  1. Title tag
  2. Meta Description

The title tag and your post title are usually identical to each other, except that occasionally the title tag allows you to enhance it for SEO purposes.

The meta description occasionally shows up in the SERPs under certain conditions.

And, likewise the Optional Excerpt field shows up in some situations such as in Google’s Blog search engine listings. It is an invisible field that Google and sites external to your blog are often aware of. So, everything indicates that Google is using the Optional Excerpt field to calculate your SERPs placement. Generally, the meta description and optional excerpt fields are identical.
