How Should I Write My Page Description?
The description metatag summarizes page content and may encourage clicks in search results. Some search engines use the description to help categorize pages, but more importantly, the page description may also appear in search results. A clear and persuasive description may not boost your search engine ranking, but it may encourage prospective customers to visit your site.
It’s important that your description metatag is readable and interesting, no longer than 256 characters, and also features one or two keywords that appear on the page, preferably placed near the beginning of the description.
If you’re struggling to think of a description, try using the first sentence or two from your page. iSEO automatically does this for you.
How Should I Write My Keywords?
Choosing the right keywords is the first step to a better search engine ranking. Here’s how to do it:
What Should I Enter in My Title Metatag?
Your title metatag should be concise, descriptive and unique to each page. Do not include more than ten words and make sure that they accurately reflect the page's content.

Why Should I Replace Joomla Classes with HTML Headings?
Google (and other search engines) rely on page headings to determine what’s important on the page. If your article title has an obscure class such as “contentheading,” then Google won’t consider it important. Replace this class or add a heading tag to it, such as H1, and Google will make sense of your page and rank you higher.
Are Metatags Important? I’ve Heard SEO Experts Say They’re Not That Significant Anymore.
Keywords and descriptions metatags are not as important as they used to be for some search engines. But the title metatag is still considered by experts to be the most important element for SEO and description metatags are used to create the snippet that appears on the search engine search results. Even if it doesn’t affect your search engine results, it will certainly affect your click-through rate.

Why Do I Need iSEO? Doesn’t Joomla Already Handle SEO?
Joomla's SEO capabilities are limited and slow. For example, Joomla doesn’t allow publishers to assign a title metatag to an article. Instead, article titles are used automatically as the title metatag even though the title of the article rarely contains keywords.
iSEO allows you to assign a title metatag for each article so you can optimize keywords and phrases.
What Is the nofollow Tag?
nofollow is a non-standard HTML attribute value used to instruct search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target's ranking in the search engine's index. Using nofollow tag will prevent your site from bleeding Google PageRank.
