Meta Tag

A meta tag is a snippet of text that describes the content of a webpage. Meta tags don’t actually appear on the page itself – but in the background, aka the code. They help tell search engines what that webpage is all about.

Because of this, using meta tags correctly is a fundamental part of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). If you want to rank high in Google searches, make sure you (or whoever maintains your website) is applying meta tags strategically.
