Every year The Albany Herald runs a Readers' Choice contest in which their readers are able to elect the best businesses in the area. I was thrilled that this year they added the category of Web Design. (For me!? Oh, you shouldn't have.) This would be a nice recognition to receive, and I don't mind asking you to cast your vote for DanielTitus.com. The contest itself is pretty simple.
While rearranging apps on my iPhone, I became aware of a the sub-continuous ordering that had taken place. On each page I had arranged the top line of apps in descending order of importance and frequency. Going from left to right, I started with Gmail (accessed dozens of times a day) and worked my way down to the Clock (accessed only once a day). However, my middle rows are arranged in ascending order of frequency. For instance (left to right), I started with BodyRock.tv (that I have yet to access) and worked my way to Cozi (accessed about a dozen times a week).
This got me thinking about how important proper placement is for mobile website?
Ask any SEO expert, and you are likely to get the same response. Meta Descriptions are important to your website. However, it is the how and why that determine how much help they will actually be. On a basic level meta descriptions give an explanation of what your site, page or article is all about. On a slightly more complex level it gives search engines an opportunity to display that description to their searchers as opposed to pulling primary (or worse, random) content from your pages. Herein lies the strength and dangers of meta descriptions. They can range from very good to very bad to just plain ugly.
