name"'description" content=This is where you type the
description of your page and content.">

<META name="keywords" content= “librarian, student, graduate">

Resumes are often retrieved from databases using keyword searches, so in your keywords include every program you have used, every language you know, and all the job skills you possess. Research the positions you want and compile a list of the words you see repeated in the ads. Jargon is important-you will probably come up with a number of skills that are listed that you already possess. The maximum length of a META tag, from the first < to the last > is 1024 characters or about 100 words.

Step One:
Open yourlastname.htm

Step Two:
After the <head> tag add these two meta tags:

<META name=''description'' content” Resume of Your Science, M.A. Information Studies.">

<META NAME’ keywords" CONTENT=" school of information science, library science, librarian, public libraries, reference services, research, HTML, web design, Word, Access, Filemaker, Dreamweaver">

Step Three:
Save and load into your web browser.

The addition of these META tags will not change the appearance of your web page but once they are placed on a web server, they will enhance how your web page is "indexed" by the different web search sites.
