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.
