Very good set of tutorials... thank you. I had an issue with my dropdown menu that I couldn't work out but that was only because things got messy the first run through... I went back, started from the start and kept everything clean and it worked exactly the same... happy happy.

Thanks Steven, this is very often the case, just a little mistake early on could cause a big problem later on. You should compare your files and see if you can find the exact problem! It might be an interesting challenge for you. Thanks for the feedback too.

Meta description tags, while not important to search engine rankings, are extremely important in gaining user click-through from search engine result pages (SERPs). These short paragraphs are a way to advertise content to searchers and let them know exactly what the given page has with regard to what they’re looking for.

Example of a meta description in Google search results

  1. Insert > Head > Description
  2. Type a paragraph describing your page. The paragraph shouldn’t be longer than about 150-180 characters long. It should also include your keywords.
