    Site description

    Ticket by khrystyne789 | August 24, 2014 | Question
    • Hello

      In my google browser as I was looking for my site, I came across a disturbing description written about my site.  ("My job as a portrait photographer is to seduce, amuse and entertain." Helmut ... Photography & Video Plus. Moon ).  I never wrote what is in the brackets.   Now I went and changed it under the Site Optimizing page to the following:  I have been taking pictures off and on since the early 90s.  My favorite shots are of subjects in sunlight and shadows, such as flowers, landscapes and buildings.  What is written in bold is what I changed it back too, and I want it to stay that way.  How long before I see that in the google browser??   Can you please get back to me on this topic?

      Thank You!

      Hi Sofia,


      Thank you for contacting the Wix support team.


      Please be aware that your page meta data is given priority over your site meta data. This allows you to use a unique title and description for each page, relevant to that page's content.


      This means that if you have filled in your home page meta data, it will be displayed in Google search results. Remember, if it is deemed weak or incomplete, Google will choose the next most relevant content on the page to display, so make sure to fill these out fully.


      Your site meta data will be used when your page meta data is blank.


      Be sure to update your home page meta data (as well as the meta data of other pages). To add/modify meta data for your site or pages please click here.


      Remember, whenever you make changes to your website, these changes need to be crawled again by search engines, such as Google, before they appear in search results.


      It can take anywhere from 1 to 3 months for Google to update its database. To speed the process you can re-submit, if you haven’t already, your website directly to Google throughhttp://www.google.com/addurl


      Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.


      Many thanks, Barrios
