What is the difference in Menu text and Hover text? I'm in the page builder: At Site Manager: Edit Menu: Menu text, and Hover text. What importance are these to SEO? As I add more content I'm also in the stage of figuring out descriptions and key words. I want to do this right the first time around for Each page. Or as close to right as I can get for now.

Hi Thrundar

The menu text is the text that displays for the link in your menu. The hover text is what shows up when you mouse over the link. By default these are the same. You might want to make the hover text more descriptive. So the menu text might be "Photos" and the hover text could be "Thrundar's holiday pics" for example.

This is simply a navigation issue. You would use hover text if you wanted to give visitors "extra" information about the link before they click on it. Similar to a tooltip when you mouse over an icon in software.

I hope this make sense. Let me know if I am missing anything.

Thank you Monique. I think that answers it. I thought that might be the case, but wanted to make sure before I get more in depth on each page. Dang, now my mouse is messing up! I just can't make progress today! lol
