    Meta tags give your browser, or any search engines more information on how to display your page.

    The main meta tags that you should include are these:

    Tell the browser what character set you are using:
    Code:
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">


    Tell Search Engines how to display your website in the google rankings:
    Code:
    <meta name="description" content="just wondering what do meta tags actually do does it just help your site become more visible to the world? if so i have added almost all the meta tags from here to my site http://www.metatags.info/all">


    Any other meta tag should be added only as you need it. :smile:
