    So i know im gonna get flamed for this but its really beggining to annoy me! lol

    I changed my meta tags weeks ago and they've not even changed yet, usually they would of changed by now and if they had'nt i would of pinged the site which would usually sort it out.

    Does anyone have any different methods for updating there there meta tags?

    Thanks!

    So you have changed your files on hosting and now You are waiting for Big Google indexing right?

    There are few options to boost indexing:
    1. Try to get more and more BL (from forums, blogs, comments)
    2. Use ping tools, to ping your site
    3. Make request in Google account for "re-review" site.

    I wouldn't worry about Meta Tags. Google I believe ignore them although some of the other search engines use them.

    Meta Tags are one of the least important part from an SEO point of view. More important are Title, Description and URL.

    You might want to change the subject line to 'most annoying subject line in the world'. I really wish people would post in the subject line... the subject of the post! Just take a few seconds to think about how to help every other person on the forum, reading it. I get one line. Tell me what this is in that line. To be fair, this rant obviously isn't about you, it's about... every unhelpful subject line. It's almost as bad as replies that have nothing to do with the thread... ;-)

    Thanks for the help everyone, i've waited over a month and the meta tags still have not changed. Gonna try and contact them on there forum. Also regarding the meta description, its just its got a post as the description and its looks un-welcoming so i need to change it.
