I've been doing some tidying up on my site recently and have been making some minor adjustments to the section of each page (primarily to cut out any potential duplication). However, I just have a couple of niggling questions which I thought I'd ask you experts here for your advice on...
1) Does the order of the meta tags make a difference? 2) Does the mixed use of ' or " make a difference for SEO-purposes? - ie: below in my example the canonical line uses " and then ' for the actual href (if that makes sense?
<head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, minimum-scale=1.0" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="/styles.css" /> <title>Example Page Title</title> <link rel="canonical" href='http://www.example.com/examplepage/' /> <meta name="description" content="This is an example description"/> </head>
Also, I have the following above my head - is this even needed any more?:
<!--[if IE 8]><html class="no-js lt-ie9" lang="en" ><![endif]--> <!--[if gt IE 8]><!--> <html class="no-js" lang="en"> <!--<![endif]-->
