    You will want to include meta tags in your <head> section, they should look something like this:

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
     <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
     <title>Widgets Inc. || All of your Widget Needs in One Easy to Find Location</title>
     <meta name="Keywords" content="Widgets, Web, 2.0" />
     <meta name="Description" content="All of your Widget Needs in One Easy to Find Location" />
     <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/style.css" media="all" />
    </head>
    Yes, you will want to put meta tags in every page that will be your website.

    Meta data is typically used to deliver information about your page/site. Search Engines use this information along with others to determine your rank in a site. You can read more about it here: Wikipedia.

    Meta data can send users to other pages using this line of code:
    Code:
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5;url=http://www.blah.com"/>
    Meta is a important tool for your website when it comes to Search engine Optimization. You will want meta on all of your pages.

    Actually, most search engines don't even look at the meta tags.

    That is what I would say is all you need for your pages.

    That other segment of code is a redirect/page refresh.

    The copyright notice is worth putting on all pages, unless you include it elsewhere (such as in the visible content of each page).
