It means what is says, that you the user can add your own meta tags that aren't already generated by the program.
See the following examples below, what these do is to tell the users browser not to cache the content of the page/site so each visit to the page is fresh and not calling old content.

Code: Select all

<meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache" />
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" />
There are a ton load more but only you can decide what is relevant to your needs...

BF - silly question, how does the expiry tag affect cache? Can this be used instead to ensure fresh content is loaded every time the page is visited? And how does this affect page speed (load times) and seo that are constantly at war with each other?

Maybe this will help
how does the expiry tag affect cache?
By setting it to 0 you are telling the browser to check for fresh content each visit.
Can this be used instead to ensure fresh content is loaded every time the page is visited?
Yes see previous answer.
And how does this affect page speed (load times) and seo that are constantly at war with each other?
By using any of them it can effect load times. Lets say you use no cache what you are then telling the browser and your PC is to not to save any information about the page. This then means that on the next visit the browser has nothing to compare with on your PC's cache so will need to download again.
The advantage of using expires 0 is as mentioned prior the user will always get fresh content if for talking sake you have updated the page. As for SEO there should be no effect as Google will still crawl and index your site/pages as normal just as if you have or haven't used them.
