Something you’ll find in a number of web pages that some would believe is still relevant and useful is the meta description. This particular meta tag is meant to allow webmasters to sketch out both the quality and content of an individual page on your site.
Although meta descriptions were used, discussed and strategized over in the past, are they still useful in this day and age?
If you have a website that has hundreds or thousands of pages that either contain little to no meta descriptions (or just plain bad descriptions), is everything ok, or is it a good time to start panicking?
In a Search Engine Journal piece, written by Stephen Watts, he wrote about what you need to know about when you should or shouldn’t write meta descriptions for your web pages.
