How would I be able to change the meta tag description and title of my website? What software will I have to use?

Mike,

If you're using Windows, the easiest, fastest, and cheapest way to do just want you asked is with Notepad or Wordpad.

Great, I have Windows Notepad. How do I get it to connect with the meta tag description?

Dynamike,
You don't need any software, that's something your web guy can do. If you understand basic html you can change it yourself with notepad or wordpad, as Beano said.

Do a google or yahoo search on "how to change meta tags" or "how to change web page description" and you'll come up with lots of good stuff!

Best Wishes!

Mike,

When if your page (we'll assume it's named "index.html") is on your computer, just open it with Notepad. The first few lines will look like this (I don't know if it will display right here though):

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
<title>Dynamike Detroit Michigan Magician; Detroit, Michigan</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
.style1 {font-size: xx-small}
-->
</style>
<br>
<meta name="robots" content="all">
<meta name="description" content="DynaMike Magic Show Party Magic In Detroit Family Entertainment Strolling Magic Kid Parties Christmas Stage Performance">
<meta name="keywords" content="Dynamike, Detroit Michigan magician, Detroit magician, kid parties, children magic, magician in Detroit, Michigan magic, comedy magic, kid party, children party, children birthday parties, Christmas party magician, Christmas parties, family entertainment, entertainment in Michigan, Wayne county magician, Oakland County magician">

Now, just change the title and description and re-save it. Upload it and you're all set.

I would save a backup copy first for safety.

It displayed correctly. That is your actual landing page - part of it.

It is for the website http://www.detroitmagician.com
Presently the page looks like the following (I did not go all the way down):

for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document);
if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x;

Where shall I add in the following for the meta tag description?:

"Dynamike the Magician entertains in Metro Detroit for children, family, public and corporate events. The adults will enjoy his comedy magic as well as the children."

I am at the actual encoding page as it shows in my previous post. Can I just type in the preceding sentences, and delete the excising words without using Word Pad? It did work for easy title.

If you type in "Detroit Magician", the site I am working on is the second page of Google.

Presently it is reading the following after another change:

Umm...

you have multiple HEAD tags going on there and dual title tags..

fix that by deleting

</HEAD>
<head>
<title>Detroit Magician |Magicians in Detroit |Detroit Michigan Magicians |Dynamike</title>

and then scroll down to make sure you still have the

</head>

further down in the code..
but yeah that's how ya do it...

also you don't need the keyword tag.. search engines don't look at it
and don't put money phrases in it (you know the ones your realy ranking for to earn money"

My meta tags are generated by Submite Express instead of Wordpad. Is there any disadvantage with using Submite Express?

Which "...Book For Dummies" will teach how to change META tags?

I'm sorry I did not see your post earlier, we posted the same time.

I do put my ideas together of how I want it to look. But no, I do not put together my websites.

My web host has a box that says meta tag. I had to call tech support just to find out what the box was for, much less all of these codes, LOL.
