I sometimes have the feeling that pages without a description meta tag (or a bad description) rank better.
1. I started a wordpress blog a while ago. It only has title tags, no description tags. It ranks like crazy for certain search terms.
2. I have some old web pages where the title tag and the description tag are exactly the same. I didn't worry too much about seo then and simply copied and pasted to save time.
For those pages Google ignores the description tag and replaces it by a snippet from the web page text. These pages rank very well too.
This makes me wondering whether or not it would be better to simply forget about the description tags and remove them from all pages.
Did anyone try this already?
