Search results of my website displays last post as the site description

  • My website’s description in the settings says:

    Tweaks, Tips and Software for your Windows PC

    But when someone searches for PC Tweakers on Google or any other search engine, they get a different site description which seems to be the last post I made on my WordPress website and not the actual description I have setup.
    it appears like this:

    How can I fix this please?

    My website: http://pctweakers.net

    A setup by step guide would be highly appreciated

  • Anyone here on this site?

    This forum seems dead

    If you don’t want that to happen you should create a static front page. Otherwise when you search you will get the first few lines from your site, which incidentally happen to be the first few lines of your latest post.

    Static front page?

    A quick step by step guide would be highly appreciated

    Thanks

    There is a tutorial on the WordPress Codex itself: http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page

    I’m not sure if this will work, but there are plugins available on the WordPress.org to do search engine optimization (SEO). The one I’m using is called “All in One SEO,” and it seemed to be extremely popular, if I remember right. I haven’t tested it yet to see if it sends proper descriptive text to search engines, but it might be worth a shot.

    Good luck!

    the site is already using the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin and a meta description.

    that is where the WordPress influence ends.

    however, a 8 word long meta description on the front page is possibly a bit too short; and at the end it is down to the individual search engine what they pick to show in the search results.

    maybe ask at a SEO forum how to optimize what to use on front pages …
