A small efficient actor that loads a web page, parses its HTML using Cheerio library and extracts the following meta-data from the <HEAD> tag, such as page title, description, author etc.

The code examples below show how to run the Actor and get its results. To run the code, you need to have an Apify account. Replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> in the code with your API token, which you can find under Settings > Integrations in Apify Console. Learn more
