    The meta description is a snippet of up to about 155 characters – a tag in HTML – which summarizes a page's content. Search engines show the meta description in search results mostly when the searched-for phrase is within the description, so optimizing the meta description is crucial for on-page SEO .

    Not knowing about meta descriptions is not a fact to be easily gulped. And yes, they still matter.
