Google snippet not showing in SERP

  • Hello,
    first of all I apologise if am not posting my request on the right place.
    I have a problem when searching my website on Google. When showing my site on SERP, it appears only like the URL without anything else. No site title, no description.
    It happens only for my home page while I don’t have any problem with other pages.
    Thank in advance for any help.

  • Hello,

    ​Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    ​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.

    Hello and thank you for your reply.

    Up to point 4 everything is set perfectly and according to your suggestions.

    When it comes to checking if Google has cached my content though, it is for me impossible to do since my site snippet only show the URL of my site as it was the title itself and I can’t do nothing but click on it to visit the page.

    Thanks again for your support.

    Hello,

    Could you share the affected URL in the Sensitive Data section so we can try to check it for you?

    Looking forward to help you.

    Hello,

    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    I checked it for you and it seems like the last time the page was cached was the 21st of July (I added a screenshot in the Sensitive Data section).

    Looking forward to help you.

    Hello,

    thanks for your reply. I checked the google serp today and everything seems to be in its place. The snippet now appears with title and description, so I guess we can say that the problem is solved.

    Thanks again for the support!

    And great plugin by the way! Keep up the good work!
