Hi Arpit, you can use this code snippet to get meta-description of a webpage:

driver = webdriver.Chrome()
driver.maximize_window()
driver.get("https://www.edureka.co/")
print(driver.find_element_by_xpath("//meta[@name='description']")).getAttribute("content"))

I am getting below error on using a similar code for og:description above.

driver.FindElement(By.XPath("//meta[@property='og:description']")).GetAttribute("content");

'no such element: Unable to locate element: {"method":"xpath","selector":"//meta[@property='og:description']"}.
Hey @jamuna, look for the page source and check if there's a <div> associated with the attribute that you have mentioned. Seems like you have specified a wrong xpath.
