hi all
I hav tried using meta tags in my website to get my website listed , but it came out to be of no use. I need to quickly to do, since i hav already launched my site , but it doesn't get listed when i search it on google.
I am giving the meta tags that i have used:

-------
<head>
<title></title>
<META name="description" content="Services offered by Sanjeev Seema & associates">
<META name="keywords" content="Sanjeev Seema & Associates, Sanjeev Dhewal, Chartered Accountant">
----------


Please give the tags which i need to put in the source and where exactly i need to put them , i mean in between head tag or body or after title tag.

Thanks in advance.

Search engines spider your site by following links. If your site is not linked by others then you are not going to rank high. Meta tags really do not do anything these days.

You can submit your site to google here: http://www.google.com/addurl/?continue=/addurl

It takes time to get listed, it is not a magical switch to get on them. I never submitted my sites to them, but I am listed.

You can go to all of the major sites and add your url if you want. Just do not pay someone to get you listed. They use techniques that can get you banned.
