          What if Bloggers didn’t use Meta Description

          If you don’t have a meta description for your website then users can’t understand what’s the niche of your website other than from your website name and its URL. 
          If your blog posts don’t have meta description then google and other searches pull some of the sentences from your article (mainly the starting sentence) and displays as Meta tags which may not help you in getting clicked by the users. 
          It’s okay, not to use meta description when your article covers several different main queries because your article may appear on SERP for different queries and when your article have a default META tag, it may appear the same for all other different queries, which may lead users to not click on your website.
