I did my homework. I read the threads here in the forum. I searched Google for known issues and corrected where it applied to me. My head call is the LAST entity before the closing head tag. Yet, my meta description is not being picked up by SE's.
Yoast is great, but I have to be honest, the meta description issue is a thorn. Seems like it affects more than half of the users who work with Yoast wordpress seo.
Here's my page: geothermal heaters dot com
Most of the time, it appears that another plugin is causing issues, but a lot of people use plugins! Even WordPress SEO is a plugin. Just wish that wordpress seo "force overwrote" or killed any other instances of a meta description tag from cropping up.
Thanks for any help provided.
