  • What is Meta

    Can anybody explain me what is Meta ?

    Just as it say on the Meta forum page "Discussion about these forums, the Spring web site, issue tracker, infrastructure, etc. If is about a Spring library itself, it doesn't belong here."
    So it is discussions about the discussion ;-)

      I think that what you are looking for is metadata which is a set of data that describes and gives information about other data. Well, it functions as a pseudo description to something which is embedded to the file itself and usually is not open to editing.

      To put it in a simpler term, a metadata is a data about a data. It usually includes all the necessary information with a particular data set, object or resource.

        A special HTML tag that provides information about a Web page. Unlike normal HTML tags, meta tags do not affect how the page is displayed. Instead, they provide information such as who created the page, how often it is updated, what the page is about and which keywords represent the page's content. Many search engines use this information when building their indices.

          Meta tag

          Though meta keywords tags are not a major factor search engines consider when ranking sites, they should not be left off the page. Both the meta keywords tag and the meta description tag contribute to your search engine ranking. A meta keywords tag is supposed to be a brief and concise list of the most important themes of your page. The meta keywords tag takes the following form:

          <meta name="keywords" content="keywords, keyword, keyword phrase, etc.">

            Meta is a prefix that in most information technology usages means "definition or description." Metadata is a definition or description of data. This page describes the term meta tag and lists other pages on the Web where you can find additional information.
