    Is there a way to make a Theme place the meta keywords and meta description directly after the title tag in the head?  At the moment my page is displaying title, javascript / css, meta tags.

    I believe you would need to set this at the template (master page) level, not on the theme. place your meta tags below the title tag on the master page (in App_Master folder) and above the contentplaceholder "head" (assuming you have one)

    this is currently working for me, hope this was helpful to you!

    Hello,

    Yes, this is a solution - you can always put the keywords in the masterpage or in the template. Perhaps we should do the same thing when you set the keywords on the user interface. We will research if this is good for the SEO though.

    Devin, 
    Can you please elaborate on why the keywords should be right after the title tag?

    Hi Georgi,
    The SEO people where I work have requested this.  I'm assuming that it is good for SEO.

    Thanks,
    Devin

    I'm posting to this thread because if seems the topic has been discussed before but I have not found a proper resolution. The "SEO Experts" we have hired are saying that not having the meta tags directly below the title tag drastically effect optimization.

    Is there a resolution or possible workaround for this scenario?

    Hi Peter Snyder,

    You may place the keywords in the masterpage, or override the InternalPage class. There you will have access to the HTML, so you can switch the positions of the tags. There are examples about the internal page in these forums. 

    I still believe that this is not a factor at all - the keywords and descriptions are not considered, or have really minor impact on the SEO compared to the rest of stuff - back links, content relevance, xhtml and readibility by robots - so the position has even less impact.

    Sincerely yours,
    Georgi
