I am new to this whole website-internet thing and have no idea where on my
website I am supposed to place "tags" & codes in the website prior to
uploading the website to the internet. I have asked numerous people and have
looked it up thru several different help tools on the internet but have not
gotten any feedback regarding this. I am to the point that I am begging for
help. I have had website designed & uploaded to the internet but can't figure
out where to place codes at...PLEASE HELP!

What codes are you referring to? Are you wanting to make the website
password protected? What is the website address and what version of
Publisher are you using?

Don, I think tranquilo_o1 refers to the meta tags: keywords, description,
robots etc.

Once again, I don't know how it works on Pub 07 so . . . jump in Don.

I think I'll wait for an update from tranquilo_o1 so I won't confuse the
issue.

Go to Tools > Web page options to add some Search Engine information
including Description and keywords.

I learned recently from Spike that you could apply 'header tags' to text by
Format > Style and choosing H1, H2 etc.

You can add a robots.txt file to your root directory manually if you want to
use one. Reference: http://www.outfront.net/tutorials_02/adv_tech/robots.htm

Search engine optimization is a complicated and debatable 'art'. Google the
subject, 'keywords', 'header tags' etc and decide for yourself as to how
important these SEO methods are. Keep in mind though that if you don't have
good content it will all be a waste of time.

You clearly haven't learnt what the difference between 'header' and
'heading' is yet though.
<h1> <h2> etc. are 'heading' tags which determine text styling and should
sit within the document <body> tags.
'description' and 'keywords' are 'header' <meta> tags which sit within the
<head> tags.
Have a read of this: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_intro.asp

Nowadays search engines don't take much notice of what's in the document
header, although the 'description' tag content is often shown in result
lists. The textual content of the <body> section is far more important,
along with incoming links pointing to and between your web pages. Publisher
is not a good tool to be using to make web pages optimal for search engines
though - the html it generates is not standards compliant and can even
completely obscure the page content which you need to be indexed. It also
only provides a limited ability to customise the header tags, although you
can achieve this by manually editing the html files which Publisher
generates.
This may be of further help:

Thank you guys for working with me on this...my problem is exactly what
Geoffrey Chaucer said...I don't where to put the meta tags and the codes that
other search engines need for your site to come up when typing in random
words. The website is www.leakterminatorslv.com and it was created with
Publisher 2007
