How to Write Meta Tags (Titles and Descriptions) for SEO

Meta tags are a part of the HTML code (HTML tags) for your website and describe any page's content to the search engine crawlers.  Meta tags are essential to all search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Yandex, Duck Duck Go, and Bing.

The phrasing "meta tag" makes it sound like these work behind the scenes away from the reader's eyes. After all, that's the case with meta keywords. However, the title and tight summary you see on a SERP are often pulled from how the writer set up their title tags and meta descriptions.
