First off what is a SERP?
A SERP is the Search engine Results page…the page of results you see when you do a search in any of the search engines.
Now…where does the search engines get the description you see showing below your listing?
Most of the time the search engines will take it from your Meta Descriptions tag. Now, in a previous post we talked about how the Meta data are not as important as it used to be, but you still and should make sure it is there, since the search engines algorithms are always changing you want to make sure you have the bases covered.
Here are some other ways the search engines may get your web site description for your search listing:
Google – Mainly use the meta description tag but if you don’t have one, they will take a sentence from your web page that contain that particular keyword that the person is searching on. OR they may even use your description from the open Directory DMOZ.
Yahoo! – Will take some part of your meta description and part of a sentence on your web page that contain the keyword phrase. Again, if there is no meta description in place, it will go to the Yahoo Directory listing.
MSN/Live – Will use the meta description or the first sentence that contains the keyword phrase.
Things to remember:
Make sure your meta description has your keywords in there. Don’t try to stuff it with keywords though, the user will see this too so it is not just for the search engines to read.
If possible, make sure the first sentence of your web page has the keyword phrase in the content.
Check your DMOZ and Yahoo Directory descriptions and make sure it still pertain to your business, if not you can request to edit it.

Google is always looking for ways to improve their products and well they’ve done it once again.
Ever visited a site and wanted to talk to someone immediately without having to pick up the phone or fill out a contact form and wait for a reply?
Well, it’s now possible for your site visitors to talk to you.
Google Talk has a new feature. You can now chat with people you do not know with the new Google Talk Chatback Badge right on your web site and blogs. All you have to do is add a small amount of code to your web site or blog and you’re ready to go.

This allows your site visitors to contact you and talk (if you’re signed on and actually there) or they will see your away message and try to catch you at another time.
What’s great about it, is that it is private, not public like comments and it is a one on one conversation. Meaning if you’re chatting to two different visitors, they are on two different windows so visitor A do not know that you’re chatting with visitor B and they can’t see each other’s conversations.
You must have a Google Talk account to implement this on your web site, but your visitors do not. Sign up for a Free GTalk account now if you do not already have one.
