    google doesn't display meta descprition template, nor the meta description entered on the page itself. Instead it displays the tagline under general settings. Any idea what could be wrong?

    I'm having a similar problem when posting the link to facebook for a post on my blog. In the past I would fill in that meta description tag, and facebook would see that and put that in as the description of the page when posting to facebook. I believe Google does something similar.

    This is DEFINITELY a change with the lastest version. I just updated to the latest version of WordPress SEO this week and since then, I've seen this new behavior. We need to get this fixed ASAP as it's going to affect SEO for our site.

    Well meta description is not of very high importance after the recent updates from Google. You need to fill in all in one seo description properly if you are using wordpress. The recent updates have kind of given new definitions to the age old question of what is seo. Many good sites went down along with bad ones, specially the ones who relied mostly on meta description and did keyword stuffing in there.
