  • Hi Matthew,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    Of course. We are always here to help.

    Please check your page on this SDTT tool:
    https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/u/0/

    Then, share a screenshot of the issues you are seeing. Better still, share a link of the page with issues so we can check and offer a solution.

    We look forward to hearing back from you.

    Actually, a new issue has come up, Google is ignoring the meta description for all my pages setup with RankMath. Why are they ignoring my meta descriptions and using the first paragraph on the page instead?

    In terms of the Schema Structured Data, I have setup all the Local SEO for organization and all the Social Meta but RankMath is not including any of it on any of the actual blog pages.

    Edit: I have just tested my blog home page using the Google Structured Data Testing Tool and can confirm all the local and social meta is not there, and the URL being supplied by RankMath for the Blog structured data entry is incorrect.

    Quite a few major issues going on with my website. Please help me fix these

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I have run a test on your site and your social meta and local SEO seem fine from my end.
    As for the missing meta description, would you mind sharing a link and the expected description so we can check further.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Okay, can you send a screenshot highlighting in the source code where I can see the social and local meta. I have gone through the source code several times and do not see it.

    Here is a link to the source code for one of my blog pages https://snipboard.io/TUfmqi.jpg
    This is the start and end of all the code RankMath adds.
    I can only see meta for the articles, not any local or social meta. Please point out where you found this meta data. I have also run my page through the Google Structured Data tool which confirms there is no social or local meta on my website.

    And I did provide a link. Open the 2020 web design trends article link. Look at the source code to see the set meta description, then go to Google and search site:mbcreative.ca/blog/web-design-trends-2020 and you will see that it is displaying the first paragraph on the page as the meta description instead of the set meta description

    Also, have noticed another issue. I have noIndex checked off for pages but Google is indexing all the blog pages.

    Another issue….I just tested my blog using the Google Structured Data Tool again. Can confirm again there is no local or social meta. And also have noticed the URL being provided is incorrect.

    Is someone going to provide support here? This is causing a major issue with SEO and my traffic has dropped significantly

    Does anyone actually support this plugin????? This is crazy

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    Please help!

    Hi Matthew,

    Apologies for the delay.

    1). I have taken a second look and indeed the local SEO schema is missing from Rank Math header section. Could you please head over to Rank Math > Dashboard and check to confirm that the Local SEO module is enabled?
    I have also noted that you are manually injecting the local SEO on the header section.
    The social OG tags are however present on the head section as shown below:

    I have checked the Google cache and the meta description does not seem to exist within it at the moment, the search engine will be able to pick up the updated description in the coming days.

    Thank you.

    Local schema is enabled, and sorry but this really didn’t answer much.

    What about the social schema as well?

    Why is that the meta descriptions were all fine until a few days ago? I will wait the few days but I have a gut feeling there will be no change.

    What about noIndex being checked for Pages but it’s still indexing all the pages? Ironically, it wasn’t indexing the pages before but this issue started the same time the meta descriptions got messed up.

    What about the wrong URL in my structured data for Blog? It’s showing the URL as https://mbcreative.ca/blog/blog. We have addressed this issue for everything else as the actual URL users land on is https://mbcreative.ca/blog. Have even set the canonical URL on the page for Blog but it still is wrong in the structured data.

    Hi Matthew,

    Can you please check when the Google cache was updated for that page?
    1. https://i.rankmath.com/9q6X0H
    2. https://i.rankmath.com/R8N0Uh

    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, the next step is to check if your title/description is properly set up in the page source:
    3. https://i.rankmath.com/HwXR1o

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

    If it matches your settings, there is nothing else you can do as Google shows the title/description tag according to the search intent.

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

    This section sheds light on that:

    “Why the search result title might differ from the page’s tag” </p> <p>About the <code>blog/blog</code> being present – can you please check your settings at WordPress Dashboard > Settings > General?</p> <p>If that doesn’t work, we might need to take a closer look at the settings.
