    I am worried about SEO.

    I used this tool and saw that my pages doesn't have a description:


    My site is http://www.eyerix.net/pt/w

    The only problem of this is SEO.

    What should I do?

    Clicking on your site's link redirects me to a site built using flash. I'm sorry to tell you this, but if you are worried about SEO you should not be making your entire site in flash since SE spiders can only read plain text and image alt tags not flash.

    So a missing description is the least of your worries. BTW a description tag won't make your site rank any better in the SE. It will however invite more users to click on your site's link on a results page if it is written well enough. The description is the text you read under each site's title in the search results page. So to add a description for your site just open up header.php in the theme editor and add the following meta tag somewhere between the <head></head> tags:

    <meta name="description" content="THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL TYPE YOUR DESCRIPTION" />

    Transpersonal, do you know how long it takes for the search engines to add the description to the search page? My site is http://jasminewanders.com. I have the All in one SEO plugin and I added a description in the designated area, but I also added it where you said in the theme editor.
