  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for the inconvenience caused by this.

    Please follow these steps:

    1. First of all, 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:
    meta in classic

    Add title and description in Gutenberg:
    meta in gutenberg

    2. Then, ensure that this is the setting in the Schema tab if the Schema Markup module is enabled on your website:
    schema values

    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:
    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. cache
    b. cached

    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, then you just have to wait it out and there is no further input needed from your end.

    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.

    Here are some of the common reasons Google might not use the meta description you provided:
    The meta description is not relevant or useful (ie, just a collection of keywords).
    The exact same meta description is provided across a large number of pages.
    The meta description doesn’t match what the user is searching for, but other content on the page does.

    There is a whole article dedicated to this on SearchEngineJournal:
    https://www.searchenginejournal.com/google-offers-suggestions-for-avoiding-meta-description-rewrites/359884/

    Here is an example showing Google changes title depending on the keyword used:
    description
    &
    description 2

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

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

    Unfortunately

    the problem was not solved

    Hello,

    Can you share the affected URL so we can check it on our end? You may add this info in the Sensitive Data section.

    Looking forward to helping you.

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    Attention :

    I am using elementor

    Hello,

    I checked our site and:

    1. You site is set to noindex

    2. You have not set any meta description for your pages and therefore Google is picking the meta that feels relevant for your page.

    I have attached screenshots in the sensitive section, please check.

    Looking forward to helping you.

    Yes, I set that page to noindex
    Because it’s a “soon” page.

    But look at the other page, which will be the main one

    thank you

    Hello,

    You can confirm the correct meta is set by checking your page source. This can be further verified even by other third party tools as shown below:

    1. HeyMeta

    2. MetaTags.io
    img2
    3. Google Simulator

    Please check when your page cache was last updated on Google as shown in the previous reply. You should also note that Google sometimes ignores the custom meta info altogether and show something from the page’s content that matches the search intent better.

    Here are some of the common reasons Google might not use the meta description you provided:
    – The meta description is not relevant or useful (ie, just a collection of keywords).
    – The exact same meta description is provided across a large number of pages.
    – The meta description doesn’t match what the user is searching for, but other content on the page does.

    Could not using the html tag
    In elementor
    correctly

    My site does not appear correctly on Google

    https://prnt.sc/xhxq10

    Hello,

    Thank you for following up.

    I’ve checked the page you have provided in the screenshot, and it seems that the description is still not matching in Google search results. However, if you check in https://www.heymeta.com/, it’s already set up in your HTML tags as well.

    In this case, you just have to give Google some time to re-crawl and re-index the page with the new information. You just have to wait it out, and there is no further input needed from your end.

    I hope that helps. Thank you, and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need further assistance.

    The page has been archived on Google,

    But the page description in Google still appears random and incorrect.

    I’m so tired of it,

    Could the problem be caused by the elementor page builder

    https://prnt.sc/xiqd0e

    I own a lot of sites

    I only encounter this problem if I create the page via Elementor from scratch.

    As for when importing a ready-made template from the Astra theme
    Do not face this problem

    Hello,

    That is quite weird and it is not something we can definitively relate to Rank math.

    It might be that the pages you build using templates have have their content not completely accessible to SEO algorithms making it hard for Google bots to use the content as the description where else when building your own pages, the content is all shown to crawlers making it easy for Google algorithms to optionally pick your page content if it matches the search term better than your custom meta.

    Let me know if this makes sense to you.

    Thank you.

    I do not know

    I suspect the problem will soon be resolved

    I’ll wait another two days

    Hello,

    Let us know how this goes after giving Google some time to recrawl your website changes.
