Why my Titles and Descriptions don't appear in SERPs?

7 replies
I have a Wordpress site and use Yoast SEO plugin to update my Meta information for the search engines. I see something is over-writing my Title & Description. How do I fix this?

Below is the code I think is over-writing my Title & Description:

<link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//s.w.org' />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="ipchealth-test &raquo; Feed" href="https://ipchealth.in/feed/" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="ipchealth-test &raquo; Comments Feed" href="https://ipchealth.in/comments/feed/" />

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thank you,
Vishal

    Hello,

    I'm sure there is a problem with your WordPress code for adding feeds. instead try using the following code:

    Within Yoast, there is a snippet you can edit for each post. That should solve your problem.

    Please, open the web page HTML code and try to find tags like in example below.
    If you can find this tags and they have expected content, that means that nothing overrides title and description.
    In addition, Google can ignore your title and description. It can decide that title and description are irrelevant to the page. So, make sure this two tags contain not too long relevant content.

    <title>Webpage title</title>
    <meta name="description" content="Web page description">

    What do you mean by this? How do you submit your "sitemap" for Search engines to crawl? is this a function on WordPress?
    I have already checked the setting in my wordpress dashboard to allow Search engines to see my site, however I am not sure if there is more I have to do?

      I thinks it is about Google Webmaster Tools. Here you can find special page where you can submit sitemap. If you do not use such tool, it is time to start

    Check whether your page got indexed by a search engine or not. Proper Indexed pages appear with title and meta description at the search engine result page !!
