Meta Tags

Meta tags are structured data elements appearing in the head section of web pages. They are structured because they are standardized tags that define specific attributes relating to the page. The most commonly used meta tags are the title and description tags because without them a page's listing on search engines would be incomplete. Here are examples showing the syntax of the title and description tags: <title>Page title</title> <meta name="description" content="Description text">.
