Page Description - Meta Description Tag & Snippets

posted 27 Jul 2012, 08:44 by Philip Ridout
Google Sites now offers Page Descriptions, so you can write a summary of the page's content and Google Sites uses this for meta tags on the page. This means when you share or +1 a page via Google+, Like a page via Facebook or when search engines index your site Google Sites will give your Page Description as the snippet text rather than the first piece of text on the page.
