Good idea Ivor.
4. Working the
Metatags even further. At the moment the contents of
our (as in the OGMK) description tags is pretty sparse, and wholly
dependent on the contents of the "Description of this node" field.
Pumping the first 150 chars of the article content into the
description metatag after whatever the "description of this node"
field contains, would give search engines more to go on.
This is what the page summary is for, no?
Indeed. However loads of ours are blank, or too short to make really
good description metatag content. Something like: If the page summary
is less than X chars long, then making it up to 150 chars using page
content and with a ... at the end to signify truncation" would be a
bonus I'm sure.
