Meta Description

section of a website whose sole purpose is to describe what the web page is about. In the past, the meta description was shown in the SERPs (search engine results pages) but this was abused and Google now shows excerpts of the web page instead of the Meta Description in the SERPs most of the time instead. Although the Meta Description can still be shown in some cases. This still holds value (but very low) in Google’s search engine algorithm.
