How long does it take for Google to register a new title tag and meta description?

If they don't register it, do you keep rewording it until they do?
#description #meta #tag #title
  • It depends. To ensure it gets crawled fast, you should fetch that URL through Google Search Console website.

    If your site's content is unique and catchy then it may takes 1 or 2 days. sometimes it may take longer than a week, it's important to fetch that URL through webmaster tools after making any updates or changes

    It usually takes 2-3 days but I recommend you to perform some Off-page activities for the pages for which you have changed the Meta-Tag and it will definitely index your Meta to get the most profitable results.

    Ok, thanks, looks like everybody's on the same page here.

    So, once I fetch the page through Google Search Console, what if Google doesn't use the Page Title / Meta Description I've written?

    From what I've read, this information should invite users to click on the link w/out being too salesy.

    I'm also not sure what the benefit is to writing unique Titles/Descriptions for each page if Google doesn't always use them.

  • Its usually in google hands I had a website for which I changed the title and meta and its been 8 months and still they are not updated though I am still ranking over position #4(dropped from #2) but it should be kept in mind that website got hit by a manual spam penalty.

    Like others have said, it should just be a day or two max. Install Google Search Console, and fetch your changed pages manually. Normally once I do this they are updated within Google within an hour or two.

  • Make sure you have google search console is attached to your site. GSC is how google sees your website and then submit your meta title and meta description. it will fetch metas quickly maybe 24-hours max.
