How important is your meta description?
Apparently, Google looks for the text in the / of the page first and displays an extract with the search words highlighted. If it doesn't find something that it is happy with, it chooses the meta description. If it can't find the page at all, then it chooses a description from a directory such as DMOZ.

So there we have it, the meta description is really not that important for Google (it is for others, though)

Welcome to our final newsletter for 2007 - we reckon that by the end of December, everyone needs a break!

  • Minimalism web design for Acme Creative
  • Acme Creative are an Edinburgh design company with a client portfolio that is, as they say, 'to die for'.

    Their experience of blue chip companies includes the Royal Bank of Scotland, Shell, Scottish and Newcastle, to name a few. They are particularly active in the hospitality market, producing design work for hotels, resorts and restaurants.

    When it came to a web site, they wanted something simple, yet eyecatching, with all the key information close to hand. And they wanted to be able to update it easily themselves. Our development uses Javascript, DHTML and Ajax technologies to show the information - all on one page!!

  • Tread carefully with Web 2.0
  • We keep hearing about Web 2.0 and how it is going to make life on the Web much easier/better/quicker for everyone.

    That may well be true, but we've been doing a bit of development that falls into the Web 2.0 bucket and have discovered a few practical traps for young players.

    The key thing is that you have to choose the technology to use carefully having considered whether the users will understand what is going on and whether there is a need to ensure that search engines are properly looked after.
