Definition and Usage

Metadata is data (information) about data.
The <meta> tag provides metadata about the HTML document. Metadata will not be displayed on the page, but will be machine parsable.
Meta elements are typically used to specify page description, keywords, author of the document, last modified, and other metadata.
The <meta> tag always goes inside the <head> element.
The metadata can be used by browsers (how to display content or reload page), search engines (keywords), or other web services
