What is a Meta tag?

There are two types of “search engine optimization” (seo), first is off-page and second is on-page. Meta tag is most important part of seo with on-page method. Meta tags include Title, description and keywords, which is explain source of page OR what actually page about.

As per my knowledge, I present some instruction to make Meta tags:

1.    Title: Page titles are an important feature of search engine optimization. You can show your title at head of browser. Title is explained shortly that what page has described. So, please make your title short, descriptive and page related. And its best length is 55 to 60 characters. Remember that you should make unique title for each page. The <title> tag should be located within the <head> tag of the HTML source code.
