Is it possible for anyone to understand the content of the text by reading the first few words or say a sentence from it? No, I don’t think anyone could just tell what the text is all about without reading the full or at least half of the text. And suppose you read the whole and find that it was not at all important to you? So it would have been a waste of time right. So, here comes the word Meta tag.

Now, a tag is a very familiar word to us. Tag or tagging refers to the identification of an object that could be clothing or any other clothing. So, what is Meta Tag?

what is meta tags?

Meta Tag is a word that is closely related to HTML. A simple HTML code can contain more than 100 of codes. So, it is not possible for the SEO to understand what the HTML program is all about. So, here comes the use of Meta Tags. It refers to the smallest piece of information provide the text for its identification. Or to be precise we can say that it describes the content of the page. Meta tag provides information about the document itself. Though tags are visualized by all but Meta tags are present on the coding of the page or on the browser. Meta tags are present at the head of the page, or in the search engine or in the browser.

Some of Meta Tags

There are four major types of Meta tags that are worth knowing. They are:

  • Title Tag : Title text that appears at the top of the browser is called the Title tag. Search engines refer this text as the title of the page. This is the most important Meta tag attribute used in recent days. This is visible to the user. This has proved to be helpful for those who open multiple tabs on the browser while surfing on the internet. It gives primary information to the SEO. It is the simplest attribute but is the most significant according to Google.
  • Meta Tag keywords : It is a number of keywords that are relevant to the page. It is a short description that gives more or less information about the page. This is the oldest attribute that is not used nowadays. Google stop these attribute years ago.
  • Meta Tag Description : Whenever you search anything on a search engine, many links comes. A short description is present after each link. This is a Meta Tag Description. At this section of the tags, the designer provides a description about the page. The more it is simple, the more it is useful for the users. It tells the searchers what is the page all about. The searchers usually open the link if they find this tag to be useful for them. This is the primary tag. Google says that Meta Tag descriptions are still very important for them.
  • Meta Tag Robots : It is the description for the search engine as what to do with the page. They can be further classified as;
    • Index or no index: This tells the search engine whether to show the page in the search or not.
    • Follow or no follow: This says the search engines whether to follow the link or not.
