Hello Friends,

A Meta Description, or in some cases just called Description, is an HTML attribute (code) that is meant to provide a summary of what a web page is about. The Meta Description is often used by search engines on the results page as the description following a link.

Thanks and Regards

I think about you can use at least one main keyword in meta title and meta description and also you must use keyword or relevant keyword in meta keyword. At this time Meta Keyword is not requirement in SERP.

As per the guidelines every page should have unique met a description, i don't prefer the same description on many pages. It may affect the ranking.

The meta description tag is not a ranking factor for Google or any pother search engine. It's only use is as a search results snippet and then only if there is a sufficiently close match between the search term, the meta description tag, and the specific page content.

One could argue that having the same meta description for every page in a multi-page thread is actually an advantage, not a liability.

Whether you meta description or not, search engine would find meta description from your web pages, however, you should use your own meta description which tells what your site about and it would be shown in SERP too.

It can affect in searching option. It doesn't affect the rank. But write unique and fresh content for your site so that you can avoid duplicity.

The meta description is a meta tag that is used to describe the current Web page. It provides a short summary of the page so that readers can decide whether the page is what they are looking for or looks interesting.

Meta description is plays a vital role in seo. Search engine displays title and description of a webpage in search result as website snippet. So don't skip meta description. You can skip meta keywords; it doesn't add any value and makes a webpage spammy.

The meta description is one of your last hopes on search engine results pages (SERPs) to attract a searcher to come to your site. This is something that digital marketers constantly neglect to focus on -- perhaps because they think it just doesn't matter anymore

Remember that the meta description is often (not always) displayed by the search engine when it returns your site as a search result. At that point, SEO has done all it can -- now it's up to the visitor to read the titles and descriptions, and decide which site to click on and visit. Which is going to be more effective at attracting eyeballs and clicks -- some random text scraped from the page, or a short and sweet descriptive summary?

Meta descriptions are HTML attributes that provide concise explanations of the contents of web pages. Meta descriptions are commonly used on search engine result pages (SERPs) to display preview snippets for a given page.

Code Sample
<head>
<meta name="description" content="This is an example of a meta description. This will often show up in search results.">
</head>

Meta description is not same on each page.
