Search Engines -
Tips to get listed high
Text content is everything
       Use a relevant, descriptive title
       First sentence should summarize your page
        (many search engines use the first line as the
        page descriptor)
 Meta tags are essential on every page
       <title>Your Title Here</title>
       <meta name=“KeyWords” content=
        “apologetics,etc.”>
       <meta name=“Description” content=“Type a
        brief description of your page here”>
