    I cannot figure out how to edit the meta tags and meta description. I need to change them and it says it will be in the first section of the code with <title> <title> and to change it there. I am unable to find that part at all. Please help. I am trying to improve my site and am new to all of this. Thank you!

    look into header.php of your theme,
    but probably most themes might not have these meta tags.

    the code would maybe look like:

    <title><?php wp_title(); ?></title>
    
    <meta name="description" content="description text. a few sentences. " />
    
    <meta name="keywords" content="keywords, more keywords, word" />

    however, these meta data would need to be different for each page and post, so maybe you best bet would be to use a seo plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=seo&sort=
