In the last few years, search engines have significantly changed how we find information, research, shop for products and services, entertain ourselves, and connect with others. Behind almost every online destination – whether it’s a website, blog, social network, or app – is a search engine and they understand what your content is about and how to rank it.
What is SEO?
SEO – Search Engine Optimization a practice that assists to increase your website’s visibility in the search results of major search engines. In short, search engines take in digital content and index / organise this information into results pages.
Motto is to make organic searchers happy with the non-paid results they find in the search engine results pages
What attributes of the website contribute to this SEO?
Search engines look at site structure and design, visitor behaviour, and other external, off-site factors to determine how highly ranked your site should be in their SERPs.
To achieve that reach, we must understand 3 core components
- Identify the content type and the search engine users prefer.
- How search engines work to discover, index and serve content in search result pages.
- How to optimise your website to let search engines more about it and attract user attention.
The optimization is often about making small modifications to parts of your website. These are minor improvements; however, when combined they would create remarkable impacts both at site’s user experience and performance in organic search results.

Now let’s move on how to improve knowledge base SEO using proper meta description.
Why to use Meta Description Tags?
A webpage’s title may be a few words or a phrase, whereas a page’s meta description tag might be a sentence or two or even a short paragraph. These tags provide a summary of what the webpage is about, to prominent search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Yandex, Baidu and DuckDuckGo.
What are best practices of creating quality Meta Description tags?
Meta description gives the user an idea of the particular page content. Its like a pitch that convinces the user that the page is exactly what they’re looking for. There’s no limit on how long a meta description can be, but the snippet is truncated in search results that typically qualifies in the range of 155-160 characters. Some basics to follows while creating meta description tags are:
- Ensure all web pages at your site has a meta description.
- Create unique and quality descriptions for each page on your site
