I have a problem with WordPress SEO by Yoast.
My homepage meta description keeps changing in Google SERPS to an excerpt from the latest blog post. I want it to have a fixed meta description that doesn't change. I have set up the Site Title and Meta Description and tags in the top section of Title Settings.
I have the post metadescription set to %%excerpt%% which is fine for the post search engine result, but why is my homepage meta description also adopting this?
For example, say my site is about pens, I want my homepage meta description in google serps to be:
"The best blog about pens, with the latest news and great deals".
But it is actually an excerpt from the latest blog post:
"...it's a really nice pen to use, and glides effortlessly over the paper..."
Hope this makes sense.
Thanks in advance.
