What Are Title Tags and Meta Descriptions?

Search engines will index your website pages based on the title tag and meta descriptions so it is important that they describe your business accurately and include relevant keywords that match search queries.

Why Are They Important?

Title tags are displayed on search engine results pages, with the clickable headline being the title tag and the description underneath the meta description.
So they also must be dynamic enough to grab the users attention so they click through to your website!

Title tags and meta descriptions are important for usability, SEO, and social sharing.
