There are 2 new properties which have been added to the Page class in ASP.Net 4.0 :

  • Keywords
  • Description

Those of you who know HTML will automatically recognize them as  Meta Tags. Being that they are properties of the Page class, you can easily add them into your code to generate them dynamically.

As you probably also know, many people believe that these two Meta Tags play a major part in SEO for your site. You don’t know what SEO is? OK – SEO is an acronym which stands for Search Engine Optimization.  Most people consider the way that you build your Meta Tags directly affects the way a search enginie ranks your site.

I’m not so sure they are all that great for SEO any more. I’ve heard it both ways, but if you want to add them into your pages, this certainly is an easy way to do it dynamically!
