I think that Meta Descriptions still matter. Meta Descriptions are very similar to Meta Keywords. They reside in the title tag of each page on your site. Meta Descriptions are often what shows up in an indexed page on the search engines. You will see the title of the website and then the Meta Description. The Meta Description also tells search engines what the webpage is about. It’s important to use complete sentences that utilize your keywords and sound good. Your Meta Descriptions should not exceed 140 characters (including spacing).
