<meta> tag provides metadata about the HTML document. Metadata will not be displayed on the page, but will give information to the browser andsearch engines.

The <meta> tag always goes inside the head elemenet.

The metadata can be used by browsers (how to display or reload page) , search engines (keywords) , or other webservices.

The meta tag is a self-closing tag. Instead of putting a tag with a slash at the end of the code you just put the greater than sign to close the start tag.

A meta tag is a tag (that is, a coding statement) in the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) that describes some aspect of the contents of a Web page.
