HAVE A RESPONSIVE TEMPLATE? If so, please instead consult the 
Responsive Template section for support. 


The About Page is a blank page designed to serve as a home for your biography, mission statement, or other general description. To access these About Page settings, go to your navigation bar and click Website > Archive Page Settings > About Page

Page Options

We use a Rich Editor for this page, which allows you to easily add plain text, HTML, images, etc. to the content of your About Page.

The possibilities here are essentially endless, as there are so many different designs and configurations with which you can tinker to style your page as desired. Would you like to include a photo of yourself? We suggest using a third party such as imgur to get an image URL. Maybe just some plain text to let your clients know what you're all about?

Page Title

Common SEO intelligence indicates that properly keyworded page titles are one of the most heavily weighted components in determining a site's search-engine placement. Carefully choosing keywords for this page can be a huge SEO win.

The title of a page is also how the page will be named in your visitors' browser bookmarks, site history, etc., so it's important to make sure the title accurately represents the page's content. 

Meta Description

In visiting a page, search-engine crawlers routinely check for a brief, high-level description of a page in its "meta" element. For some pages, we dynamically generate this behind-the-scenes description for you, but for your About page, you can define exactly what you want it to say (up to 200 characters).

Furthermore, this is the preview description that appears in Google and other search-engine results, so it could be a visitor's first experience with your site - don't leave this to chance!
