Meta description can be considered a summary description of the site content. Compared with the meta title tag is considered less important. However, meta description can sometimes attract more viewers title. Therefore the optimum we can not ignore the advantages of meta description.
In the html source, meta description is written in the following structure:
<Meta name = "description" content = "...">
Part ... in content will be replaced by a summary of the site.
Not always snippet also comply with meta description. Sometimes Google feels your description irrelevant or inappropriate, Google will retrieve any content in the site that it is best to do snippet. Or also the case under the description snippet will show that you register in the ODP (Open Directory Project - DMOZ: is a collection of website directories by industry sector, region ...).

I want to share my experience in creating effective meta description  :D
1. Don’t overlook them
This may seem self-explanatory, but it’s easy for meta descriptions to land on the “nice-to-have” list when preparing a site for launch (since they don’t actually factor into the algorithm used by most search engines for ranking websites.) Writing effective meta descriptions is neither difficult nor particularly time-consuming, and making the effort to create them will pay off exponentially for your site’s search engine presence !-!

2. Keep them between 150 and 160 characters
Without a defined meta description tag, search engines will find text in the content of the page for the description (which may or may not be a good representation of your site.) Additionally, this filler text will get snipped at around 160 characters, which could make it unclear. Keeping your meta description between 150 and 160 characters will ensure that you maximize the space available and avoid having your text cut off.  :))

3. Utilize (but don’t abuse) important keywords
Google (and most other major search engines) will bold search queries in the title and description of websites that appear in the search results. Because of this, it’s a good idea to incorporate targeted keywords (and your location, if relevant) into your meta descriptions - if a word or phrase in your description matches the original search, the bold terms will likely catch the eye of the searcher :P

Meta-descriptions play a big role in search results. In case you're unfamiliar with the term, a meta description is the snippet of information below the link of a search result. Its purpose is to describe the contents of the page to the searcher. The end goal is to convince and persuade the searcher to click through to your website. Any words that match the search term are bolded in the description.

The meta description attribute (sometimes called a "tag") is a largely undervalued facet of search engine marketing.

A meta description is an HTML and XHTML element that describes your page to search engines. While the perceived (and real) importance of meta data has depreciated, the attribute still plays a significant role in SEO rankings.
