Meta Tags

Meta tags (also known as Meta Data Elements) are included at the top (Head) of a web page written in HTML language, and designed to provide search engines with information about the website. Website administrators and website promoters use Meta tags to define and promote the website to the different search engines, especially Google.  Meta description tags are a short (140 character carefully worded) description of the page, and for the most part, will be picked up intact and used as a descriptive phrase presented in the search engine results. Meta tags can also control Meta robots, whose responsibility is to control how the search engines scan and index the site.
