Support » Fixing WordPress » Google and Bing pick up garbage for home page

  • Hi,
    I recently changed my theme to a premium theme from arraythemes. I did rework the front page a bit but now both Google and Bing put garbage in the description of my website whereas before it was perfect.
    My website is va2fsq.com
    A search for my product, Win4K3Suite gives the following in Bing and Google

    .. for Elecraft Radios. Features · Panadapters · 3rd Party Integration. Close. mainheader. Featured Ultimate Control. Explore; Menu; Menu. Win4K3Suite ..

    It is listing the categories, some header info etc.
    What am I doing wrong, or what is the Theme doing wrong?
    Thanks for any help.
    Tom

    this would be a good question to ask directly of the theme developer/support team.

    Well, Array Themes says the problem comes from Yoasts. Here is a quote:

    “If your site is being optimized by the Yoast plugin, that’s where the hiccup is likely happening. The header.php file of Paperback outputs wp_head(); as expected, and this is where your site title and page descriptions are being output. SEO plugins modify wp_head(); to change the output of those titles and descriptions.”

    This is what I get on a search of va2fsq.com

    So, what’s up? I get garbage on the Google search for my website and my product. I get this whereas before Yoasts and a basic theme there was no issue. Can someone help out please?

    Thanks

    Hey Tom,

    Mike here from Array. Have you tried disabling Yoast yet and seeing what kind of results are picked up by Google/Bing?

    Well, Yoasts is disabled, and the problem is gone. All pages get indexed correctly and the right descriptions show up.
    Of course you realize, Yoasts is now Toast.
    Thanks
