The meta description is a ~160 character snippet, a tag 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 meta description is a very important aspect of on-page SEO.

Meta description is an important meta tag that is included in the head section of the web page.

Usually (but not always) Google will display the contents of the meta description below the title in the search results if the page appears in the search results.

Ideally the meta description should be a concise summary of the page contents , should have keywords if appropriate and induce the searcher to click on it.

Meta descriptions are the short overview or we can say summary of your webpages. They commonly appear below the clickable links in a search engine results page.

Meta description are created under 160 character limit. It should be directly relevant to the page it describes, and unique from the descriptions for other pages.

A meta description can influence the decision of the searcher as to whether they want to click through on your content from search results or not. The more descriptive, attractive and relevant the description, the more likely someone will click through.
