What is the meaning of the html tag HTTP-EQUIV "WINDOW-TARGET"

The html metatag HTTP-EQUIV WINDOW TARGET specifies the named window of the current page. This tag can be used to stop a page appearing in a frame with many (not all) browsers.

In the past people used this tag to avoid that a page was shown in a frameset. A page could 'break out of the frameset' and was shown as a seperate sole page.

Using the content-script html tag doesn't influence your ranking with the search engines. The title of your page the keywords and the description tag do influence your ranking.

<meta http-equiv="Window-Target" content="_value">

Example meta tag http-equiv="Window-Target"


Add the following meta tag in the source of your webpage. The difference in spelling at the end of the tag is either you use     " /> = xml or "> = html.

<meta http-equiv="Window-Target" content="_top">


Where should you add meta tags ?

You may add meta tags like title, description and keywords to all of your webpages, so not only in the first index page. Make sure that on every page relevant meta tags are added.  Add keywords and phrases that are relevant and correspond to the text and the language on that specific page. It might be a lot of work to add specific meta tags to each page but you will notice in time that it works!
