Content Management meta tags

Meta tags are special tags in web pages that contain information about the page but are not rendered with the page. You can define custom meta tags for content pages.

Meta tags 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.

Structurally, a meta tag consists of a tag and a name/content pair and looks similar to the following code.

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

The Content Management System allows you to define both site level and page level tags.
