Nothing you put on the internet should be accidental. It all should link back to and with your business. This includes your Title Tags (aka page titles) and your Meta Descriptions.

Title Tags and Meta Descriptions are the info that informs Google and your potential users what your webpage is talkin’ ‘bout.
The title tag is a lil’ piece of code that reveals and shows the web page’s title. The meta description, done correctly, should be a lil’ synopsis of the content on the page. It’ll show up under the title tag. Boffoffum show up within the HTML code—in the header section—on your website.
Also, the title of your internet tab–and the page titles that go with that—will reveal your title tags. Betcha didn’t know that, huh?
Most of the Content Management Systems, like WordPress anem, have forms that auto-set your <title> tags around your page titles when you’re makin’ your pages for your site. OK. One more time for the record, fam.
