You need to add the following between your <title></title> tags:

<meta name="description" content="Put your text here." />

Place what you need here: http://www.addme.com/meta.htm
it generates the tags for you automatically.

Just copy and paste after, easy huh?

Hi Nikhil,

take a quick look at http://trafficlicious.com/make-money...rd-case-study/

It's a keyword study I did some time ago. Pay particular attention to these sites' meta descriptions.

A meta description should represents a short and as much unique as possible description of every page in a website, as well as of the website itself. This is a very important and crucial part of any website’s optimization.

* Unique meta descriptions on each page of your site
* Show facts about the content on the page that are not represented in the title
* Make the description easy to read
* Dynamic sites can dynamically generate descriptive meta descriptions easily
* Make sure your descriptions are quality and represent the content on the page

Cool

In writing a meta description, its content should be a snippet of your site. Tell something about your site and be sure to use keywords that are relevant on your site...

This might help. In the description, I never use full sentences because that's just extra junk of propositions and adverbs that I don't need. I use phrases that are studded with important keywords.

Meta tag especially Description writing is an writing skill. You have to create a summary for your page containing the major keywords for this page. But you are restricted for your word count, it should be in between 150-200 characters.

Meta tags are information inserted into the "head" area of your web pages. Although

Meta Description tag <META NAME=“DESCRIPTION” CONTENT=“your text” />
This tag allows you to influence the description of your page in the crawlers that
support this tag.

You can use Meta keyword to

Meta KEYWORD tag <META NAME="KEYWORD" CONTENT"your keyword"/>
This allows you to provide additional text for crawler-based search engines to index
along with your body copy
