Re: where tags?

Hi Duncan - Not sure if it matters exactly, but I would order the <HEAD> items like this:

2-Meta Description
3-Meta Keywords
4-Other Meta tags
5-Other Head items (JavaScript, etc.)

I know Microsoft FrontPage tends to shift the <TITLE> tags to the last position in the <HEAD>. I heard it was important for this code to appear first since most SEs rely heavily on the page title. I would think this is especially important if you have a lot of JavaScript code appearing before the <TITLE> tags. Again...take all of this with a grain of salt because I'm not 100% sure if any of it makes a difference.

Anyone know exactly if the order of <HEAD> items matters to SE placement?

Greg B
