  • Resolved EWM

    (@ewm)


    On my website Yoast seems to use the short description for the Google search results snippet ‘product’ output. The ‘Webpage’ snippet output shows the right description.

    The short description of my products is no coherent description, but more like a sum of bulletpoints, sizes and characteristics of my product.

    I want the main description (showing in the description tab) to show up in my snippet results as description. How can I force / swap this without having to change thousands of products?

    Hi,

    We apologize for the difficulties you are having with the plugin. We would like some more information.

    1. Can you confirm you are using the most recent Yoast SEO, v11.1.1? If you update, does the issue resolve?

    2. Are all your non-Yoast plugins and themes also updated?

    3. Can you confirm you are using WordPress 5.2? You can check by clicking on the W in the top left and selecting About. If you need to update, please check with your host provider. Please know that if you are using an older version of WordPress Core you may experience unexpected behavior with Yoast. This guide explains more: https://yoast.com/why-we-dont-support-old-wordpress-versions/.

    4.Can you provide a URL that highlights the issue, please?

    5. Can you confirm if you use Fetch as Googlebot that the issue is resolved? This will force Google to update the index. You may need to use it several times. This guide explains more: https://kb.yoast.com/kb/fetch-as-googlebot/.
