    I have been working with a traffic increase company. They tell me that my meta tags are not correct, but won't tell me how to fix them. I need some help. Website is

    Meta tags have very little effect on search engines these days. That's not to say that you shouldn't correct them though.

    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /><title>Clip-A-Can</title><meta name="description" content="Aluminum can handle" /><meta name="keywords" content="clip, can, handle, can handle, cold beer, cold pop, cold soda, pop, beer, soda, beverage, beverage handle, party supplies, ergonomic" /><base href="http://clip-a-can.yolasite.com/index.php" /><link href="index.php?renderPaletteCSS=1279209717" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="classes/components/Image/layouts/Default/Default.css" />
    </head>

    There's a bit of things to change. Try to change your meta tags to be more descriptive. Do some more keyword search, etc.

    If you can save your html page changes to your server, then just open the page in an html editor or Notepad. Change the meta info. And resave/upload to your host server.

    I followed the direction of the traffic website, added some more keywords. I hope I'm doing things right.

    Are you using Google webmaster tool at all? I suggest you look into it. It will help you.

    <meta name="keywords" content="clip, can, handle, can handle, cold beer, cold pop, cold soda, pop, beer, soda, beverage, beverage handle, party supplies, ergonomic,clay aiken navy federal credit union pentagon federal credit union banana republic oriental trading company atlantic city casinos san diego union tribune" />

    keywords tag looks little off. You have too many keywords it seems and it is not consistent with using a comma.

    I used Google webmaster, and also added some commas. Does it look right now?

    Try this:

    <title>Clip-A-Can Pop Can Holder</title>
    <meta name="description" content="Aluminum Can holder that holds pops, beer and other types of beverages" />
    <meta name="keywords" content="plastic can holder, can holder, pop can holder, pop can holders, clip-a-can, can handle, cold beer, cold pop, cold soda, pop, beer, soda, beverage, beverage handle, party supplies" />

    Changes I've made:

    1) I have changed your keyword "can handle" to "can holder". I think "can handle" is not something people will be searching for to get to your site. "can handle" could be part of a sentence. I believe "can holder" is the right term for your product.

    2) Description - added a little bit more. Your description didn't say anything about what it does.

    3) Keywords - I have removed a lot of keywords that you will never rank up for and added relevant keywords that will help you rank on search engines and elsewhere...

    4) Title - added the word "pop can holder". I think you should target this keyword.

    Best of luck.

    1) In the tittle you can put 2 keywords also

    2) Description - A unique description that has coherence in your niche

    3) Keywords - in the first page you can have 10 keywords, but in other pages just 5 or 6

    4) Title -Origial tittle and unique a good xample is this, keyword1 | your nice tittle | keyword2

    I hope help you!
    Cheers
