    Re: Meta Description

    @SAP, personally, I don't like when people ask such questions on forums. I'd rather read a question such: "should I add more than three keywords in meta description?" or "Is it worth to add call to action in meta description?". Let me google that for you

    Re: Meta Description

    Meta description tags, while not important to search engine rankings, are extremely important in gaining user click-through from SERPs. These short paragraphs are a webmaster’s opportunity to advertise content to searchers and to let them know exactly whether the given page contains the information they're looking for.

    The meta description should employ the keywords intelligently, but also create a compelling description that a searcher will want to click. Direct relevance to the page and uniqueness between each page’s meta description is key. The description should optimally be between 150-160 character.

    Re: Meta Description

    Google still reads the meta description and uses it in snippets if you are using certain operators – if you want the meta description to appear as the snippet, place your keyword in it (and that keyword needs to be on the page, too).
