var pageDescription = $('meta[name=description]').attr("content");
$('#result').html('<a href="' + pageHref + '">' + pageTitle + '</a><br />' + pageDescription + 
'<br /><span class="green">' + pageHref + '</span>');

      Thank you for your question but in order to extract the TITLE and DESCRIPTION from a remote URL you will need another script like my Meta Tag and Title Grabber
