How To Change Blogger Meta Tag Description Correctly Tutorial


Here is a quick guide on how to change your Blogger description meta tag correctly.

Sometimes ago, I changed this blog description from: "Frequently asked tech questions with jargon-free answers" to "Your computer and Internet problems stop here".

But Google search results kept showing the old blog description: "Frequently asked tech questions with jargon-free answers", as shown below.

So, what went wrong?

What I did was, I just changed my blog description over at the Basic Settings.

And I also manually added the new blogger meta tag description via "Edit HTML" at Theme.

So, I thought that was it.

When I checked the "View Page Source", it showed both blog descriptions, as shown below.
