Fix Duplicate Meta Description Tag

This is a quick step to the heaving error that caused the problem for most of you. Hundreds of time I was thinking and thinking when I was beginner that why my blogger page is showing meta description two times and also Webmaster Tools show me that same error that Meta Description error for duplicate. If you look at the source file of your blog after that it will show you two meta description on the same page. One under <head> tag and one right across the title tag. This is an example of multiple meta tag for the description displayed when blogger introduced Search preference last year offering dynamic blogspot users to enter information for each post they publish. This option you will find in the Blogger post editor like “Search Description” in right side of post editor.
