7.5 Adding Keywords to a Page

When a user performs a search on the portal, each object's attribute values are compared to the search criteria. The Keywords attribute can assist with improving your users' portal experience by increasing the likelihood of meaningful search results.

Add keywords to Standard, URL, and PL/SQL pages, or custom pages that are based on these page types.

To add keywords to a page:

  1. Log in to Oracle Portal.

  2. Click the Build tab to bring it forward.

  3. From the Page Groups portlet Work In drop-down list, select the page group that owns the relevant page.

    By default, the Page Groups portlet is located on the Build tab of the Portal Builder page.

  4. Under the Pages heading in the Layout & Appearance section, click the link to the relevant page.

    This opens the page in Edit mode.

  5. Click the Page: Properties link in the toolbar at the top of the page.

  6. On the resulting page, click the Optional tab to bring it forward and go to the Optional Page Properties section.

  7. In the Keywords field, enter the keywords that best describe this page.

    Separate keywords with a space.

  8. Click OK to save your changes and return to the page.

Add keywords to an item by editing the item's attributes. For information on editing an item's attributes, see Section 14.4, "Editing Items". Add keywords to a portlet by editing the portlet instance, that is, a portlet that is placed on a particular page. For information about editing a portlet instance, see Section 15.3.3, "Editing a Portlet Instance".
