Meta elements are HTML or XHTML elements used to provide structured metadata about a Web page. Such elements must be placed as tags in the head section of an HTML or XHTML document. Meta tags are different for each page and serve as a way of communicating with search engines and passing the most important page information to the search engine crawlers. Meta tags are very important for search engine optimization and help your page allot in reaching targeted visitors that search for content on your page.

In simple terms, the meta tags are like an id for the page and based on that id, the crawler knows how to place it in results.

All the Famous Quotes CMS pages have meta tags.

This is how meta tags look in the source code of pages:
<title>The meta title goes here</title>
<meta name="description" content="Free Web tutorials" />
<meta name="keywords" content="HTML,CSS,XML,Javascript" />

The website might also insert website name string to the end of the title.
