Hello

with regards to the noindex meta tag, does it have to appear alongside the description and title and keyword tags, or can it be positioned anywhere within the file, such as in the middle of the body area?

Thanks

My usual order for stuff in the <head> is:

- meta content encoding
- meta content language
- title element
- meta description
- base tag
- links to CSS files
- links to JS files
- link to favicon

links to JS files

i only do this when functionally required - otherwise the js <link> tags and <script> tags go just ahead of the </body> tag.
