Why should you care? With over 3 billion web pages, the only way someone will find yours is if you (or someone else) tells them your URL, or they find it with a search engine.
Some search engines literally catalog every word of your site, but many just get the highlights by using your Title, Description and Keywords, so make sure these are well-written to attract the kind of people you want to find your site.
Don’t forget to register your site with major search engines [See Establishing Your Web Presence]
