I realise title tags carry a lot of weight - but to the exclusion
of all others?? There are plenty of sites with this in the title,
but get a lower ranking e.g. places #7

has the title: La Manga Club (I)
i.e. fewer words/characters than the #1 ranking. It also has no meta
tags but does contain plain text with the phrase "La Manga Club". I just
can not work out why it places lower?? Do you think money is changing
