Joomla Tags and SEO Descriptions

One of favorite aspects of using Joomla’s Tag system is the tags show up as separate search items in Google’s index. I noticed one day that the description in the search results isn’t what I would want it to be and wanted to change it. Here is an example of two different tags.

Nice long description that was pulled from the page it eventually links to.
This also links to a page but it doesn’t pull the description. You will also notice this tag is “55” and the other is “bitlocker”.

I was thinking it was because the tag was listed with a number instead of an alias; however, I found the “Bitlocker” tag that was indexed by the number; however, it shows the description I wanted.

This time the numbered tag is pulling the global configuration.

I would love to find a solution for this, so if anyone else knows feel free to comment.
