No problem. I'm no SEO expert either, but I read a lot. LOL...I'm not an expert, but I have stayed in a Motel 8.
Why only one or two words in meta tags: Because if you add a lot it will make the website more spamy. One thing a novice Black Hat will do is load up
on the keywords. The new Google bot Panda is more temperamental over something that seems spamy. I have also read about some people not putting any
keywords in at all, but I personally do not agree with this. Put in one or two keywords in the header tag, and then a couple of keywords in your post,
and some more keywords in your image title and rel. That's how you get around adding a lot of keywords, and not seem spamy...spreading it out is the
White space being counted as characters: Sorry, that is my personal opinion. I count the white-space because in programming the white-space is counted
as part of the total length of the string. Even if you use a trim() function it only removes the beginning and trailing spaces, it doesn't touch
anything in between. When you send a tweet, white-space is counted, and it removes any formatting you may have also entered. The way I look at it, if
your description can be sent as a long tweet, it's the right size.
One more little thing I just read, don't use (...) in your description. I've read from a couple of SEO's that is not good for page rank. I don't have
much information on that, I'm just a messenger on that one. Hope this answered your questions.
