What Are Meta Tags?

Meta tags are placed into the coding of a web page.They are a type of HTML code that are written after the title tag. You’ll hear about meta tags and meta data a lot when working around SEO. In this case, people are usually referring to the page description and the page keywords, both of which are written within meta tags.

Human users don’t see Meta tags, only search spiders do. They are used to show search engines what your page is about and, alongside your content, will help to ensure that you appear in relevant sets of search results. While meta descriptions and meta keywords are the most common tags, others, including http-equiv, refresh, robots, and copyright tags might be used, which can again help search engines to ensure you appear in the most relevant results.
