Maybe its just me but is the Yola tutorial on adding title, description and keywords tags really bad?

I have never designed a website before but have spent the last three weeks putting one together, i am looking to publish it today/tomorrow and have decided to add all the keywords etc to my pages but the page manager says 'site' not page. So if my site is on hobbies and i have a page on reading a page on surfing and a page on trainspotting I would want different keywords etc for each page.

The tutorial is about a girl from texas that sells italian gold and gives an example for title, description and keywords for what i assume is her home page because it literally explains her site and not one page in particular.
What if she has a page selling italian made crystal ornaments?
would the title be ABC jewelery - crystal ornaments,
description be crystal ornaments at abc jewelery...
and keywords be crystal ornaments, italian crystal, italian ornaments, etc


would you need to keep the same description and keywords as the homepage and add to them? because the example explains the site and not a particular page?

Thank you very much

Hello Paul

You said "Page Manager", but I think you mean the Page Properties dialogue box?
You are right that the two explanatory sentences for Descritpion and Keywords can be a bit confusing because they both say "site".

But don't worry, you can certainly add individual keywords to each page of your website using the Page Properties dialogue box. The words you enter in the Description and Keywords fields will be assigned to the specific page that you have currently opened in your Sitebuilder.

To add keywords to a particular page, please open that page in your Sitebuilder, click on Page and select Page Properties from the menu bar in your Sitebuilder.

If you have any further questions on this topic, please let us know, and we'll be happy to assist you.
