    You will only be able to use Meta tags if you are forwarding from your registar, or if your registar allows forwarding with meta tags (123-Reg Does). Namedrive don't allow you to modify the Meta tags on the parked page.

    This only really helps if you have a lot of link based traffic from search engines.....this type of traffic tends to die over time in any case. You will slowly loose whatever pagerank you had...I think this is due to the lack of SE friendly content on a parking page.

    Google doesn't like parking pages, so it takes away page ranks because of this.

    I have found meta tags of little use when using parking pages, or redirects. Personally it's a waste of time using them for domains. Websites, well thats a different matter.

    Yes, I agree with this...if you are only going to park domains...I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Looks to me like you already have:

    Code:
    <meta name="keywords" content="world travel, hotel, airfare, cruise, resort, business travel, cheap hotels, cheap airfare"/>

    You have...

    <meta name="Description" CONTENT="Fun Online Auction for buying, selling and advertising.">
    <meta name="keywords" content="auctions, auction, computer, bid, bidding, sale, books, coins, stamps, trading cards, memorabilia, sporting goods, music, dolls, comics, antiques, jewelry, advertising, banner rotation">
    <meta name="Classification" content="auctions, auction, computer, bid, bidding, sale, books, coins, stamps, trading cards, memorabilia, sporting goods, music, dolls, comics, antiques, jewelry, advertising, banner rotation">

    Is that what you wanted or do you want to change this?

    Normally you would just change the page in an editor like notepad etc. But as your using an auction script you need to change it either within the admin section or the script templates.

    You edit the meta tag in the html.
    use notepad to do this if you don't have a program such as dreamweaver or frontpage.
