    The way I usually do it isn't working for some reason. Usually I would add the following code:
    <meta name="My awesome site is better than the rest, CLick ME!" content="My Description" /> into the header of my theme but for this one site its not working. I usually add it to the last line right before the </head> tag. How do you guys add a meta description for your site's homepage?

    Keyword here is homepage, I'm not asking how u guys do it for inner pages, thats totally different. Thanks in advance

    If you have Yoast SEO or any seo plugin, there should be an option to set your homepage meta description.

    Ya bro I'm trolling. 12:57 pm on a Saturday afternoon and I'm on an internet forum trolling users.

    I'm gonna ask a dumb question and when users give me a serious answer, I'm gonna just laugh at them because they answered my question. Dumbasses right?

    I prefer simply SEO Ultimate.
    SEO -> Meta Descriptions -> Blog Homepage

    Theres a reason I stated I'm looking to edit Homepage description. Yoast will allow you to add a description for a certain post myblog.com/certain-post, not for myblog.com

    Everyone trying to help, its appreciated.

    Actually you don't have to say anything.

    Its a simple question, you can answer it or choose to ignore. But posting,

    "WOW!

    SMH! just had to say something"

    You sound very zesty my friend.

    Wow!Omg!Smh!No Way!

    Take off the makeup bro

    Use a plugin as suggested. Aside from that, the manual way you're doing it is wrong.
    Instead of;
    <meta name="My awesome site is better than the rest, click ME!" content="My Description" />
    You should be donig this;
    <meta name="description" content="My awesome site etc..." />

    Basically the name should be "description" ...

    A solution is to install the awesome WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast. Once installed click on SEO > Titles and Meta > Home and edit your homepage metadata there.
