Meta Tags

meta tags

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

Meta elements are typically used to specify page description, keywords, author of the document, last modified, and other metadata.

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

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

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 sign to close the start tag.

This is a special HTML tag that is used to store information anout a Web Page but is not displayed in a web browser.
