The importance of keywords and the meta description for your restaurant’s website
To optimize the positioning of your restaurant’s website on Google and other search engines, it’s essential that you carefully complete the SEO tab in your back office. In fact, SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is the key to your site’s natural referencing.
In this tab dedicated to SEO, you can enter various information used by Google to reference your site:
- in “Site title”, enter the name of your restaurant;
- in “META description”, describe your activity and location in a few words;
- in “META keywords”, enter the keywords that appear on your online ordering site or its homepage, by selecting the words you consider to be most strategic (put yourself in the visitor’s shoes and imagine which words they would use in their search).
Your online ordering site’s back office: a wealth of information for Google
Your online ordering site’s back office contains other items useful for your site’s SEO optimization. For instance, the tab dedicated to your static pages, whose content will be closely scrutinized by Google which, like the other search engines, will dig for the keywords that ultimately determine your restaurant’s presence and ranking in the search results.
In the “Homepage” tab, you can complete your website’s “About” section. These elements (your restaurant’s contact details, history, values, etc.) will also be taken into account by the search engines. In fact, a well-designed “About” page helps to strengthen your brand image, while improving your customers’ experience.
Finally, go to the “Add-ons” tab in the back office where you can add the various social media platforms on which you are present (Facebook, Instagram, etc.). These platforms all provide vehicles for you – and your customers – to spread the word about your restaurant!
