Meta tags are little bits of information you can add to your website’s HTML code (hypertext mark-up language) that describe the page to search engines. Search engines read these meta tags like book reviewers read reviews of books. Meta tags are very important for two reasons:

  • They tell the search engine what your site is about.
  • They tell the search engine how to best display your site in its results pages.

Here are some common Meta Tags:

<meta name=”descriptioncontent=”See Team 218 Web Services for Web Design/>

<meta name=”generator” content=”WordPress 5.8″ />

<meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, user-scalable=yes, initial-scale=1.0, minimum-scale=0.1, maximum-scale=10.0″>
