My website designed in Google Sites has a section for tech tips, for example (Novel Tech Aust). When I paste a link of these tips into Google+ or my facebook page Facebook the description that accompanies them is my entire web site description rather than a short excerpt from the page. How do I rectify this?

I was hoping they would appear as my blog which I also post to Facebook and Google+.

You need to make sure the meta description for the page contains what you want them to use.

You have probably set one meta description that every page on your website is using.

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

I've not got a blogger website so I'm not sure if how you can edit the meta description.

When adding a blog post are their any extra options labelled something like description/summary/snippet?

Not Blogger, Google Sites. They are different. I have a Blogger site and it works fine.

After much research I'm pretty sure it's not possible in Google Sites although they are bringing out a feature that allows you to enter custom Javascript and CSS, but still doesn't let you get at page META TAGS/Data.
