    Hey there,

    I’ve setup my site and have utilised Yoast for Google. However, when i google my site ‘cams crazy 8s’ it doesn’t display the meta properly… It seems to be grabbing the text from the FAQ section of my site ‘What is Cams Crazy 8s’ as the description. It also doesn’t display meta from the other pages that I’ve put into yoast? Have attached image.

    Is there something Im missing to get the meta to display properly?

    Hello

    Here are some of the reasons this may happening:

    Please follow the instructions from Yoast itself and let us know 🙂

    Thanks for this, but it doesn’t explain why is Google displaying the FAQ section from the Jupiter build as the meta for the first page?

    Can you confirm the jupiter x build hasnt altered the code for header etc as per below from Yoast?:
    <h2 id=”h-technical-reasons”>Technical reasons</h2>
    Sometimes, Google may show a different meta description because of technical issues with your website.
    <h3 id=”source-code”>The meta description tag is missing or broken</h3>
    If your WordPress theme doesn’t follow best practice, or if you’re using plugins which alter the contents of the <head> code in your templates, then your meta description might be missing.

    The HTML source code for your site should contain exactly one description meta tag. If the tag is missing, or if more than one appears, you may not see the preferred description in search engines. The tag should look like this:

    <code class="hljs xml"><span class="hljs-tag"><<span class="hljs-name">meta</span> <span class="hljs-attr">name</span>=<span class="hljs-string">"description"</span> <span class="hljs-attr">content</span>=<span class="hljs-string">"Preferred description goes here"</span>/></span>

    If you do not see a description meta tag, or if the tag looks ‘broken’, please follow the steps in this article.

    If you have more than one description meta tag, please run a conflict check to determine what other feature on your site outputs the duplicate description(s).

    Hello

    The Meta tag is exactly as described by Yoast see https://take.ms/cW5MV
    It is not broken and there is only one tag.

    Hi Nathanael

    Actually, those links in google search are called Sitelins and they have nothing to do with the theme or YPAST plugin, since they are picked up but google, please check this link with better details about it:
    https://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-get-google-sitelinks-for-your-wordpress-site/
    https://yoast.com/video/ask-yoast-how-to-get-sitelinks/
    By the way, this is how it appears for me: https://prnt.sc/1s0xa11

    Yes, I can confirm our theme does not affect anything in the header related to SEO and YOAST, moreover, Jupiter X is fully compatible with the YOAST and you will have no conflict with settings you made in YOAST, as proof you can check this screenshot: https://prnt.sc/1s0xpkl site title and Meta description is properly rendered on the frontend,

    Hope this helps 🙂

    Regards
