With the internet growing at breakneck speed every day, it's more important than ever to ensure that your content is optimized so that your website is easy to find against your competitors.
In this lesson, we will look at how you can update the metadata such as title and description for your Vev project.
Open the page settings
Located on the top left corner of the editor, click the cog editor of the desired page you would like to update the meta-information.
Edit the page title
Within the 'Page Title' field, you can update the meta title of your page. This is how your page title will pull through into search engines such as Google and Bing as well as how it will be displayed at the top of your web browser. Here it is important to think about usability as well as you are targeting the right keywords based on your SEO goals.
Tip: We recommend keeping your page title around the 60-character mark.
Edit the page description
Here you can give a brief description of your page. Once again this will pull through to search engines, however, please be aware that in some cases search engines may serve an excerpt from the page itself if it is relevant to the user's search. We recommend 120–158 characters, up to 920 pixels. Make sure to include keywords relevant to your SEO strategy.
