Are Meta Description Tags Important? Ask Werty...

Most of my friends use a meta description tag on their home page.

Not Werty though... When you go to Amsterdam with a friend, and some have called you a garden variety fag, it doesn't help your case to have a snippet like this.

Friends don't let friends do crazy things like go without using a meta description on their home page.

It's a lovely little site your friend Werty has, plenty of ideas for scraping keyword lists ;-)

hehe, this great stuff...

by the way I learned that it's very important to have a meta description before the first google indexing...

Adding a unique meta description (and also titel) to dynamic pages can prevent the existens of "supplemental" results at google.
