Is the order of meta tags relevant.

    This is something that I recently discovered in my CMS template, but the Title tag is the last meta tag. It appears after Description and Keyword tags. This is different from most set ups I've seen - where Title comes first, then Description than Keywords. Do you think the order in which the tags come in really makes a difference?

    No, order doesn't matter....

    PS: meta tags don't effect rankings btw.

    that's what i figured. I know everyone says that meta tags don't matter however i have a hard time believing that if you have a site targetting "blue widgets" and your title tag says "smelly monkeys" it will not make a difference. I know keyword tags are useless, but I still think there must be some value to the correct title.

    For myself I just use Meta tags to organize and keep track of the main keywords im targetting.
