    Hi,

    I am publishing my site at my own domain using iWeb and Transmit. I can't see what is in the index.html that seems to point to another file within a folder called Web_Site. My question is how can I put in Meta Keywords to help Google (and the like) find my site and rank its appropriateness to a search query. Also, will Google find all the pages within my Web_Site directory?

    I have the same question. I am new to this whole web development thing. I know that iWeb is a really basic website creator, but you think it would have this functionality, especially now that they have added Google Adsense widgets. I hope someone knows the answer.

    Take a look through this thread. The basic answer though is that you can't do it directly from iWeb. Also, in terms of the question posed by the OP (back in 2007) about if Google can index all pages of a iWeb site. Yes and no. Partly depends on how iWeb will put it together. If iWeb requires JavaScript for the navigation and links then, No, Google won't be able to index the site very well because googlebot doesn't process the JavaScript. This can be partly bypassed by creating a sitemap though, but that's extra work.
