How to scrape SEO meta tags from any website

Meta tags are HTML tags that provide metadata about a web page, such as a page’s title, description, and keywords, which can be used by search engines to understand the content of the page better. 

The meta title and meta description are also essential to make a good first impression as search engines use these when displaying search results. As a result, a great title and description can affect the clickthrough rate (CTR) and therefore traffic you can receive from search engines.

Extracting meta tags is therefore a routine SEO task that can be used to:

-Optimize titles and descriptions to improve search engine CTR and clicks

-Analyze titles and descriptions to improve keyword or topical coverage

This can be done for your own websites or to study competitors to identify SEO opportunities.
