The document's head contains elements with useful information about the current page and/or the website.

Search engines are often interpreting the head's elements in order to index and store information about the page correctly.

The <head> element is the container for other head elements.

These elements are:

  • <title> element (document's title)
  • <meta /> element (document's description, keywords and other information)
  • <base /> element (default path and/or default target of all links on a page)
  • <link /> element (relationship between a document and external resource)
  • <style> element (container for internal styling of a page)
  • <script> element (defines a client side script)
