What Is a Meta Tag and How Do You Use Them?

Written by Dan

Meta tags are HTML elements that give information about a web page. They’re not displayed on the page itself, but are used by search engines and other applications to understand the content of a page.

The most common meta tags are the <title> tag and the <meta> tag. The <title> tag tells browsers what text to display as the title of the page, while the <meta> tag provides information about the page, such as its description, keywords and author.
