Blogger description confusions

Blogger, like the language confusions have one more confusion with respect to Blog description. We have two descriptions setup in Blogger.

  1. Blog display description.
  2. Blog search description.
Display Description is the description that appears when you visit your blog in the header under your blog title. For example, you could see the description of my blog,
This blog helps with Blogger tips, tricks and troubleshooting.
Under the Blog title - How to Blog?
 This description is available in the following location of Blogger,
Settings > Basic > Description



Search description is the description that is made available on code. The open graph meta tag. This one appears only on the code and in turn in search and sharing descriptions. My blog search description is
Blogger tips, tricks & issues


When I share my blog URL on a social networking site, this is the description I see.

This description settings can be found at,
Settings > Search Preferences > Meta tags > Description

It could also be disabled if you have never turned this description on. You'll have to enable it.

Now go to settings and change the description as  you wish.

It went as,
Thanks and Regards,
HIS NAME
HIS BLOG URL Probably it was so difficult for TCs to make him go away as I happened to see him for months, spamming in the forum and one fine day he disappeared and never returned.

I happened to find him and interview him which I am writing down here,
