The Expires Meta Tag is principally used as a means to indicate to search engines a fixed date when they should remove your page from their database. If your page will expire at a preset date, it is advisable to set this tag a day or two before you plan the expiry such that search engines have time to remove you and avoid users getting an an expired document or an error.

Recommended Usage: Optional - Use if you have a preset document deletion date

I search on google and get this information

The Meta Expires tag defines the expiration date and time of the web document that is being indexed. It has been said that the Meta Expires tag is helpful for when your business is running a limited time event/offer or if there is a preset date when your web document will no longer be valid for indexing. Once you have reached the listed date, the search engines are then supposed to delete your web page from their database.
