    • Creating new web pages in LiveWhale requires the existence of templates to use as the basis for new page. Under “Choose a template”, select the template you wish to use for your new page.
    • SEO Tip: Set the description and keywords for the page. While these are “optional” fields, think of them as “Required”. These fields help search engines like Google classify and locate your page. 
      • Description: This field is displayed on the Google search results page, and should be a brief, accurate, and enticing  description of the content that visitors will find on this page. 
      • Keywords: This field should contain specific search terms that you want this page to be found by. For example, here at purchase we have an “Office of Community Engagement” - and that office runs our dormitories. However, the general public isn’t going to know what we call that office - and it would never occur to them that we would call it that name. They just think “I want to live there while I’m going to school there” -  and they will use search terms like “Housing” or Dormitory” - which is what you want to put into “Keywords.” Think Wide Open.
  5. Click “Create this page”. The new page will be added to your navigation automatically.
