Posting Articles with Preview / Google Search (2 posts)

    Hello everyone, I hope someone can help me with this as I am new with WordPress and am not 100% sure at how to fix this.

    When I post a link to Facebook, I like it to show the image as well as a brief preview of what I'm talking about, I have that down perfectly, no problems there.

    However, if you search the site on Google, it shows the most recent article in the description, rather than what I want it to show (that being an actual description).

    If I add the meta description tag to the header, when I post on Facebook, rather than having the image and brief preview like I do now, it instead shows the image and then the meta description as the preview.

    Is there a way I can have it set to show the brief preview as well as the image on Facebook, but on Google show the meta description rather than my latest post?

    Thanks!

    Use a static homepage?

    If you are using an SEO plugin or it is included with your theme review the settings for whether the site meta is used or the post meta.
