A meta description is an HTML tag (some text in the code) which provides information on the page. You can fill a meta description for each page within your website and this is also advisable to do.

The meta description is just like the title tag in the search results and serves as a description for the page. Below you can see how a meta description looks in the search results.

Some SEO specialists has a meta description not easy to increase your position in the rankings. I have a suspicion that it really counts for the positions in Google and for the simple reason that you almost always websites in the top 10 (first page) that runs both the title tag and the meta description are used to right keywords to fill.

The good filling of the meta description can make sure that you stand out among the other results. The better you know the description blank, the more customers it will click on your website. This is also called the CTR, Click Through Ratio.

How can you increase the CTR with a meta description?

As with a Title tag is highly recommended that the meta description as well and as fully as possible to fill. Again, a maximum width of 512 pixels so it may be that your rules abbreviated by Google in the display of the search results. Try as much as possible.

The meta description is wise your keyword (combination) to call and phrases that your customers incentives to click. If you enter your keyword in the description, these as in the Title tag bold displayed. Allows you fall for potential customers.

As in the Title tag is recommended by a "Call to Action" to be used in the text. These words can be as 'free' or 'Save'. This fall customers and they are more likely to click on your website.

In short, a good page begins with completing a proper Meta Description.

The meta description is a meta tag that is used to describe the current Web page. It provides a short summary of the page so that readers can decide whether the page is what they are looking for or looks interesting.

The meta description is used by search engines to describe the Web page in their results. If your page doesn't have a good meta description, it still could display near the top of the results, but the listing will just grab content from your page, which can end up with a link that no one clicks on.

HTML tag that describes the current Web page, Meta description of your search engines and gives users a quick summary of what is your page everything. If it's relevant and compelling, your chances to win a click from a user's search engine is very good.

Meta-description should be engaging since it is one of the factors online why user click the website on the search results and putting one or two keywords on it is highly recommended. Search engine also limit the number of characters on meta-description on their search result so create only 150-160 characters on your description.

Meta description is a HTML code that explains the content mentioned on the website. It is used after title tag, and before meta tags.

Hey
Basically Meta Description is to shot story of what your page is about. So with different Meta Descriptions on different pages, it is telling Google that these pages are actually different from each other and are not dynamically created duplicate pages.

The meta description attribute is a largely undervalued facet of search engine marketing. If your page doesn't have a good meta description, it still could shown near the top of the results, but the listing will only grab content from your page which can end up with a link that no one clicks on.
