Search engine optimisation is definitely the buzzword for 2013. By this time mist people that own a website will have heard of SEO. SEO is the skill of getting your website higher up the search engine rankings.

Each website has meta tags in the source code. The source code is the html coding used to build your website. If you have a content management system that you can update yourself, there's a good chance that you will have access to change this information...

As standard each website has a TITLE, DESCRIPTION and a KEYWORD (not really used now by Google) meta tag.

 

META TITLE
Your websites title is the most important meta field for SEO. Your title should be crystal clear exactly what you do and contain some buzz words that people might be searching for. Each title should ideally be no more than 70 characters long. From your title your customers and Google should know exactly what your business is and does.

 

META DESCRIPTION
Next on the SEO list is the meta description. Your website description should be no more than 156 characters in length and should contain exactly what your business does or products that you supply. Its always best to try make both the description and the title contain the same keywords for relevancy. The keywords used should also be used in your page content.

 

Below is a sample of how things would look in the search results. The blue header is your main title and the black text underneath is your description.
