[resolved] [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Meta Title/Site Name showing up as Meta Description (5 posts)

    I checked the FAQ and this problem isn't addressed. My blog DOES have the wp_head() in header.php.

    To see exactly what I am referring to, Go to Google and search "site:www.chrispipermarketing.com" (without the quotes) and you will see that each page's title plus the WordPress site names shows for every meta description. I've created meta descriptions on each individual page but it looks like they are being over-written.

    Any idea what is over-writing this and how to fix? Any help is appreciated - thanks!

    Did some more digging, this is in my header.php

    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>
    	<meta name="description" content="<?php wp_title(); echo ' | '; bloginfo( 'description' ); ?>" />
    	<meta charset="<?php bloginfo( 'charset' ); ?>" />

    Looks like the description tag points to wp_title and bloginfo? What is the correct code?

    The description shouldn't be there at all, just delete that line and let my plugin do that work.

    Thanks, looking at the new source code that appears to have fixed the problem. Really appreciate you supporting your plugins!
