The meta description is a ~160 character snippet, atag in HTML, that summarizes a page's content. Search engines show the meta description in search results mostly when the searched for phrase is contained in the description. Optimizing the metadescription is a very important aspect of on-page SEO.

The meta description tag in HTML is the 160 character snippet used to summarize a web page's content. Search engines sometimes use these snippets in search results to let visitors know what a page is about before they click on it.

Description tag is an essential On-Page SEO element because it helps in defining the content of the webpage in a short summary. It should be of 150-160 characters and must utilize keywords of a webpage.
