[resolved] SEO Title and Meta Description in WooCommerce problem (10 posts)

    The SEO Title and Meta Description are not being inserted into WooCommerce 'base shop page'. There are no problems with the individual product pages.
    Can anyone advise please ?

    I've found the answer.

    The shop base page is a 'Product-archive'. The WP SEO Title and Meta settings for the 'shop page' do not function.
    However for the solution: Look under the Post Types tab and scrolling to the bottom under "Custom Post Type Archives" is a note "instead of templates these are the actual titles and meta descriptions for these custom post type archive pages".

    There you'll find 'Products' (i.e. the products-archive)and the meta boxes for Title and Description

    Thanks for finding the solution youself. Yoast doesn't want to fix this because he thinks you shouldn't have multiple meta descriptions on pagination pages.

    But this worked for me so thanks!

    Thanks for the answer. I've been trying to fix this for some while. There's 2 problems left: the description appears only on the first page of my shop. The title is on all pages but the description for page 2,3,etc is blank.

    You can verify by visiting creartiv3.eu/galerie-arta-online

    Also, having the exact same title on multiple pages is not a good idea for ranking in Google. How could I include in the title the page number?

    Thank you.
