The meta description tag is not the magic answer that will place your website at the top of the search results. But, if you’ve ever heard an SEO consultant saying that this tag doesn’t matter for the search engines, it’s time for you to reconsider. Some even tell you that Google completely ignores that tag. Nothing could be further from the truth

What is a Meta Description?

Meta description tags, while not important to search engine rankings, are extremely important in gaining user click-through from SERPs. These short paragraphs are a webmaster’s opportunity to advertise content to searchers and to let them know exactly whether the given page contains the information they're looking for.

The meta description should employ the keywords intelligently, but also create a compelling description that a searcher will want to click. Direct relevance to the page and uniqueness between each page’s meta description is key. The description should optimally be between 150-160 characters.

The meta description is a ~160 character snippet, a tag in HTML, that summarizes a page's content. Search engines show the meta description in search results mostly when the searched for phrase is contained in the description. Optimizing the meta description is a very important aspect of on-page SEO.

A meta description tag is a snippet of HTML code in a web page header that summarizes the content that is on the web page. The meta description is usually placed after the title tag and before the meta keywords tag. When optimizing a web page for search engines (SEO), it is considered a best practice to use meta description tags.

The meta depiction tag in HTML is the 160 character piece used to outline a site page's substance. Web crawlers now and again utilize these bits in query items to tell guests what a page is about before they tap on it.

A Meta description is an HTML element in the Meta tags that helps to specifically describe your webpage. The Meta description provides search engine users a brief summary of what they'll find if they click through to your website. An imperative Meta description has the authority to improve the click-through rate of your organic search results which means more of the audiences who view your page in the search results will actually click through and land on your website which indirectly results in more traffic for you, even if your ranking stays the same.
