YAV Interactive has released a new version of their utility Meta TAg Manager. Meta Tag Manager does just what it sounds like, it helps you manage your Meta Tags in HTML documents. The new version brings Mac OS 9 compatibilities and other improvements. According to YAV Interactive:
YAV Interactive Media (http://www.yav.com) today announced the upgrade of Meta Tag Manager to version 2.0.1. Meta Tag Manager is the first and only software of its kind for the Macintosh. It is the ultimate tool for fine-tuning and optimizing a document's meta tags. This process can enhance a page's search engine relevancy ranking and assure that queries that should find a particular page, do in fact find that page. Anyone creating webpages should be using Meta Tag Manager.
Version 2.0.1 sports a new interface, OS9 compatibility, and new defaults. Support for more file types, more meta tags, drag-and-drop, and several new menus have been added. All user requests have been addressed. The restrictions for unregistered copies of the program have been somewhat relaxed. The key restriction is that unregistered users cannot use the batch-processing features. The price remains unchanged at $30.
Meta tags are usually not visible in a browser but are used by search engine "spiders" to index and rank a website or homepage. Every search engine has its own approach to handling on-line documents and even their utilization of meta tags varies widely. Rather than leave the fate of a meticulously crafted web presence to a spider's often overly generalized methods, Meta Tag Manager lets the individual take control. With dozens of options to automate the management of meta tags, Meta Tag Manager makes it easy to analyze and maximize the important meta tags of an entire website or a single html document.
Meta Tag Manager provides ongoing feedback about how a document's meta tags will be treated by up to ten search engines (including the top seven). Meta Tag Manager generates custom advice in easy-to-understand English. One click of the "Update" button can add twelve meta tags auto-formatted in optimum syntax to a document. And Meta Tag Manager can conditionally add, append, prepend, or merge tags to a whole group of files with a single press of the "Batch" button. Collect all keywords from a website. Analyze the interaction between keywords, headings, and body text. Designate often used material to be added automatically to important tags. "Carry over" tags from one file to another. Strip unwanted meta tags. Create "Tag Reports" and much more.
