Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Titles and descriptions never changed in google
4 years, 4 months ago
Ive been using this plugin for a month or 2 and went through and changed all my titles and all my descriptions, when I do a site search using google like:
I get all my pages and what google has indexed and I have never seen my titles or descriptions ever change. What am I doing wrong?
For the curious…
Since no one obviously has an answer for me.
I am using an “elegant themes” theme. They put their own coding in the <title> tag and also put in their own PHP for description, keywords, all that stuff.
checking the “force rewrite page titles” did not work. It will not over write what elegant themes is calling.
I had to open up header.php and replace:
<title><?php elegant_titles(); ?></title>
<?php elegant_description(); ?>
<?php elegant_keywords(); ?>
<?php elegant_canonical(); ?>
<title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>
and you can uncheck the “force rewrite page titles” option.
Hope it helps for you sometime. Cheers!
CORRECTION: after changing the PHP coding, you do need to click the “force rewrite page titles”.
