A meta description is a part of the meta information and is stored in the source code of a page. It should represent the content of the respective page in summary. The meta description is used as an optimization measure in the field of search engine optimization. It is suitable for the placement of important keywords. In addition, the meta description is shown in the results of a search engine. It should not exceed 160 characters, because it will then no longer be displayed in the search results. When writing, bear in mind that a searcher browses the search results and decides which website he will ultimately visit by using the information in the meta title and meta description. That is why the content should not only be worded appropriately, but also in an interesting manner.
