7 Best Tools to Generate SEO Meta Description (Free and Paid)
When it comes to writing, nothing beats a human with good writing skills.
Communication is always done better between humans. However, we understand that sometimes you need to save time, and what feels more tedious than writing meta descriptions, right?
That’s why, today, we’re going to help you out by looking at some alternatives to a workforce.
In this post, we’ll list the best meta description generators out there!
These are AI writing tools that have specific features for this type of task. If you are looking for AI writing tools in general, please have a look at our other posts where we review some of them.
While AI writing tools are usually paid, the good news is their meta description generators tend to be free so you can have a taste of what the AI is capable of.
Now, before diving right in, let’s talk a bit about what are meta descriptions and why they are important.
Meta descriptions (or SEO descriptions) are the short descriptions people see when they come across your content in the search results. They sell your content to potential readers.
So, it’s essential they look professional to attract more click-throughs and improve your search engine optimization.
Three important things every meta description needs to have:
- a length of no more than 160 characters
- a Call to Action (CTA)
- and your key phrase or a synonym
Nevertheless, don’t be surprised if you don’t see your meta description when conducting a search!
Sometimes Google or other search engines don’t show the description you create. I know, it’s super sad.
Instead, they might pick a portion of the text from your post or a featured snippet, depending on the search query.
Still, you should always have meta descriptions on all your posts for the times Google does indeed want to show it. And don’t worry, thanks to artificial intelligence, you don’t have to waste your time on that!
So let us see:
