Description

I created this branch that has information about gettor for users who can't open our website. This should show up at the search eng page for when people search for Tor and it shows our site and a description about tor.

Text added:

   <meta name="description" content="Tor is a free software that prevents people from learning your location or browsing habits by letting you communicate anonymously on the Internet. It also helps you bypass censorship online. If you can't open the website, email gettor@torproject.org for instruction on how to get the Tor Browser.">

Which is the same text that shows up now (see screenshot attached), I didn't change the first phrase, just added the second one. Although, it would be nice to review this phrase once we have a copy writer.

This is the branch: https://github.com/isabelabagueros/tpo

I merged it. I'm keeping this ticket open until we see an update for at least a few search engines to see if it does what we want.

Google now says:

Tor is a free software that prevents people from learning your location or browsing habits by letting you communicate anonymously on the Internet. It also helps ...
