Hello Andrew,

There are 4 main elements to tailoring searches of your site ( and 1 decorative element). These are all available for editing from within the Site builder.

If you open your builder and click onto a blank area of a page you will then be able to select Properties from the Content Sidebar.



The Five elemts are :

Window Title.
Description.
Keywords.
Page heading

and
favorites Icon.

The Window Title: (is the most important SEO ranking element other than content). this labels the "tab" of your browser.

Description: (second most imporatnt in SEO rating)Allows a paragraph of description of your content. Nominally 120 words. Containing realistic, true and accurate words in an easily followed writing.

Keywords: (third most imortant in SEO rating)are, if you like, power search words or more popularly short phrases that you imagine that people would enter into their search engine to locate your site or a page of your site. This is not as much as what you would like to see them enter but be realistic and critical. These can always be modified later. There is some help in Google Webmasters on appropriate and powerful selection of keywords.

Page Heading: is the visible title of your page. It's physically embedded on your page. It has some power in your search rankings but not as great as the three headings addressed previously.

A favourite Icon: is an element that is attracting more notice by users. It doesn't really describe any aspect and isn't used for defining the content of your page. It may have some visible usefullness for people knowing that a page is on your site if they have many tabs of your site opened.

I hope this helps to work out some of these aspects, Andrew.

Hi Andrew,

I would give a different Page Heading to each page. It helps the visual navigation as well
