Change site SEO settings.

For some strange reason I deactivated my account(had so many Google Mail accounts and this one was connected to it. I forgot that my youtube channel was on this). I'm trying to retrieve this video, but for now I can explain in words how to get to the SEO settings.

1. Go to your AdminCP.

2. Settings >> Manage Settings

3. Then click on the link "General".

Once in the General settings, you can change the:

Site Name which will appear on your site pages and in emails.

Site Title which will appear on your site pages the browser tab and for SEO purposes it is a good idea to pick something relevant to your niche.

Copyright you can change this each year or you can add code to make it automagically change .

Site Title Delimiter for SEO purposes and also to help keep spammers from finding your site, you can change this from the default » to something such as | .

Meta Keywords you will want to make relevant keywords for your site. There are many tools online to help find good keywords.
