Purpose – The aim of the present research is to do an overview on the concept of the meta‐tag in order to determine its applicability in indexing current documents of the world wide web. Design/methodology/approach – Quantitative and qualitative aspects of the meta‐tag literature and, if necessary, the related part of the metadata literature were reviewed to explore the type and approach of the researches in these areas of studies. By using the literature review method, 30 articles were studied and categorized into three classes including theoretical, measurement and evaluative studies. Findings – A paradoxical feature was observed which reflects a disagreement among researchers. Originality/value – The paper concludes that the meta‐tag is still a matter of opinion and more studies are needed in this area of research.
