Meta Description

What is Meta Description? – Definition

Meta Description is an HTML attribute that is displayed in the search results and briefly describes the content of web pages. And even though since 2009 these tags are not considered to be a Google ranking factor (as opposed to: title tag), it is still worth ensuring their good quality.

Meta description tag is aimed at increasing users’ interest and consequently improving the click-through rate (CTR) of a given page.
