We just changed our website to a different host/shopping cart and I am working on attempting to get our rankings higher in the search engines, (like everyone else).
My question is, why do some sites not seem to have any meta tags or descriptions, and yet are consistently at the very top of the search? Others, which don't really have a lot to do with the search terms, are also consistently on the first few pages, and yet many of them have few meta tags. Some have a ton, others have none, some are somewhere in the middle.
One other quick question, do we use commas in the keywords or do we not? That seems to change also, although most have commas.
I am totally baffled by this and do not know how to work with this subject. If you can point me to an older posting or something where I can read concrete information I would be very appreciative!
