The meta informations are informations about the document itself . The meta tag is used to define the author, the description, the keywords and other information that are not standardized with specific tags.

The "meta" tag is used to describe the html page (document) itself. It is not visible to the user, but can be parsed by search engines for example.

Here is a good article about meta tags usage
