    Hey everyone. I have a small question i'd like to ask about Blogger.

    If you go to a Blog's Dashboard --> Settings.

    The first setting you find the Basic settings and there you can add a description. I have noticed that the description added here appears on a search result under your Blog's title.

    However, if you go on the Search Preferences option in the settings, there is a Meta Tags description to be added as well.

    I tried looking around for a difference between those two, but didn't find anything. I know that the Meta Tags are important for search engines and other social networking sites, but what is the difference between the basic description and the mega tags description in this case??
