Meta tags help search engines understand and categorize web pages. They are crucial for optimizing product pages and websites, increasing visibility, and driving traffic. 

What is a meta tag?

Meta tags are small snippets of code that help search engines understand and categorize web pages. While they aren't visible to users, they play a crucial role in influencing how well a page performs in search results.

For sellers, meta tags are extremely important for optimizing their product pages and websites for search engines.

By using relevant keywords and descriptive meta tags, sellers can significantly increase their chances of appearing higher in search results, which can ultimately result in more traffic and sales.

How many meta tags are there?

When it comes to meta tags, there are actually quite a few different types out there. However, for e-commerce sellers like yourself, it's worth noting that the most important ones are:

  • Title tag: This is the friendly text(Title) that appears in the search results and at the top of the browser window (web pages). It should be a short and precise description of the page content.
  • Meta description: This is a brief and friendly description of the page that appears below the title tag in search results. It should be captivating and informative, aiming to encourage users to click through to the page.
  • Meta keywords: This tag is not widely used by the majority of search engines anymore. However, it can still be useful for certain specific search engines and directories. Therefore, it is worth considering its use in those particular cases.

What are meta tags and alt tags?

Meta tags and alt tags are both types of metadata, but they serve different purposes.

Meta tags are used to give information about a web page to search engines, while alt tags are used to provide information about images to search engines, screen readers and other assistive technologies.
