Support » Fixing WordPress » Search in Google returns only the Title of site and Footer links in description

  • I have already posted this in the miscellaneous section, but have found no body interested in replying … and hence am posting it over here.

    Can someone please throw a little bit of light on this one?


    I have recently started blogging in a site with software. I had posted some posts and now when I search my blog on google, it displays my site as either 6-8 th position on the first page. But the only issue I have is with the description it gives to my post.

    I am talking about my blog at

    type explain stuff in google and it is shown as 8th result. But if you see the explanation or description, you only get:

    Explain Stuff
    Explain Stuff · New facinating fact of the day – …. Copyright © 2009 Explain Stuff All rights reserved. Amazing Grace theme by Vladimir

    I see that for some reason, it only detects the site title, logo and the footer links.

    Can someone explain me why the bots won’t show my description I put in the SEO plugin or custom fields?
    I am seeing all other pages and tags I have and the description for them. This issue is only with the first page… the HOME page. Has anybody else encountered this kind of issue before? Please let me know what you did. If you have not encountered this issue before, please do let me know what you think I should do. I am completely lost. But am sure the explanation/description the spiders got from my site or atleast are displaying is not too appealing to attract any user.
