3. You can edit the Page title and Description.

  • Page title: Currently, whatever you've entered as the Title for your Page is what is used for the Page title Meta Tag. You can edit the Meta Tag for this, especially if your page title is very long.
    • Delete the text, "[node:title]", and add your own title.
    • Keep your Page title to 65 characters or less (including spaces) since search engines will generally shorten titles longer than this in search results.
  • Description: Currently, there is no summary or description on Pages, so the Description Meta Tag will be empty. The Description can be used by search engines to display in search results.
    • Delete the text, "[node:summary]", and add your own description.
    • Keep your Description to 160 characters or less (including spaces) since search engines will generally shorten descriptions longer than this in search results.
