Why to Add Unique Meta Description Tags to Blogger

When you search on Google, you'll find each result with a title, snippet content along with the URL. We will focus on snippet content that is what we are talking about in this post. Basically, snippet content is some piece of content, not longer than 150 characters, inside your post that Google uses as a description in their search results.

If you don't use meta description tag to your post, then Google will identify some piece of content from your post that containing the keywords, and specify the post subject which is decided by Google in random way. Google can use different snippet content as a description for same post in their search results according to the search queries.

In other words, a post snippet that clearly mentions the subject of the post, called description. If you have written a good description including your keywords, Google will always pickup that description instead of find out the snippet content from the post. If you have described post description well, it can boost your rankings and CTR (click through rate) in the search results.

I highly recommend you to add unique description manually to each indexed posts on your Blogger. You can find the duplicate pages or posts that having the same meta description via Google Webmaster Tool. Once you find, edit them and create different description by using this method.
