Craft the right title and description tags: Local SEO

A great SEO strategy is only as good as the titles of your pages and their respective descriptions. A title tag tells users, and search engines, what the topic of your page is. In a search result, your title tag typically appears as the first line, acting as a headline of sorts. Words in the title are bolded if they appear in the query, and that's where understanding your keyword strategy becomes important.
