Meta Description

Meta descriptions are short sentences that summarise the content of HTML documents for search engines. For this to work, they are stored in the upper area of an HTML document. In the browser search, the meta description is displayed together with the title tag. A good meta description has a positive effect on the search engine ranking and attracts users to the website.
