Meta Description Tags for SEO

Comments: 3

  • I would suggest that the title of the post is accurate! The purpose of SEO is to attract potential customers to your/client’s website.

    The description tag can contribute considerably to achieving that objective and if crafted appropriately can enhance the opportunity of conversion.

    Blogged back in 2010 after having carried out a little test. Although not used in Google’s search algorithm it is essential for effective SEO!

    And, can be even longer than 250 characters. Tested a description tag of approx. 550 chars., targeting 3 separate keyword groupings on a client home page. Searches for different keyword phrases resulted in appropriate description snippet being displayed.

    Google might fill it in if left out but far better getting your own preferred description. It’s more important than generally given credit for!

  • Hello Brent,

    It was nice reading the article, as I am in SEO, what I earlier days, Google used to give value to Meta, Title, Meta Description, Meta Keywords, but now the time has changed, there is not much value of these in SEO. Now it is only for presentation to show the clients what you are and what you are going to provide. It states that only.

    Kindly do write such articles for us.

    Thanks for that.
