A meta tag is a tag (that is, a coding statement) in the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) that describes some aspect of the contents of a Web page. There are many meta tags and html-tags and obviously they don't all influence the search result.

1. The Title Tag
Although the title tag appears in the head block of the page, it is not actually a meta tag. What’s the variation? The title tag is a required page “element” according to the W3C. Meta tags are optionally available page descriptors.

2. The Description Meta Tag
Ideally, your description should be no extended than 155 characters (including spaces). However, check the search engine results page (SERP) of choice to ensure this. Some are longer and some are shorter. This is only a rule of thumb, not a definite “best practice” anymore.

3. The Keywords Meta Tag
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, the “keywords” meta tag was a important element for early search engines. Much like the dinosaurs, this tag is a fossil from ancient search engine times.
The only search engine that looks at the keywords nowadays is Microsoft’s Bing and they use it to help detect spam. To avoid hurting your site, your best option is to never add this tag.
