Content Management meta tags

Meta tags are special tags added to web pages that contain information about the page rather than being part of the page.

Meta tags are not rendered and are not noticeable to a page visitor unless the visitor looks at the page source code. Web search engines read meta tags as they "crawl" the web, identifying and organizing content. Modern website designers often use meta tags to embed "hints" to search engines about how to index or otherwise crawl the site in question.

You can define custom meta tags for content pages.

Structurally, a meta tag consists of a tag a name/content pair and looks similar to this example.

<meta name="generator" content="MediaWiki 1.16wmf4" />

CMS allows you to define both site level and page level tags.
