I just switched over to using the Yoast plugin a few weeks back.
All of my title/meta descriptions are displaying properly except that I can’t stop the date from showing in search results.
Under “title settings,” I ticked the “Force rewrite titles” box and entered the tag %%excerpt%% for the meta description template; for both posts and pages. I made sure everything was saved properly, that was 2 weeks ago.
The post date is showing up is serps for posts only, not pages.
If you Google the search term–PROBIOTICS BRANDS– (from the US), my post from the domain intestinaldysbiosis.com is the first result.
You’ll see the date displayed (which I want to get rid of). It was last cached on Dec. 16th.
And modifications I made to the title tag and meta description are updated. The capital letters and the >> in the title are an example. I also changed the first letter of each word to capitals in the meta description.
So I’m sure the meta description has been updated. And I only made those changes a few days ago and they are showing. I tried to remove the post dates over 2 weeks ago.
I’m not very tech savvy, so if I’m missing something dumb, then I apologize. 🙂
I’m using the Suffusion theme.
Btw, just wanted to say thanks for this great plugin. Definitely better than All in One.
