Search Engine Glossary / Meta tags (Metatags)
HTML code which Search Engines use to display in search results and determine the relevance of the page to the search. Meta title and description tags should include targeted keywords and entice the searcher to click through to the page. Some meta tags are no longer considered relevent for SEO e.g. the meta keywords tag which carries little or no weight.
