The SEO Title is about 66 characters.  This should be what your page is about.  This will also show in the search results.  Take a look at Moz – SEO Title for a more detailed look.  Another great source on the topic is Yoast – WordPress SEO who created the plugin that creates the SEO Title and Meta Description

The Meta Description is about 155 characters and may show in the search results.  This should be enticing to the searcher.  I was explaining this too a client the other say and he referred to it as “the hook”.  For a detailed look at meta descriptions check out Moz – Meta Descriptions.

Step 10 – Change the author

Scroll to the bottom and change the author to the website owner.  Scroll up and choose “Save”.  This is applicable to websites that have more than the business owner adding content.  When we design your website we make it about the business owner and make them the author of all of the content on the site.  So employees out there editing the site,  make sure you change to author to the business owner.
