    Some of the Google results show a post with the right title and url BUT when it comes to meta description, the only thing that is shown are the post title that YARP is showing on that very post. EX.:

    post title : MY NEW POST
    url: http://www.mywebsite.com/mynewpost
    YARP result on that page MY BRAND NEW POST
    POST FROM LAST WEEK
    WHATEVER POST YOU CAN THINK OF

    Then
    Google result pages will show http://www.mywebsite.com/mynewpost
    Meta description: MY BRAND NEW POST - POST FROM LAST WEEK - WHATEVER POST YOU CAN THINK OF

    That is it, nothing else. Which mislead and confuse everyone

    Thanks

    It doesn't sound like a YARPP issue, but more of a META tag issue. Would you send me a link to the Google results page?

    Google doesn't show the META description on search results page. Instead, it shows an excerpt from your post that matches the search string. Since your string was "Cover Your Grey for Women Professional Touch Up Stick," it pulled the YARPP content and displayed it.

    However, if you search for a different term, such as "Effective Hair Removal," you'd get a different blurb:
