Meta tags doubled, what the?
I’ve got a sort of wierd problem. I’m using AIOSP since about two weeks, i’ve made a major refresh on my website so it took some time for google to index it etc.
Thing is, i’ve enabled pretty much everything apart from “rewrite titles” option and somehow the keywords and site description i’ve entered in SEO panel do show up in source file, but they’re under the main ones.
So it looks like that
<Title> Bla bla bla my site </title> <meta name="description" content=" | I like waffles." /> Then some text and <!-- All in One SEO Pack 2.1 by Michael Torbert of Semper Fi Web Design[-1,-1] --> <meta name="description" content="I like turtles" /> <meta name="keywords" content="bla, bla bla" />
I thought google’s gonna index the stuff i’ve entered in AIOSP but instead he indexed my first post on website.
Is it happening because i didn’t turn “rewrute titles” on?
Can you post the URL for your site?
The Meta Description that appears at the top of the source code is being output by your theme or another plugin. You’ll need to track down what is outputting that and remove it.
Also, you will need to configure All in One SEO Pack for Force Rewrites because it is currently not outputting your Title tag. To do this go to All in One SEO, Performance and enable Force Rewrites.
Thanks for the reply. Well seems like the meta info at the top is just a regular wordpress stuff that can be found in settings. Ill turn on rewrite option and i’ll see how it goes.
Well i still have this problem.
I cleared the meta title and description from theme settings in wordpress, so i’ve only setup those in AiOSP.
I’ve waited 2 weeks for Google to index and guess what, i can see the title but not the description. I guess keywords don’t work aswell.
When i inserted my meta description to the theme settings again, google is showing it properly…
The last time Google updated it’s index for your site was December 4th, so any changes you’ve made since then will not be showing. You’ll have to give Google more time, just because you update something doesn’t mean Google will update their index immediately, it could be weeks or even months depending on how often they crawl your site.
Also, the old meta description is still showing in your header –
<meta name=”description” content=” | ” />
You need to remove that line completely otherwise Google will read that as your meta description.
