    For some reason none of my meta descriptions that I have placed in every page is showing up. All I see is <meta name="description" content="">

    Any ideas why?
    Thanks!

    I bet it's your theme that comes with an empty meta description... Check your theme's header.php.

    It looks to me that it is in here.

    <head>
    
    	<!-- Meta Info -->
    	<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />
    	<meta name="description" content="<?php bloginfo('description'); ?>">

    Is this the correct code? I am really starting to move up in organic rankings now and would love for my descriptions to be in those cached pages :)

    Thanks for your help!

    Yeah you have to remove that meta description line from your theme entirely.

    Excellent, is there anything else I should look out for? I will back things up and try this out today.

    Did you just remove the second line? or the whole thing?
