Definition of Meta Tags

<meta> tags define metadata about an HTML document (webpage). Metadata is essentially information about data, giving machines additional insight into a webpage.

Metadata will not be displayed on the web page, but it is machine readable.

<meta> tags always go inside the <head> element of an HTML doc, and are typically used to specify page description, character set, viewport settings, robots directives, and author of the document.
