Meta Element

Definition - What does Meta Element mean?

Meta elements in languages like HTML are represented by meta tags. They provide metadata about webpages. Meta elements are situated in the “head” section of the source code. Some of these elements load before an actual page is rendered by a browser.

Techopedia explains Meta Element

Meta elements can be used to describe parts of a webpage in code. They can also be used as an alternative to an HTTP response header field. The valid meta elements in HTML include content, name, scheme and http-equiv, as well as charset.

One way to think about meta elements is as coded elements in a webpage. A meta tag is accompanied by coding to describe the meta element.
