Q and A: Does it matter if your META Keywords tag is above the META Description tag in the code?

QuestionDear Kalena…

Does it matter if you have meta tags keywords higher on the page than the meta tag description?


Dear Mark

No, it doesn’t really matter if your META Keywords tag is above your META Description tag in your HTML code. But you should make sure that the title and META tags are as close to the top of your header as possible so they are one of the first things indexed by search engines. You should also keep in mind that search engines only index a certain amount of code per page before moving on, so your HTML should be free of code-bloat and should validate to W3 standards if possible.

Spread the joy!
