Greg's High Performance SEO
[resolved] Incompatability betwen Greg's SEO and Share and Follow plugins (3 posts)

    Greg's SEO is generating meta description content based on the "head" class generated by Share and Follow. This is the result:
    <meta name="description" content="Recommend on Facebook Share on Linkedin Tweet about it Tell a friend" />

    which is obviously not desirable. Has anyone else tried these same two plugins? Any suggestions how to get around this?

    Uh, no -- GHPSEO is generating the meta description in the following order of preference: 1) your specified meta description, 2) your specified excerpt, 3) the WordPress auto-generated excerpt, which WordPress creates by snipping off the first bit of your content. If you have not specified either 1 or 2, and some other plugin is messing directly with your post content via a filter (not the nicest way to insert things into page output...), then naturally you'll get that turning up in your head description.

    All the best,

    Thanks for the reply. I have dumped Share and Follow. Besides the stated issue here, it pollutes the <head> with an obscene amount of junk.
