Meta Tags – And Why Blogs Are Better Than Websites

I had a conversation with a client today and  she was very proud to tell me that she spent  $3000  on  some  SEO  work  which included  making  her  meta  tags  very  robust.  Yet, her website still comes up on page 26  for  her  keywords!

It is the belief of many, that Google  places  very little value, if any, on Meta  tags. Again, this is why blogs can give you more lift and better rankings. 

Google  looks  at the title,  the  anchor text of your links, the keywords used in your content, and proper use of tags in a blog.  All of these components, done properly and consistently, will raise you to the top of the search engines! GUARANTEED.

Quit wasting  money  on SEO  for your website.  Anyone can load up a website with a ton of meta tags. But Google is looking for relevance and consistency.

Despite the claims of some SEO companies and many people who have read a forum post about SEO so understand better than anyone how to SEO a website, the keywords meta tag is not used by Google as a part of its ranking algorithm… not even  a tiny bit! People have abused keyword meta tags, so now Google basically ignores them.

Google even blogged about its disinterest in the keywords meta tag here on its Webmaster Tools blog, together with a video showing little Google cares about the keywords meta tag. – There is a lot of valuable info actually in the Free  Google  Webmaster Tools,  under  Guidelines.
You should read it.
