Joe Sanders's COM354 Final Exam
Fall 2007


Answer 6

The Description Metatag is very important when designing a website. Along with Keyword Metatag, which give search engines specific keywords to help prioritize your site on their list, the description metatag gives a brief summary of your website to potential users. In about 30 words, you need to explain the core purpose of your website in an attempt to convince users to click on your link, provided by the search engine, and explore your site. Without a description metatag, the search engine will simply display the first few lines of text that appear in your website, and there is an excellent chance that that description will not do your site justice. So, people will pass your site by.
