    Then here's how to do what you want:

     

    1. publish your site to a folder on your hard drive. 
    2. launch SEO and click on the Open Website button at the top. 
    3. navigate to the website folder on your hard drive, select your website folder and use the Choose button.
    4. click on the html file for the first page.
    5. under Site Settings add the webside description to the Head Code section.
    6. click the Apply to Entire Site button.
    If you want to add a different description to each web page use the Meta Tags section.  You will have to to go each page and add the description.

       7.  when finished adding the meta data to the site upload the website folder/files with a 3rd party FTP client like  Cyberduck.

     

    SEO has a built in FTP client but by many reports it's not reliable as you'd like.  Cyberduck is highly regarded and lets you view both your local site files and the files on the server with Finder like windows.

    Sorry I just dont understand how all this increases traffic to my site.. unfort  I ahave no money to afford an SEO expert etc to do it andI already have metatags on each page. How will doing it again through this tool change anything? I am really stuck on this issue Ive seen every sugestion out there but the fact remains when you build all this in how do you get the word out about the site?

    Once you get the desctiptions entered into your website post your site's URL here in the Apple forum.  Google will quickly pick it up and start indexing your site.

     

    Read the Search Engine Optimization page that Roddy linked to in his post.  He explains about opening a Google account,  how to let Google know that your site exists, create a sitemap and more. Follow those instructions and you'll provide Google with the tools to find, index and rank your site.

    Ok I did what you advised in the last 2 posts(Roddy stuff) but when I did the "#5 site settings..." it put visible text along the top of my page so I pulled it and updated the Title and did the metatags through SEO tool.

    If you would rather use Wordpress, why are you spamming in this forum?
