Description of website when I link the URL (3 posts)

    Whenever I link the homepage of my blog on say Facebook, it seems to always post my recent blog post as the description for my blog. I know this is kind of a lame question, but how do I set up a permanent description when I link the homepage? If I link a post it works just fine, seems to be just my homepage I need help with. Please help me out because I'm not seeing where to do this at. The site is Daniel Meyer Blog.Com

    Thank you so much!

  2. Try putting in a meta description to your theme's header.

    Though Facebook is really techy about that :/

    Daniel,

    What I would recommend is installing an SEO plugin:
    WordPress SEO by Joost is a superb option.

    Once you install this plugin, you have the ability to set a homepage description in the SEO settings.

    That way, when you link from Facebook or other sharing websites they can pick up your homepage meta description.

    It'll help you out a lot too once you install and configure the WordPress SEO plugin :-)
