Two tags in the <head> section of each HTML page:

<meta name="description" content="A brief and compelling description of this page that will attract and assure the visitor that you provide what is being sought when they see it in search engine results">

<meta name="keywords" content="A short list of comma-separated keywords and keyphrases, mostly ignored by major search engines">
