What is a Meta Description and how do I create one?

    A meta description is a concise sentence that appears beneath your course title for individuals using search engines, like Google, to discover a course on platforms such as Alison. It serves as an opportunity to capture the interest of potential learners, providing a brief overview of the course in one or two sentences. When crafting your meta description, consider incorporating SEO strategies, including relevant keywords and phrases.
