Meta tag

The term meta tag is a combination of the Greek word meta and the English word tag.


Meta tags are HTML elements that are located within the source code of a web page in the header area (head) and are not visible to the end user. Meta tags play a role in search engine optimisation (SEO) and contain elementary information about a website. The most important meta tags include meta descriptions, keywords and author.
