I've not made the hooks leap yet, but one thing I imagine would help Google find my site tastier is distinct metatags for each design.  As I understand it, right now my cpshop uses the same set of metatags on every page, drawn from text entered in the control panel.  Can hooks be used to make these design-specific?  I know I need to start taking advantage of the hooks feature, and this could just be the thing that pushes me into action...

Actually, conventional SEO wisdom says Google doesn't use meta tags at all.  But, that said, you should be able to use hooks to make them section-specific, if not explicitly design-specific.

I believe that's what's called a Pyrrhic victory.    But thanks for handing me a clue or two!

This is true. However, some search engines (eg: Yahoo) use the meta description tag in calculating rankings.  

More importantly most, including Google, will display the meta description tag in search results, particularly, as is the case with both Google and Yahoo, if the meta description contains the keywords being searched for.

See http://www.highrankings.com/metadescription.htm
