Change your website title and description

Note: The SharePoint Online Public Website information in this article applies only if your organization purchased Office 365 prior to March 9, 2015. Customers who currently use this feature will continue to have access to the feature for a minimum of two years after the changeover date of March 9, 2015. New customers who subscribed to Office 365 after the changeover date don't have access to this feature. Moving forward, Office 365 customers have access to industry-leading third-party offerings that enable them to have a public website that provides a complete online solution and presence. For more information about this change, see Information about changes to the SharePoint Online Public Website feature in Office 365.

One of the most important and yet simple changes you’ll make to your public website is changing the title. Your title is often the first thing your site visitors look at when they visit your website so it’s a good idea to choose one that describes your business or your mission. The website description is optional but does provide information about the site on search results. Watch the video below for a quick demo. The rest of this article appears below the video.
