Support » Fixing WordPress » Pages with short meta descriptions

  • Hello, Could someone please help me understand why my images are described as duplicate meta description pages in Google Webmaster Tools?

    When I upload an image to my WP library it is automatically recognized as a page rather than simply an image???

    GOOGLE WEBMASTER TOOLS
    Pages with short meta descriptions
    1. [image] Decorative Scales of Justice in the library 1622 ‎/?attachment_id=1622‎
    2. [image] Logo Twin Cities served 1424228214242105 ‎/contact/twin-cities-served-logo1424228b2ab14242ac10b5/

  • WordPress automatically creates an “attachment_id” link that allows you to see all Media Library content linked to that specific page or post. These links are usually hidden unless inserted as a link from an image on a post or page via the “Attachment Display Settings → Link To” option. For more information, please review: Inserting_Images_into_Posts_and_Pages

    If you are using a SEO plugin, many provide the capability to block Google from indexing the attachment_id pages. For example, the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin has such capability. If you are not using a SEO plugin, you may want to consider setting one up: http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=seo

    (Note: I’m not recommending Yoast, I’m just pointing out one of the options available).

    That is helpful. Thank you very much Chris.
