Here is how you can edit the page title and meta description on each of your pages:
  1. Click Websites Manager in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.

  2. Click Page Settings in the top toolbar. This is where you can update your Page Title (Name) and Meta Description (Page Description).

    Page Name
    should contain relevant information about your business. A good reference would be to use your company name and a key phrase for your home page. An example would be:

    Homestead | Build, Make & Create Your Own Website

    Page Description
    is usually 1 or 2 sentences long and relevant to your business. It should include 2-3 keywords or phrases that you'd like to be found for. An example would be:

    Make a Free Website or Store! Create a Website in Minutes w/ our Award-Winning Web Design Software. Build Your Own Website; Find Customers Today.

The Page Title and Page Description can contain a lot of the same keywords search engines look for.

If showing up in search engines is a goal for your website, there are a variety of other methods you can try such as SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising. For more detailed information on SEO or PPC, click Add-on Services when you are logged into your account.

This did not help. It shows the changes as I edit, but the old meta tags show when searching for my site.

This is how to do it, but it won't change in search results until the search engine crawls your site again. Even then, this is a suggestion to them, not a mandate. They can choose to display anything they desire. If you are using Google Analytics, then you can use the fetch as Google button to get them to index the site again more quickly.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Links to website pasted elsewhere (FB) say "Blank.".

I sell horses and have a "for sale" link on my website. When I cut and paste the URL for my sale page, it comes up as "Blank" with no photo in the box. How can I fix that?

When you update the title, after you publish, it should start showing the correct title name. Every now and then, we see a page not want to cooperate, but this one looks like it is!
