Hi Mogatu,

This is in the realm of Google. It would be from your meta description in your Sidebar properties. Second Item down "Description". Here you should put a description which is accurate and informative. This will also really help in the search and summary aspects of your Google tag line and order.

Keywords are not part of the tagline but also very important.

Have a look at the SEO Tutorials that Emmy has written. She's made it an easy read and very comprehensive.

Awesome, thanks - I was just reaching for the tutorial links, but as usual Peter beat me to it :)

Mogatu: Well done for getting your site indexed by Google. If you implement Emmy and Peter's suggestions, the next time your site gets crawled you will see your description under it on the results page!

Hello,
You can change what you put in the description field and then update your site again. The search engine will then use this as your description when it next spiders your site.

Hi Mogatu,

I'm sorry you are confused. Are you wondering about how to change what is displayed as the desccription in the search engine for each of your pages?

If you click on the Properties Tab on the Content Sidebar you will see this:



You can then put the text you wish to appear in the field labeled Description. Does this answer your question?

If you have made the change but Google has not yet spidered your site and found the change than the old description will still appear. The search engine will need to come to your site, see that it has changed, remove the old copy from its index and put in the new. Sometimes the search engine will just pull something from your page to display in the description area. This is what has happened if you had !!!!!! in the description area when Google last indexed your site and victoriusresistance.tk is showing. Just give it a few days, if you have put the new description in it will be there soon.
