The meta description is a snippet of up to about 155 characters – a tag in HTML – which summarizes a page's content. Search engines show the meta description in search results mostly when the searched-for phrase is within the description, so optimizing the meta description is crucial for on-page SEO .

Meta descriptions are HTML attributes that provide concise summaries of webpages. They are between one sentence to a short paragraph and appear underneath the blue clickable links in a search engine results page (SERP).

A meta description is an attribute within your meta tags that helps describe your page. This snippet of text may appear in the search engine results under your headline, though sometimes, search engines will pull a snippet of text from the main body copy of the page instead.

You can find the meta description on any web page by right-clicking on the page and selecting "view source" or "view page source":

Meta description is the preview text shown on search engine result page below the title. They are provided inside the web page html file. Meta tags are included inside script. Meta description should be in such a way that explains in less words about what the web page content is.
