From what I've heard recently, the top slots go to the highest bidder.... $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Not very pleasant, but probably true.

Check http://www.projectcool.com/ in their HTML reference. They discuss metatags and search engines without a hype-and-jive sales pitch to try to sell you their subscription service (they don't offer one... just good information).

http://www.virtualpromote.com tells you a lot about how to get a high ranking in search engines.

Anyway when you want to have a lot people to your site there is a lot more to do then just have a high ranking at search engines.

Of course you could try to fool your visitors and place a lot of "sex" in you metatags. It works, believe me.

re: sybe's comment--do you want a lot of visitors at your site who are looking for something that your site doesn't offer??? I don't think that suggesting one will find "sex" at your site is going to result in the kind of traffic you want... (unless that IS the kind of traffic you want)

colleen,

I know that, it was meant as a joke, but I admit that it probably is not a good one.

Commented:
sybe, I do appreciate your sense of humor. But sometimes people take what we say here and actually do it. :-/

Besides, with so many sites that would be listed in the results (unfortunately), I don't think "sex" will get you to the top of the heap.

Had a friend who had a meta tag that read, "You won't find any pictures of ....... in this website." Of course, the words used to end that statement were indexed...

I was disappointed to read in zdnet.com about the mercinary attitude of search engine operators. Kinda makes you wonder who you can trust to do their job, doesn't it?
