    Google not reading meta data


    Hello Friends,

    Google is not reading meta data of my webpage.
    Its shows content of my page in SERP instead of meta data.

    Can someone help me to find the solution behind it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Also know that -- AS A RULE -- Google chooses to show part of a page's content instead of your description.
    Apart from that, I don't know what you meant by "meta title".

    Actually meta title of your webpage is showing on google but not meta description. So you have to make some changes:
    1. Update Meta description
    2. cache you webpage manually once in google webmaster tool
    3. And Ping Your webpage with your title and new meta description on ping submission sites.
    4. Submit Your webpage on some major search engines

    No.

    1) Forget about the description. Make sure it looks nice and then forget about it.
    2) Do the same with your <title> element. And don't ever call that a "meta title" again.

    I did not get any issue regarding meta titles and meta descriptions on your website. When I check your website on Google it seems to be good and indexed pages shows different titles with different descriptions. It seems to be good and right on the Google.
    What others views on it after checking the URL of the website.

    Still Your website is show perfect Meta Title and Description.. I think when you update Meta Title and Description after your website can not cache so that's reason it could not display perfect title and description..

    Most of the time it's because Google thinks your tag doesn't match what the user is looking for e.g.


    if a site is about cars and your tags about teddy bears it's going to ignore the tag.


    sometimes Google can just be plain stubborn though. Make sure you also give Google enough time to crawl your new META tag before you panic

    Paul is spot on Google shows most relevant snippets in SERPs so you should add relevant title and descriptions. Also if you description doen't mach with search queries then Google ignore it and shows your content in snippet.

    Google sometimes used the open directory projects title for a page instead of the page title, and there was a <meta name="robots" content="noodp"/> tag to prevent this from happening. I’d love to see something similar for this, but it’s not there yet.
