Using Page Title and Descriptions in WordPress Blog Post Tools.

Google and some other search engines decide on an individual website basis whether or not to display the page title and description you have provided.

They will often create and display their own rendition based on the textual content of the page. You can only influence the search engines, but you cannot force search engines to display your SEO page title nor the SEO description. Non-the-less you should not ignore the SEO title and SEO description. You should still fill in these fields, as search engines interpret that these posts are more thorough and of higher value as a result.

And while you are at it don’t forget to choose keyword appropriate ‘Categories” and ‘Tags’ and fill in the ‘Excerpt’ field for each post.

Using Google Fonts in Website Design

Website designers were traditionally limited to a small group of fonts that could be rendered in HTML for Internet viewing. The most commonly used included: Helvetica, Arial, Times, Times New Roman and Verdana.

Thanks to Google, designers and clients can now safely choose from over 800 open source (free) fonts for website designing. The Google font website is extremely easy and intuitive to use. The interface features include a directory of all fonts categorized by Serif, Sans Serif, Display, Handwriting and Monospace. Fonts can be sorted by which are currently Trending, Popular, Date Added and Alphabetical as well as in by language. Sorting can be further refined based on the number of Styles for a particular font family as well as Thickness, Slant and width. These multiple filters allow for quickly zeroing in on available fonts for specific usages.

PayPal’s New Security Requirement for Website E-Commerce

PayPal is one of the most popular payment gateways on the Internet and to meet the need for greater e-commerce security they now require that merchants install an SSL Certificate on their websites.
