    Hi guys,

    So about a month ago, one of my money site dropped in the ranking, from top of page 2 to anywhere around page 6/7. I tried to understand for a while what went down and quickly realized my root url (http://mydomain.com/) didn't appear in keyword search anymore, and first result where subpages of my domain. Although "site:http://mydomain.com/" proved that the page was not deindexed, it was nowhere to be seen in the SERP.

    Today I decided to check on this site again and try to find the main reason this page disappeared. I was quite shocked to see that when looking for my site in google, I realized the main root URL had TOTALLY different title and description from what it is supposed to be.

    I first thought it was my mistake, and that I may have modified it somehow but no. While checking http://www.seocentro.com/tools/search-engines/metatag-analyzer.html my Title + description is accurate, just not in Google. It actually take the title and description from a subpage of the site.

    i'm running on wordpress, any insight or advices are welcome.

    Is it a good result to fight for?

    Are you hacked?

    Its a few k$ a month, yeah.

    no.




    Digging deeper, I realize different search results end up with differents tags for my main page. I have things to learn that I was not aware of I guess.

    There could be a million reasons with wordpress, first check and deactivate the latest plugins you have installed. Something changed on the site recently that caused the issue.

    As an option try Yoast SEO plugin and use 'force title'
