     Open Text

opentext Keywords

Open Text does a standard keyword search for returning search results. The Open Text database contains your html and uses it for searches. If you have a title and a couple of words in your html document your page can be searched through Open Text. Keywords a user searches for in Open Text will show up if they match text on your web site or meta tags.


When adding your URL to Open Text you are asked to give the location of your web site and your e-mail address. A spider is then sent by Open Text to visit your site to copy your html to the Open Text database. Open Text says it has robots roving the web.

Meta Tag

Open Text does not treat meta tags differently from normal text. This is indexed and used for searches. The description displayed when your site is searched is a short description of what Open Text considers your page is about.


There are several ways you can optimize your Web Site for Open Text searches:

  • Ensure your web page contains the keywords you want directly in the html
  • Use meta tags
  • Give you name an appropriate name page


  • standard keyword searches
  • uses robots to call at your site
  • uses meta tags or text from your html for searches (including description tags)
  • can return a sentence or two about every site
