What is a meta description and how does it help SEO?

The meta description is the description you give to a web page that’s shown in the website metadata and then used to give a brief overview of the page in the search results. Although Google now uses rich snippets from other areas of web pages at times, good, descriptive meta descriptions can help you to gain clicks from the search results.
