Getting more from your content

Meta Data increases the value of your content

Looking to make your web content easier to find in search engines? Would you like to help visitors to your site find the right information by suggesting related content?

There are more advantages to good meta data than you would think:

  • It makes it easy for search engines find your content. This applies to both your own search engine and sites such as Google, Bing and Yahoo.
  • Suggest related content could help your users find the information they are looking for.
  • Organise your content in different ways.
  • Use web 2.0 tools such as tag clouds to help users navigate around your site.

Powerful Meta Data Management Features

TERMINALFOUR Site Manager delivers best practice metadata standards. TERMINALFOUR Site Manager is designed to deliver best practice metadata standards to comply with Dublin Core, eGMS and IPSMS. In simple terms, metadata can be applied in one or more of the following four ways:

  • Whole sites or sections of sites can be tagged by TERMINALFOUR Site Manager Administrators (at a directory level) or individual content items can also be tagged. 
  • Individual content items can be tagged by end-users.
  • Content Templates can be tagged, using keywords presented from a pre-defined drop down dictionary list or taxonomies. Such lists are created by Administrator users for use by content contributors. 
  • Structure your content based on a corporate taxonomy and then publish it based on a separate site structure.
  • A diverse range of Meta Tag fields can be applied to Content Templates.
  • It is even possible to set specific meta-data fields as "compulsory", so that the system refuses to accept content submission until the meta-data has been supplied or selected from the pre-determined list.

When using templates, it is possible to set specific meta-data fields as “compulsory” so that the system refuses to accept content submission until the meta-data has been supplied or selected from the pre-determined list. Meta tags can also be generated from Content Management information such as the date created / modified.
