Hi Danielle
This is a screen shot from a meta tag analyser I use



as you can see its quite poor, your title, description and keywords have to be relevant to your page content and as you don't have any content that's going to be difficult. I would consider a re-work of your home page to include some text and then add your meta tags based around that text.

Hi Danielle

Although we'd love to, we do not have the resources to assess website ourselves.

We have partnered with WPromote who have their own dedicated and knowledgeable team who will be able to assess your site! You can visit the WPromote Support Page to post any question or request assistance.

There might be a bit of confusion can i delete the index page and make this page my home page which it actually is,

Hi Danielle

Yes, there is a way in which to change the index page to a different page. We have a tutorial with the steps here: How can I change my index page to a different homepage?

Hope that is helpful.

You now seem to have 2 home pages, the first with the auto direct from your site address and the second when you click on home. The index page has to be your home page and is the page google etc will direct your traffic to. I think you may have removed the index page from your navigation, replace it and remove the current home page, you can delete it later when things are sorted.

Which like button are you after? Yola now includes in the site builder a facebook, twitter or google+1 button in the sidebar under social, just drag one over to where you would like it and edit to suit
If you want a share this button go here

http://sharethis.com/

and go through the options, then copy and paste the code into an html widget on your site

I will check out your seo later but your page already looks much better

Hi Danielle
Here is another screen shot for your meta tags



as you can see its much better than the previous one although you should be aiming for 90%+. Your meta tags are still not quite relevant to your new page content and you're using to many keywords

When you consider your keywords think of words or phrases you would input into search engines if you were a potential customer to find products you have on your website, you have as a phrase 'reduced intake of salt per sprinkle', I don't think this is one of the phrases that your customers will type in to hopefully find you.

A good tip for the description is to use no more than 150 characters including spaces, the reason is google will truncate anything over this so you could spend an hour writing a really good description only for google to ruin it

Lastly when you achieve a position you're happy with in google you need to work hard to keep there, check out google adwords to keep up to date with the latest keywords and try to introduce fresh content on your home page on a regular basis.

I hope this has helped here is a link to the meta tag analyser I use so you can check your progress, post back if you need any more help or clarification.
