    Does anyone know how to change the default wordpress greeting:

    Howdy. Welcome to <Site name>!
    Thanks for dropping by! Feel free to join the discussion by leaving comments, and stay updated by subscribing to the RSS feed. See ya around!

    ?

    I found out that this is displayed when the page is listed in a Google search result, and I would like people to read some with more relevance to my site.

    I absolutely love WordPress but this would be a nice thing to be able to change easily.

    I looked for a solution in the forum but didn't find it. Sorry if I missed it.

    Are you sure this doesn't belong in the wordpress.COM support forum? I have never seen any such thing on a self-hosted wordpress site.

    That greeting is hard coded into the "Pixeled" themes. Just open the theme file and change it to whatever you like.
