Configuring Title Tags & Meta Descriptions On Podia
Title Tags & Meta Descriptions are usually shown each time a page appears in search engine results. It helps search engines understand the content of a page.
Here’s how to edit Title Tags & Meta Descriptions on different Podia pages:
Go to the Site editor and search for Site Settings in the page dropdown menu:
Fill up the information with your Title, Search description and Preview image.
For other pages, access the page dropdown menu and click on the gear icon to the right of each page. You'll see a field to add any and all meta descriptions:
How long does SEO take to work?
There's no way to predict how long a site would take to rank in search engines or assume a specific position.
Usually, you can expect to see results in 4-12 months but this can vary based on the keywords you are targeting, how competitive they are, how optimize your site and pages are and how many internal/external links you have on your page.
Regardless of how long a site has been live or active on any platform does not indicate how high it will appear in search results, how much organic traffic it will receive, or anything of that nature.
SEO requires tweaking and adjusting to see these types of results over time. SEO is a science and many of the top results have a team of SEO experts constantly tweaking and working on their sites.
And this is it! Your Podia site and pages are now SEO-optimized and this will help you rank higher on search engines!
