I'm a little confused here. Do you meant to say that there is something else to the word "meta" other then meta tags when someone is talking about SEO?

Thanks for your question!

What I meant is that when SEOs talk about a meta tag, what they mean is a meta element. The meta tag is just this bit: <meta and /> (not the part in between it), while the whole meta element is for instance <meta name="description" content="Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet." />

Does that make sense?
