Change your website title and description

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.
