As the adage goes, if it aint broke, don't fix it. There's two reasons to switch around your metatags.

1. If you're starting to lose ranking. Either your competitors have become better at promotion or the search engine's have changed their algorithms and the way you had it before doesn't meet the criteria that they've set now. You'll see this through weekly monitoring of yours and your competitor's position.

2. You realize that there are other terms which you realize you could have greater success at. If you've got a top 10 ranking but noone searches with that phrase, then what good is it? Or if you find a term that gets lots of searches but has very few competing websites, go for that one.

But if you're ranking well and drawing traffic, why buck the system?
