I have just started looking at SEO for the Vim Tips wiki (Vim is a text editor).
Our pages start with a single line generated by a template. Problem: A Google search shows that line as an extract from the page in search results, and it's unfortunately meaningless.
Is there any way I can tell Google to skip that line?

There are some reasons why I would like to keep that line at the top of the page (not the bottom).
BTW I will implement what I understand from Forum:Primer in search engine optimization.

- Hmmm. I've just realised that the above is probably due to MediaWikia putting the first line of the article into the hmtl at "...":
- <meta name="description" content="..." />
- So I probably need to contact Wikia to find out if the "description" can be influenced. JohnBeckett 08:02, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
- MediaWiki:Description is for the description in the main page.
- About that, it's strange, because MediaWiki puts in the description the first paragraph, but excluding templates, and in your article it's taking the template for the description. Or maybe it excludes tables instead of templates, and converting the template into a table would solve the problem... --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) -WikiDex 14:39, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
