A meta title is an important part of website optimization, and it's distinct from the headline on the page itself. It acts as a name tag for the web page. The title is displayed on your browser tab and tells you what page you're on. Meta titles are also read by search engine robots and seen by users searching the web.

The meta description is a snippet of up to about 155 characters – a tag in HTML – which summarizes a page's content. Search engines show the meta description in search results mostly when the searched-for phrase is within the description, so optimizing the meta description is crucial for on-page SEO.

A meta description is meta tag that acts as a 155-160 characters summary that describes the content of a web page.

Search engines show it in search results when the meta description also includes the keywords being searched. Unlike the page title, meta descriptions are not a ranking factor, but they do entice users to click through to a page and are part of effective on page SEO. You'll see them in a page's code as <meta name="description" content=, followed by the written description.
