Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Meta Description Not Truncated

  • WordPress version: 3.5
    WordPress SEO version:

    I did this: Copied and pasted entire post content into the Meta Description. Because the SEO status was “green” it was thought this was ok.

    I expected the plugin to do this: Truncate the Meta Description on the rendered page to 156 characters, and/or show an SEO status of “yellow” or “red”.

    Instead it did this: Placed the entire string in the Meta Description essentially replicating the post content.

    Additional Question: Unfortunately now Google is not indexing these posts. Would Google stop indexing posts that had a huge meta description that duplicated the post content?
