It is not enough to have a list of keywords in your meta tags. These keywords must also appear inrepparttar title tag as well as inrepparttar 128368 text on your page. If you fail to do this, then your ranking withrepparttar 128369 search engines will be low, no matter how may keywords you have. It is most important that your keywords appear inrepparttar 128370 first paragraph on your page. They should also be inrepparttar 128371 title and headers. Some search engines also read 'alt tags'. Be sure to use relevant keywords there also.

Some ofrepparttar 128372 search engines don't like line breaks in meta tags. It is best to have your meta tags as one long line rather than having it wrap. I have been told that if your tags wrap,repparttar 128373 search engine only readsrepparttar 128374 first line.

You do not need a mile long string of keywords. The search engine will not read all of them. The standard is 1024 characters. The spaces between your keywords also count as a character. Don't use spaces. Use commas to separate your keywords. Select your keywords very carefully, and arrange them in order of importance.

There are no 'secrets' to search engine success. Meta tags are not a magic solution to getting listed. Using meta tags along with other methods, such as having a content rich site, will dramatically boost your ranking inrepparttar 128375 major search engines.
