Meta data and Open Graph meta data in Google (have you tested this?)

by Georgina   Last Updated August 11, 2018 10:04 AM

I have a site which is using both an OpenGraph meta description property:

<meta property="og:description" well a bog standard Meta description property:

<meta name="description" content= 

The meta descriptions are exactly the same and the meta description isn't displaying correctly in Google. There is currently no meta tag implemented blocking Google from the OpenGraph dup description:

<meta name="robots" content="NOODP">

There could be a number of reasons why this is happening (tag may not be descriptive enough, tag may be too similar to others on the site) but I'm still new to this, and I can't find an exact categorical 'no' answer...

So, does anyone have experience of this - could it be one of the reasons why it's not displaying correctly - because there is technically duplicate meta's on the page and OpenGraph isn't blocked to the engine? ..and so is the best implementation to have only one, or block the search engine from seeing the open graph property.
