Changes made in Elementor using RankMath integration not showing

  • Hi Rankmath,

    I use the Elementor integration to do my SEO on my WordPress pages, however, I have realised that all of the changes I make in Elementor (depsite RankMath saying it’s updated my website) have not actually been taking effect.

    Also, on my mobile, both the Title AND the description are not what I saved in Elemntor. In fact, there’s even a randomly added picture which I do not want!

    Please help me to fix this as soon as possible.

  • Hello

    Thank you for contacting the support and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Assuming you are using the latest version of all the plugins, themes, and WordPress (please update if not yet), it would seem like a conflict with one of the plugins or the theme you are using.

    To determine that, please follow this troubleshooting guide:

    Only the site admin would know and your users won’t be affected by this troubleshooting.

    Looking forward to helping you.

    Hi,

    This is not working as what I need to check can only be seen when you search from Google. It cannot be seen from the backend.

    When using the Elementor-RankMath integration, RankMath tells me that my title and meta desc looks a certain way, but when I look on Google it’s different. Do you know another way I could understand why the changes RankMath say are live are not actually showing up?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Sorry for the confusion.

    ​1. First of all, I am assuming that you have already changed the SEO Meta Title and Meta Description with the help of Rank Math:
    Add a Meta Description in Classic Editor:

    Add title and description in Gutenberg:



    ​2. Then, ensure that this is the setting in the Schema tab if Rich Snippets are enabled on your website:


    ​To reiterate, the Schema title must show %seo_title% and the description should show %seo_description% – this will ensure your SEO title and SEO Description that you set up via Rank Math can also be used for your schema details:

    ​3. The next step is to check if your title/description is properly set up in the page source:

    You can use this tool for the same as well: https://www.heymeta.com/

    4. If it matches your settings, then you must check if Google has seen the changes already or not.

    For that, please check when the Google cache was updated for that page:
    a.

    b.

    If the cache date is from before adding the new meta description, then you just have to wait for Google to re-crawl and re-index the page with the new info. If the date is after you made the changes,

    ​Do note that if everything’s fine and Google still decides to show a different meta title/description for your search keyword, there is nothing you can do as Google sometimes ignores the custom meta info altogether and show something from the page’s content that matches the search intent better.

    The best you can do is optimize your meta tags to try and match the intent of the search/keyword.

    Why the search result title might differ from the page's <title> tag

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know.

    Thank you.
