SMBmeta, spam, and the old meta tags

I've added an essay to the TrellixTech.com web site that discusses spamming search engines. The purpose is to show how my SMBmeta proposal is different than the old "keywords" meta tag. It is in response to questions in the press and elsewhere. The discussion about different types of search engine spam may be of interest to some readers, too.

See SMBmeta and Spam.

Yet we still cling to spectrum allocation and the censorship inherent in the onerous regulatory system.
