    Hey guys,

    I have a spanish website in spanish and I notice that some of my competitors that rank really good have the following meta tags that I don't have:



    Can someone tell me what if Google really cares about them, or if should care about them, since I only got the basics one title, descripcion and keywods, and this are competitors that rank really good.

    Thanks

    <meta name="revisit" content="7 days" />
    <meta name="googlebot" content="index,follow,all" />
    <meta name="robots" content="index,follow,all" />

    these could help...

    the others i don't think will help with anything..

    Hey innozemec,

    What about this ones since my website is not on default Google's language (english)?

    <meta name="content-language" content="es" />
    <meta name="distribution" content="global" />
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

    Thanks bro!

    well, i think G recognizes what language is your site without the need to look at a meta definition... so i don't think a language definition would increase anything about ranking

    Google doesn't really pay much attention to meta tags anymore, I wouldn't get too wound up about them, focus on content and backlinks and Google will treat you fine. If you are doing all those meta tags you may as well do the Facebook opengraph (og) etc. All those meta tags wont particularly help with the serps though.
