as short, succinct yet descriptive as possible. Alias's are picked up and indexed by search engines. The alias should be lower case and should not contain Caps,
numbers, spaces or special characters with the exception of the - (dash) symbol. As a rule of thumb, try to limit your alias's to no more than 4 words, and do not change them once they have been set. (**changing them within a few minutes or even the same day is generally not an issue, changing them once they have been established and indexed by search engines can create some search issues)
*Note: If there is already an alias in this field, be careful, changing it may break other links you have created using the previous alias. Think carefully about where you might have created links to a page before changing an existing alias.
a page Title for every page. It is better to have "Alexandra's Plaza
Suite Vacation Rentals, Room Rates and Prices" than it is to have
simply "rates" as the title. This is the opposite of the alias. The
Title is what is displayed at the top of the users browser window when
visiting a page. It should be as descriptive as possible. Search
engines may place some significant relevance on page titles.
using the Rates page as an example, you might have: sonoma, rental,
vacation, rate, room, price (in many instances, it is better to have
part of the word than it is to have all of the word...room vs rooms)
on the Home page might be completely different: vacation, sonoma,
valley, moon, room, bed, breakfast, activities, square, plaza
How are people who you want to find you...searching? Those are the words.
is the description you want to show up in the Google listing for the
page that someone found when they searched for you. They should be
different for every page in your site. The description is another key
place where you want to incorporate keywords. If you can sum up in two
sentences, your business, using every keyword someone might use to
search for you, it probably helps.
