Meta Title

Title tags are used to tell search engines and visitors what any given page on your site is about in the most concise and accurate way possible. Title tags show up in the search engine results, but also if you share a page on Facebook or on the tab of your browser. The most important thing with a good title tag is that it describes the page and convinces the writer to click. Here is an example of the Meta title in a Google search.

Meta Description

The meta description is the short paragraph of text that describes the content of a page. The meta description will then appear under your page’s URL in the search results. A meta description can influence the decision of the searcher as to whether they want to click through on your content from search results or not. The more descriptive, attractive and relevant the description, the more likely someone will click through. Here is an example of Meta description in a Google search.

Know what you are writing for

You should know the page you are writing the meta title and meta description for. You should check the web page carefully and learn what it is about. It's crucial to know the topic and the content of the page to give clear information.
