"Description" info

Recommended Posts

My site is finally about functional and I am attempting to get ranked with the search engines. I had a site go over my pages and it came back saying that I had nothing for site "description." This may sound rather stupid, but where do I enter the info for site "description?" Where are the search engines looking for it?

 

Thank you for any help.

Its easy to install.

I've installed the Ultimate SEO contributions, but would be interested in this question - I'd like to change the titles of pages and add descriptions too, but I don't see where I can do it. My SEO program also says I have no title tags or descriptions.

I am not sure if this is correct but this is an example of one of my pages:

<title>Centos - $3.99</title>

<meta name="description" content="Shiplinux discount Distro's Centos CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by a prominent .." />

<meta name="keywords" content="Linux, Bsd, Other, Live Linux, Centos, Shiplinux discount Distro's" />

You have a title, description and keywords.

Now, did you actually add the "title," "description" and "keywords?" Or, did the contributions somehow lay that out. Sorry, this is just confusing me.

This is all you add it puts the information there for you:

<?php require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'meta_tags.php'); ?>

<title><?php echo META_TAG_TITLE; ?></title>
