Default Why My Meta Description Is Not Getting Updated?

Hi Friends,

I added few pages in the website, and optimized it. If I copy and paste URL in Google search, Google is taking the random description for page. After clicking on the link when I go to page source I am not able to see meta description in the page source as well.

I request forum members to please share some solution for this problem.

Default Meta Description Issue

Hi Jeniffer,

I am little bit surprised after knowing such issue. I think, you should check your web page from admin panel and make sure that your meta description is showing there. It not, then it is confirmed that your meta description hadn't updated.

Please share screenshot so I can check further.

Have you really added the Meta description in the pages which you have optimized? Check the source code ones again. If you updated it will surely shown in Google by some means. if not Google will randomly show the meta description which is taken from the available content in that page.

Yes, I have added the meta description. I am having one concern, am I facing this problem because that page is new, And after some point of time, this issue will get resolved?
