Essentially meta tags are words and phrases embedded in your sites html code that allows search engines to recognize your site and bring it up during searches with keywords used in the meta information. There are a few kinds of meta information you can put on your site. You'll need a title, description and keywords.

Title: a few words or one short sentence about your website/product/category. This is what appears along the top of your browser when you visit a website page.

Description: 2-3 sentences to describe your business/product/category. This is what will show up as the descriptive text to your URL when you are found in search engines.

Keywords: 12-25 words and short phrases separated by commas. ie- christmas tutus, highly scented candles, cool dog collars
