Introduction

 

Today, in this article let's play around with one of the interesting and most useful concepts in .NET 4.0.

Question: What are page metakeywords and metadescription properties?

In simple terms "It enables the search engines to filter out the data content within the webpage with these properties".

Step 1: Create a new "ASP.NET Web Application", as in:

Step 2: The complete code WebForm1.aspx looks like this:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="WebForm1.aspx.cs" Inherits="PageMetaApp.WebForm1" %>

 

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head id="Head1" runat="server">

    <title></title>

</head>

<body>

    <form id="form1" runat="server">

    <center>

        <div>

            <table>

                <tr>

                    <td colspan="2">

                        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Page Meta and Meta-Description  in .NET"

                            Font-Bold="true" Font-Size="Large" Font-Names="Verdana" ForeColor="Maroon"></asp:Label>

                    </td>

                </tr>

                <tr>

                    <td>

                        <asp:Label ID="Label3" runat="server" Text="Please Enter Meta Keywords" Font-Size="Large"

                            Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Italic="true"></asp:Label>

                    </td>

                    <td>

                        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Width="120px"></asp:TextBox>

                    </td>

                </tr>

                <tr>

                    <td>

                        <asp:Label ID="Label2" runat="server" Text="Please Enter Meta-Description Properties"

                            Font-Size="Large" Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Italic="true"></asp:Label>

                    </td>

                    <td>

                        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" Width="120px"></asp:TextBox>

                    </td>

                </tr>

                <tr>

                    <td colspan="2" align="center">

                        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Set Properties" Font-Names="Verdana"

                            Width="213px" BackColor="Orange" Font-Bold="True" OnClick="Button1_Click" />

                    </td>

                </tr>

                <tr>

                    <td colspan="2" align="center">

                        <asp:Label ID="Label5" runat="server" Font-Bold="true" Font-Names="Verdana" ForeColor="Maroon"></asp:Label>

                    </td>

                </tr>

            </table>

        </div>

    </center>

    </form>

</body>

</html>

Step 3: The complete code WebForm1.aspx.cs looks like this:
 

using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.Linq;

using System.Web;

using System.Web.UI;

using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

namespace PageMetaApp

{

    public partial class WebForm1 : System.Web.UI.Page

    {

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

        {

            TextBox1.Focus();

        }

        protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        {

            if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(TextBox1.Text) || string.IsNullOrEmpty(TextBox2.Text))

            {

                Label5.Text = "Please Enter Some Values"; Label5.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;

            }

            else

            {

                this.Page.MetaKeywords = TextBox1.Text;

                this.Page.MetaDescription = TextBox2.Text;

                TextBox1.Text = string.Empty;

                TextBox2.Text = string.Empty;

                Label5.Text = "Properties set successfully";

                Label5.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green;

            }

        }

    }

}


Step 4: The output of application looks like this:

Step 5: The data entering output of application looks like this:

Step 6: The displaying Meta properties output of application looks like this:
