A potential link exchange partner contacted me today to say he'd like to exchange links but my Meta-tags aren't right. He did not see them in the page source code in the following order: Title, Description, Keywords. In my page code the order is Title, Meta http-equiv="Content type"; Meta name="generator" and then a whole bunch of link codes. Meta-tags for description and keywords come in about 40 lines of code down the page. This fellow says that's not right and it will prevent me from ever being popular on the internet because search engines won't read it there.
OK, I used All-in-one SEO before and shifted to Add-Meta-Tags just today and they both put the code in the same spot. I would think that a decent search engine could find it there, and I read the info at http://codex.wordpress.org/Meta_Tags_in_WordPress that says Google doesn't use that system any more, and I recall reading such things a long time ago. Should I even be concerned with meta tag location in the page source? I'm willing to bet there's some other reason I'm not rich and famous.
