  • Hello,

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

    ​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:

    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:


    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.

    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.

    I have checked and as per your advice meta description is showing in classic editor too also the link you said works fine meta description and title is visible there I have requested reindex pages which are not showing meta description to google let google crawal the pages I will let you know if the problem is still there

    Thanks for your answer


    Could you please check the max-snippet limit at WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Titles & Meta > Posts?

    You should use -1 as the default and if you have changed that to 0 or something else, that could be the reason your meta description isn’t working.

    Please share your URL that doesn’t have the meta description in the SERPs so we can check what the issue might be. this is the link of the post kindly help all settings are ok on rankmath

    post is showing like this in search engines


    Did you make changes to the max-snippet field recently? The settings are fine but Google might not have seen the changes yet.

    Upon checking your URL on a 3rd party website, the meta description is showing up correctly:

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.
