Meta tags are fragments of text that describe and summarise a page’s content. Meta descriptions are a tool within your meta tags, that help you describe your page. The snippet of text can appear in search engine results under your site’s headline. However, sometimes Google, and other search engines, might insert a fragment of your page’s content that is not your meta description, under your headline.

While meta descriptions do not directly affect Google rankings, they can influence click-through rates. A well-written meta description can help drive more visitors to your site, which can indirectly affect your SEO rankings. Adding a meta description can be as easy as writing a short and compelling description. This tutorial will focus on teaching you how to add meta descriptions with and without a plugin.
