Meta Tags

Meta tags have been one of the most basic elements of SEO. Please ensure you have a minimum set of tags in the head of your HTML. This will ensure your website will always have a description, an icon for the browser, web-app manifest icons and icons for Apple devices.

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1" />
The viewport meta tag tells the browser that the width of the screen should be considered the 'full width' of the page.
