How to use meta tags in HTML

This has been a popular question being ask by so many IT student, so I have created this platform for problems like this to ease the stress of finding solution to your problems.Below is a breakdown of the solution to the problem above.

Meta tags don’t do anything to the content that is presented in the browser window, but they are used by the likes of search engines to catalogue information about the web page.

The reason why meta tags used to be so important was because they were relied on by search engines to build a profile of a web page.

Nowadays however, most search engines use the actual content of the page itself, rendering most meta data useless beyond conveying information to someone who is physically reading the HTML.

     <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
     <meta name="description" content="This is my bloody exciting web page          about air conditioners" />

Hope this was helpful 🙂 .
