Title and Meta Data

At this point your first web page should be well on the way to looking the way you want it to. One thing that you will notice though is that the tab at the top of the page still shows the same meaningless value as the template did. The content of this tab is actually the title that will appear in the title bar of the browser when our visitors visit our web page and will also be used by search engines as the main link to our page. We need to get this changed to properly reflect what our page is actually about.

To update this field as well as supply some other information on what the page is about go to the Format menu and select Page Title and Properties.

The Page Properties

You can now change the page Title to whatever you want it to be as well as entering a longer Description which some search engines will use as the descriptive text.

Press the OK button to save your changes.

Your web page is now basically complete and so you can move on to creating the next web page by repeating the steps covered in these last couple of tutorials to create each of the pages for your site.

In the next few tutorials we will look at how to enhance your content by adding extra links that are not a part of the navigation, images, lists, as well as other more advanced elements that will only be needed for some of your pages.
