My site won't display
Mood:  not sure
Topic: HTML Questions

I was trying to get my site on Google and it said I had to either add a meta tag or an html page. First I chose metatag which required me to add something in the html editor, which I did, that is when my page stopped displaying. I went back in to the html editor and deleted the tag I had added and resaved and still my site isn't displaying any more. Can anyone help me?


 I just tried to view my site again and this time got an error message:

! Problems with this Web page might prevent it from being displayed properly or functioning properly. etc. etc.

Then I click on the details tab and it says:

Line: 2

Char: 13

Error: Expected ';'

Code: 0

URL: http://www.lycos.ca/header-tripod-member/?Site=LycosTripod


But I don't know what it means.


Here's the text in my html editor:

<!-- \/ starthtml -->
   <!-- The block of META tags is required by Homepage Studio  -->
   <!-- to identify this file as created by Freeform Editor.   -->
   <!-- Please do not remove them, but feel free to append     -->
   <!-- them with your personal data below. Meta tags help     -->
   <!-- search engines identify the content of your page.       -->
   <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
   <META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="enter keywords here">
   <META NAME="description" CONTENT="enter a description here">
   <META NAME="author" CONTENT="enter your name here">
   <META NAME="generator" CONTENT="FreeFormEditor 1.0">
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000" link="#0000EE" vlink="#551A8B">

<!-- /\ end html  -->

Please tell me what is stopping my page from displaying.

 Thank you very much.

Name: "anonymous"

1- your site is empty.

2- you have to edit the meta tags. you need to edit the keywords and disctiption.

3- you need to add the title of the site between <TITLE> and </TITLE>

4- it takes a while for google to index new pages. it doesn't come instant.
