Change site name & description --Need help (6 posts)

    When you google my url, the site name shows up with info from the latest blog post. I want to change my site name so it doesn't mirror the url and add a description of the site. I don't want post info to show up, just the site description.

    I tried manually adding code in the header area and adding meta tags with the title, description and key words. This hasn't worked. Is there a plug in I could use? Is there a reason the manual way is not working? I followed the instructions I found in wordpress and other sites about adding meta tags to wordpress.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    You can change the site name in Admin/Settings/General. To use the site description as a site-wide meta description, you'll need to edit your header.php file and add:

    <meta name="description" content="<?php bloginfo('description'); ?>" />

    within the <head></head> section.

    Esmi,

    When you enter my url: http://steamebook.com into google the site name shows up correctly now. The description info doesn't show up, just categories from my home page. How do I change this? Please go step by step and tell me exactly where I put the info. I'm a novice and need to know exactly what to do. Thanks.
