The Meta Information tab is for specifying metadata for a product. Metadata is descriptive information about a page that search engines can use to index your store’s product pages. This content is not visible directly on your website.

Meta Title: Specify a title for your product’s page. By default the name of the item is used.

Meta Description: Write a few sentences describing the content on the page. Though it is not visible on your page itself, some search engines will list this page’s search result using the meta description text.

Meta Keywords: Specify keywords that are relevant to the product. It is helpful to consider keywords that potential customers may search if they were searching for your products with a search engine.
