Does anyone believe Google is looking at meta tags? I thought maybe I need to rewrite my meta tags, including narrow down my meta keyword tag to just 3 to 5 keywords. A couple of my ALT tags are stuffed with a few keywords, but nothing that I would consider spamming. (My site dropped from page 1 to page 34 in the SERPS)
However, my competitors are still ranked on the first page of SERPS and their meta tags seem either the same or more stuffed with keywords!
But when I do a search for link:site.com then it seems the incoming links they have to their sites more than doubles mine- and not all of those links seem relevant to their sites. Maybe I need to work on getting more incoming links and not worry so much about the meta tags?
Also, how often should you update content on a page?
