    MSN Using metatags?
    Has anyone noticed if MSN robot can't grab a good page description off your webpage it uses your metatag description?

    I have a site that I redid and kind of buried my content under a bunch of navigation. Before the "upgrade" I had simpler code making the content easier to get to and MSN used the content on the page. Now after my "upgrade" MSN is using my metatag description, But my navigation is easier for users.

    I'm torn as to switch back to the old template...then MSN will drop me for a few days to weeks (they usually do when ever I make any html code change) or keep it as is and beef up my metatag description?

    Thanks Donuts.

    That makes sense now. Its the index page its picking up with meta description for a broad term I optimized for. So it's a good thing since I'm on the first page ...if only it where The Big G.....or even Yahoo!
