    No meta description on Yahoo or Bing for client website home page


    Site = 'solvita.com'

    When you search Yahoo or Bing for keyword "solvita" [no quotes] there is no meta description appearing in the SERP listing.

    Here's what you see:

    1. solvita.com
    solvita.com
    We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us.


    But I wrote the title and description tags and they appear in the source code.

    Why are Yahoo and Bing unable to display the meta description for Solvita home page? The other webpages seem to be okay.


    Unfortunately, the client has installed Yoast on this Wordpress site and perhaps Yoast is disrupting it? Or some Robots Txt plugin the client installed? Or the WP theme, or some plugin, was not updated?

    I don't see how robots protocols have anything to do with this, but I'm trying to look under every possible stone here.

    I see this in Bing:

    'Get accurate, cost effective and easy to use respiration test kits for soil, compost, manure and grain: CO2 burst, basal respiration, SLAN - from Solvita Respiration ...'
