Meta snippets for dummies, i.e. me



New Member
Hi guys,

Sorry to bother you all, but I've been set a task on creating a page of content for an artist, which would then link through elsewhere on the site to sell their art and (I think) I'm fine with the content side of things. However, I've been asked to:

'Add five meta snippets that convey the overall message'

I've never actually had to do this before and, despite all the YouTubing and Googling I've done, I just can't get my head around it.

PLEEEEEEEASE could someone offer me a helping hand and describe it as if an alien's just landed and wants a brief description of how to do it and what to include?

As a side, I've plonked a bit of text down below, which should give you the gist of the sort of content I'm working on. I've changed it obviously, so I'm ungoogleable!

I'd sincerely appreciate your urgent help as I need to submit it by tomorrow. Friday night I know - not really rock 'n' roll. Sorry!


Name of artist

American pop singer Katy Perry initially attempted to break into the music business with a gospel album. Her image radically changed by the time of her 2008 smash single "I Kissed a Girl," from One of the Boys, and she went on to top the charts with the follow-up albums Teenage Dream, Prism and Witness. Perry is also known for her performance during the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show, her marriage to comedian Russell Brand and her selection as a judge for American Idol.

Katy Perry's albums (ripped from wikipedia!)

American singer KP has released five albums, one live one, two (EP),34 singles (including four as featured artist). Perry has been certified for 101 million digital singles and 6 million albums in the United States. She is also the fifth best selling digital singles artist in the US. Throughout her career, Perry has sold over 18 million albums and 125 million singles globally. She currently holds the record for most 5-million-selling singles in the United States, with six of her singles selling over 5 million Perry also holds the record for the most 6-million-selling songs, with three of her songs—"Firework", "Roar", and "Dark Horse"—selling over 6 million copies. All three have also received Diamond song certifications from the RIAA, making her the first artist to accomplish such a feat.

Many thanks in advance if anyone could help - I'd really appreciate it!
