    • Meta Description – [recommended] The short summary displayed underneath the URL in Google’s search results as well as the Web Platform search page.

    • Original Source URL – If you want to repost an article published elsewhere, the Original Source URL ("canonical tag") will tell the search engines that this page is just a copy, and the spiders should index and feature the original source in their results.
