Re: What happens if I change my meta tags after getting indexed?

Your meta tags and title will have no effect on the directories (ODP, Yahoo). It can have an effect on the crawler based search engines. When the crawler/spider makes it's way back to your site it will notice the difference. The spider will return after you re-submit your site or after it finds a link to your site.

I hope this answers your questions.



>I'm getting ready to submit my first web site to search engines and I thought I would like to make some last minute changes to my titles and meta tags. The problem is that I discovered my site can already be found through Yahoo and Hotbot. (I'm not sure about others.) And surprisingly, it comes up fairly high.
