Error about tag archive descriptions?

  • Hello.
    Tags are very important for my websites however many people even set noindex for tags. So I set tag archive description by Titles & Meta section to:
    “%tag% comments %sep% %term_description%”

    So I would like Google to show tags page description not just as the beginning of article, I would like also to add “tag comments |” on beginning but when I check my indexes on Google, there is no such description. Its still just the beginning of article. I mean there is no “tag comments |” on beginning.

    What I am doing wrong?

    (And my other settings for tags:

    Tag archives robots meta: Default
    Add SEO meta box: ON
    Remove snippet data: OFF

  • Hello,

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

    Could you please share one of the tag archive links affected by this on the sensitive data section so that we can dig deeper into this?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    ​Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    Please check if 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.

    If Google’s cache is updated, let us know your website URL so we can check it and see what is happening.

    This section sheds light on that:

    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.

    Hello. I would like to share it but then can I remove or edit my message since I don’t want it seem by public in future?
    (Yes, these links are already cached by Google after I made changes)

    Hi there,

    Hello,

    Thanks for the reply.

    We might need to take a closer look at the settings. Your meta description is only showing one word. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.
    Sensitive Data Section

    It is completely secure and only our support staff has access to that section. If you want, you can use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:

    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):

    I am sorry, there was a letter mistake. I’ve updated again. I’ll be waiting for your help and reply!

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I’ve modified your code to the following %term% yorumları %sep% %term_description% which does the trick on the tag pages.

    Please give this a couple of days for Google to crawl your content and update the new descriptions.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Thank you so much. I hope it will work.
