Your webpage's meta description is an HTML tag that is intended to provide a short and accurate summary of your page. Search engines use meta descriptions to help identify the a page's topic - they may also use meta descriptions by displaying them directly in search engine results. Accurate and inviting meta descriptions can help boost both your search engine rankings and a user's likelihood of clicking through to your page.
In order to pass this test you must include a meta-description tag in your page header (<head> section):
<meta name="description" content="type_your_description_here">
Note that in HTML the <meta> tag has no end tag but in XHTML this tag must be properly closed.
Meta description can have any length but a good practice is to keep this under 160 characters (search engines generally truncate snippets longer than this value).
