    Meta description is description of web page or website, means it gives overall information what the page about, or what the site about...

    It is read by search engines only but when your keyword is ranking in search engine then it would be shown within your keyword in search result too. So it works for description of that web page in SERP.

    Meta description is very important for SEO. In order to get better results, here are some advice for you:
    1. Don’t forget that keywords matching the users query will be matched in bold and therefore draw the eye’s attention to your result and increase your chances of click through.
    2. Include brand message. I will give you an advantage between your competittors.
    3.Make it unique. If you don’t, Google Webmaster Tools will tell you off! It must be unique to the contents of the page.

    Meta Description – A brief description of fewer than 160 characters of the contents of a page and why someone would want to visit it. This is often displayed on search engine results pages below the page title as a sample of the content on the page. Many financial institutions have Meta Descriptions that greatly exceed the 160-character limit.

    Hi

    Meta descriptions are HTML attributes that provide concise explanations of the contents of web pages. Meta descriptions are commonly used on search engine result pages (SERPs) to display preview snippets for a given page.

    Code Sample

    <head>
    <meta name="description" content="This is an example of a meta description. This will often show up in search results.">
    </head>

    Meta description helps a page to become search engine optimized and these are the specifics that experts recommend when adding:

    - Every page should have a unique meta description
    - should not be more than 160 characters as search engines, such as Google, usually truncate characters more than that when they scrape your meta description for SERP snippets (which could give an incomplete idea of what the page is all about); thus, better to write a meta description that is less than 160 character - short and concise.
    - if possible, intelligently put your target keywords.

    From the Meta description we understand the what a page is all about. It is short summary of a web page. Search engine use this description to know about a web page in which it is defined and shows it in its search result.

    Also, meta description should be unique to each page of your website so please don't use the same meta description for multiple pages, you can use targeted keywords in meta description as well.

    Meta elements provide information about the web page, which can be used by search engines to help categorize the page correctly.
    There are two important Meta Tags
    • meta description
    • meta keyword tags.
    Meta tags can be found in the <head> element of a web page. Many have a query like if meta tags can be placed within the <body> of a page? ?
    but it’s best not to do this. By putting meta tags in the body, some browsers may not recognize them and you’re essentially creating invalid markup. Often, meta tags will contain a name attribute, which sets a type of metadata. The value of this metadata is expressed through a content attribute.
    Meta tags are very important as is regularly updating your site with original, Interlinking this content to make it more friendly for users and search engines, well written content, Server speed, Where your host is located ,building backlinks to your website from quality , relevant websites using various anchor texts
