i was running a 3 way switch and googled a diagram and came across this one.

Im not sure if it's correct. I thought the traveler wires had to be in the same place on both 3 way switches. these seems to be switched... meaning the red wire should be swapped with the white wire on one of these switches. can someone shed some light on this please.

It makes no difference. The only wire that is important is the COMMON wire.
