does it matter if where you place the main content of your site for google search engines?

HI I have built a site but used tables as could not get it looking right with css div tags.
There is a large menu in the first coloum which means the main content of the site is very low down the html code.

Is this bad for SEO? and do you have any suggestions to make it better? all meta fields filled in at the top.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

hi, It does not mean to google anymore. What is important is to make sure that you must have entered the METATAGS in the Head section of your page.It should be 1st or 2nd line after hte head section get started.This Metatags is important for the Google search (crawller engine) to crawl your page.It contrails the section like Title,Keywords & Description.

Hope this will solve your issue.
