    This tag is one of the most important ranking factors in the search engines ranking algorithms, so populating your most important keywords in this tag will dramatically increase the search engine rankings of the page.

    Place the most important keywords or keyword phrases at the beginning of the tag and keep your title short, roughly 10 to 64 characters including spaces. Try to minimize the use of stop words, such as a, an, of, on, etc., as they consume character count and offer no value.

    If you feel that the length is insufficient, then use no more than 70. Over 70 will not contribute any weight as part of the document.

    Avoid including in your title any irrelevant words (not found on the page),because it will weaken the impact on your targeted keywords. It can also trigger spam filters of various search engines.





    This Meta tag doesn't offer any SEO advantage, but simply provides a brief description of a web page. It is important that the description clearly describes the purpose of the page, because it's not just for the search engines results snippets, but primarily for humans to read.

    This can provide potential visitors very relevant information that probably will not be displayed in the snippet otherwise, and can increase the CTR from the search engine results.

    Keep all descriptions larger than 50 characters, and no more than 149 characters, including spaces, Google displays 154 characters, but other search engines display even less.

    If for some reason you cannot achieve that, at least place the most important information at the beginning of the first sentence. This will guarantee that both users and search engines will see the most important information about your page.

    Be aware that if you are adding irrelevant words into the description it can possibly trigger search engine spam filters. Make certain the tag is relevant to the page theme. Avoid adding text that is not found within the visible text of the page.

    To recap: Description meta tags are not made for search engines, they are made for humans. So write a text that sells to convert the searcher into a buyer, and achieve the best 'Return On Your Search Engine Marketing Campaign Investment'.

    This is very good information about these often misunderstood tags. Also remember that the title tag is displayed in the title bar at the top of the browser window, so make it catch the eye and sell the page. Try to get your keywords as near the beginning as possible, but write for your human visitor and make your title both readable and intriguing to coax your potential visitor to click on your link.

    Meta title 65 characters and meta description 150 characters are ideal. It can exceed to 255 characters but its better to use nearer to 150.
