> Metadata is data (information) about data. > The <meta> tagprovides metadata about the HTML document. > Metadata will not be displayed on the page, but will be machine parsable.  > Metaelements are typically used to specify page description, keywords, author of the document, last modified, and other metadata.

Metadata: Content that sets up the presentation or behavior of the rest of the content. These elements are found in the head of the document. Elements: <base>, <link>, <meta>, <noscript>, <script>, <style>, <title>
