rotmanz writes: Good news! Your new website is prim and prime for search engine optimization. Search engines work best with HTML, which is exactly the code your website uses, so you're already a few steps ahead of the game. This article is best implemented for small to medium sized websites.

Anything longer than that will be cut off with three dots. The descriptions will typically appear in search results, so take some time to write something marketing oriented, something that will draw visitors to your website and make them click on your link rather than the competitors.
