When you create a classifieds website with Open Classifieds you can change your site name and site description very easily. both terms are pretty straight forward and self-explanatory. The site name carries the identity of your whole website and it is complimented by the description, which details your website’s purpose.

Whenever you’re editing these fields, be sure to:

  • Check that the site name is the correct title of your website – this will be publicly displayed online.
  • Check that your description matches your website’s content and purpose.
  • Take care and avoid typing errors, misleading/irrelevant input, plagiarism, etc.
  • Keep the length of the description field under the max (indicated by the tool tip – 160 characters).
  • Add a few keywords in the description – this could affect your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) analytics.

How to do it:

  1. Go to your website.
  2. Login to the Admin Panel.
  3. Select Settings -> General.
  4. Enter the site name into the input box labeled Site name.
  5. Enter the description into the input box labeled Site description.
