Fix "Missing META Description" Errors
You should make sure that each of your web pages has a META <meta> tag with name="description". The description is sometimes displayed directly in the SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages) below the title. However, there is no guarantee for this, as the search engines sometimes create their own descriptions. You can add the META description either in your web editor, CMS system or directly in the source code of the HTML page.
HTML Source Sample:
<meta name="description" content="Sample META Description">
