Speed dating has been a growing phenomenon for a while now and is becoming a major revenue stream for both traditional non web-based dating agencies and start-ups alike. The concept has proved to be both a popular and an exciting way to meet potential partners without the stress and intimacy of ‘the first date’. Events are organized at local level in which participants can sit with each potential partner for a predetermined time (usually several minutes). Contact details are subsequently released to those couples that both express an interest in each other. For a demo of our speed dating software, be sure to check out our Speed Dating Demo.

Meta tags are html code that is on every html page. When you go to a site and at the top of the browser you will see that site name. Well, that is the meta tag”Title”. That meta tag gives the site it’s name. Most sites have three important meta tags. They are Title, Description and Keyword. Each plays an important role in your site with regards to Search Engine Placement. In order for a site to have good placement, you must have a good title, keywords and description. You also need to have your keywords appear in your site. The more keyword rich text you have, the better the search engines like it. The personal dating software comes with the meta tags configured for your dating web site.
