    2 Meta Description tags on the same Home page


    I have never seen this before but I was looking at a site that had 2 Meta Description Tags that were Identical and each Tag had a Meta Keyword Tag following it. The Keyword tags were different. Can someone tell me why someone would do this and is it safe to do?

    Why cant he see that? Is it something so scary that you are repenting him. He is just asking out of curiosity and there's nothing wrong with that.

    Every one knows it is worthless but everyone is free to explore the unexplored territories..

    Yes I got but why they did it. We all know that what you write in your meta tag Google doesn't care about that.

    Of course, its Kreick . com So, we are all in agreeance that it is not smart to put in two sets of descriptions and keywords? WHy would someone do that in the first place then?

    My theory is the site was done in 2000. It has pretty good ranking for its main keyword which is a pretty competitive keyword phrase in Seattle. I'm guessing he hired an SEO in 2000 or so and fired them in 2003 or 04 and just left the site how it was.
