In this HubSpot video, we’re going to learn how to write and edit your meta descriptions. A meta description is an HTML attribute that provides a brief summary of a webpage. This brief snippet of text that appears below the blue link in a search engine result. This description summarizes the content of the webpage linked above it, and although it is not an official ranking factor in Google search results, it can be edited to help people understand what the webpage is about and encourage them to click through.
