    Good (and recently updated) article for help in setting up Titles and Descriptions for your sites.

    http://support.google.com/webmasters...n&answer=35624

    Not mentioned in here, but similar thought for Title should go to your main heading. Your page should have only ONE <h1> heading tag, and that should concisely describe the content of THAT page.

    It can be a tricky fine line to get good titles and headers that accurately describe, while being both understandable to both humans and search engines, while not being too large.

    If you find yourself struggling to come up with one main description of the page, it may be time to break it out to sub pages. Done properly this can help your search rankings, as now instead of being a page about, say 3 topics and that one topic having to share weight with the other two, now you have a specific page to the one topic, giving it higher authority on the topic. (compared to being on a page with 2 other topics).

    Just some ideas I thought I would pass on as I was reading updates on Google's blog. (This forum and lawnsite came to mind while I was reading the other topic, that google is adjusting to possibly penalize sites with excessive ads at the top of the pages)

    This forum doesn't support HTML, but what you are saying is basic HTML (hyper text mark up language)
    Does google provide any blogs about Flash or JScript?

    I do not get your first statement.

    For the second, are you referring to actual whole blogs for Flash/JScript or do you mean do they have topics in their blog about them? First, I have no idea, probably not. For the second, you can go to the blog link above and do a search for FLASH or JAVASCRIPT.

    Sorry I didn't clarify, I was offering information to those wishing to learn more on how to make their websites better. I didn't realize the first post has to be a an actual question. :eek:
