Meta Tags Mauled (2 posts)

    We added a description meta tag directly to the header.php for http://HappinessBlog.com - you can see it with the View Page Source on Firefox or IE. I know it's there and it works with other sites.

    When you Google Happiness Blog, another description comes up after the Happiness Blog name.

    Something must be overriding the meta tag in the header.php What is it? Where is it and how would I change it?

    We don't like the current descriptions that's popping up when people Google: Happiness Blog.

    A former programer says they think they vaguely recall inputting that description somewhere (so we know its ours) but they can't remember where they did it. We recently moved HappinessBlog.com to BlueHost from 1and1 - I'm wondering if it was something left behind at 1and1 ?

    HELP, HELP!!! Many thanks!!!

    Search your database for a string of text from the improper description. You'll likely find where it's at and you can replace it.

    Alternatively, try an SEO plugin, something like All in One SEO Pack, and set your description in there.
