Question by Looking4Answer: Do you know how to solve the following search engine optimization issue ?
When you go to Yahoo or Google, and search for a keyword you will see the result (a link) with a description.

Example: When you search CNN at Yahoo and Google you will get the following descriptions.

At Yahoo:
Latest headlines from CNN, the Cable News Network, including World, U.S., politics, business, entertainment, science, weather, and sports news.

At Google:

CNN.com delivers the latest breaking news and information on the latest top stories, weather, business, entertainment, politics, and more.

I would like to know how can I add a description of my site like that. Please note that I already try

But I noticed that it does not work perfectly. In others, Google does not recognize this. So, do you know how to fix this?

Google either pulls your description from the description tag if it is relevant to the search query or it pulls a string of text from your web page if that text is more relevant to the search query.

You cannot write a description tag that would anticipate all of the different ways Google will rank your site for.

Leave the description tag empty and Google will pull the relevant description from each page. However, you then forfit the opportunity to tell Google what you want them to know that is most important about that page.
