Using Website Metadata

by Joshua Reynolds - August 28, 2013
How metadata fits in to your website.
JTech created a guide for editing your website’s metadata in the Control Center.

Metadata is a behind-the-scenes component of your website — more or less an executive brief that tells search engines about each page of your website.

Depending on the age of your website, you may or may not have access to your dynamic pages’ metadata in the Control Center. If you’d like to edit your metadata but it’s not appearing where you edit your site, please contact Tyler, our project manager.

Metadata is broken down into three categories:

1. Meta Title, the name of the page as it appears in search listings.

2. Meta Description, which appears as a summary of the page when the page appears in search results.

3. Meta Keywords, which serve to inform search engines about areas of relevant interest covered by this page of your site.

Our guide provides suggestions for writing useful, relevant metadata that will perform well in search results for Google, Bing, and other search providers.

JTech provides professional site optimization services, which includes metadata written for your website’s static content to improve natural search rankings. If you’d like to learn more about how we can help your business be found in search engines, contact us about internet marketing.
