>>If you search for "Spy Software" on Alta Vista, #2 is "Bonus Spy Software" which is a page on my site with NO keywords and No Description! This page must have been indexed automatically, because I have never submitted this page.

>The title seems to be the first thing Alta Vista looks at. I have been peeking at the HTML
of my competitors' sites. Disney has a resort called: "Caribbean Beach Resort". No meta tags! No description.
I assume they can hire the best, and they come up high on the list for Caribbean resort searches
searches even though the resort is not in the Caribbean.
By the way, Alta Vista is case sensitive. If you search for "SPY SOFTWARE" the results
will be quite different, as I found out to my sorrow.
