Open Text does a standard keyword search for returning search results. The Open Text database contains your html and uses it for searches. If you have a title and a couple of words in your html document your page can be searched through Open Text. Keywords
a user searches for in Open Text will show up if they match text on your
web site or meta tags.
When adding your URL to Open Text you are asked to give the location of your web site and your e-mail address. A spider is then sent by Open Text to visit your site to copy your html to the Open Text database. Open Text says it has robots roving the web.
Open Text does not treat meta tags differently
from normal text. This is indexed and used for searches. The description
displayed when your site is searched is a short description of what Open
Text considers your page is about.
There are several ways you can optimize
