What Are Meta Tags?

Meta tags are snippets of text in the code on your pages that describe a page’s content; the meta tags don’t appear on your live website, only in the page’s code. Meta tags help search engines what a web page is about.

Meta tags exist in HTML, usually at the “head” of the page, and so are only visible to search engines (developers). The “meta” stands for “metadata,” which is the kind of data these tags provide – data about the data on your page.

Mata tags are inserted at the beginning and end of the specific content it is highlighting for search engines. For example. the description of an item will have for example The code tells search engines that '24 ct gold and platinum wedding band for her.' will be used to tell search engines what the item is.
