All in One SEO Pack
Last post shows up instead of homepage title, description in Facebook (3 posts)

    My website is http://grantjkidney.com

    When I share the homepage of my site on Facebook, my last post's title is displayed rather than the homepage title. The same occurs when searching my site on Google-- the last post is displayed rather than my site's description. Why is this?

    I've noticed that the meta title and description that I filled in via the all in one seo pack settings are non-existent when viewing the source to my site. I've since manually entered some meta data into my header.php to counter-act this problem.

    My search ranking has significantly gone down over the past months because of this issue. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Would having a title and description in the All in One SEO plugin as well as embedded in my header.php cause some kind of conflict in terms of search engine ranking?

    Grant,

    There's no guarantee that Facebook or Google will use your homepage title or description; it is treated as a suggestion, and sometimes they do use it, but not always. I see metadata for both on your site, but of course I can't tell if that's coming from All in One SEO Pack or manually entered in. I wouldn't suggest putting it in manually or duplicating it, although I doubt Google would have a problem with it. Another person recently reported similar problems; are you using WP Minify?
