How To Use HTML Meta Tags Want top search engine rankings? Just add meta tags and your website will magically rise to the top, right? Wrong. While there is still some debate about which meta tags remain useful and important to search engines, meta tags definitely aren't a magic solution to gaining rankings in Google, Bing, Yahoo, or elsewhere – so let's kill that myth right at the outset. Let's look at what meta tags are, what meta tags matter, and how to avoid mistakes when implementing meta tags on your website. What Are Meta Tags? HTML meta tags are officially page data tags that lie between the open and closing head tags in the HTML code of a document. The text in these tags is not displayed, but parsable and tells the browsers (or other web services) specific information about the page. Here's a code example of meta tags: <head><title>Not a Meta Tag, but required anyway </title><meta name="description" content="Awesome Description Here"><meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8"></head>

THE SYSTEMS LIBRARIAN - Library Technology Forecast for 2015 and Beyond THE SYSTEMS LIBRARIAN Library Technology Forecast for 2015 and Beyond by Marshall Breeding With another year winding down, we’re pausing to review some of the accomplishments with technology in libraries and consider what might be in store. Each year seems to bring an accelerating pace of change. Relentless Consolidation In 2014, the library-technology industry saw another phase of consolidation. One component of the change relates to the increased involvement of private equity firms as they gain ownership of companies from the individuals or families that originally founded them. Through these previous rounds of consolidation, the strategic products and technologies used by libraries remain under the control of fewer companies of larger size and capacity. Looking into the next year or two, I anticipate that the consolidation of the industry will continue. However, it is inevitable that the industry will be dominated by a shrinking tier of very large corporations. Mobile
