Yea I know, the google spider doesn't check meta tags on the site for some reason, I have them on my site, instead it takes the text on certain sites. THats why you see so many sites nowdays with huge blocks of text at the end, thats for google. If you searched for Paul Bian or Paulbian, you would find the text on my site highlighted.

Through my substantial amounts of papers acquired through massive research, I have come to the conclusion that google does so in order to by pass idiots making a site about nerd fights and putting in the meta tags "child porn, britney spears naked, lesbian orgy donkey slut fights", and the similar like. In conclusion, it is evident that google.com does this for the betterment of "googling" (verb origin unknown), and for better results related to the topic one is searching for.

I meant that google may not look at meta tags anymore because of people putting things in meta tags not related to their site, but if they use text on the site, it will most likely concern their website topic.

or it chooses a random page and position because i have known of some child porn sites that put stuff at the top of the page that says different things then what the content is, so that people are lured to the site. so it may just choose a random or set position for each sitel.
