    Hello everyone,

    Yesterday I changed my frontpage from my Wordpress site to a Page (static page).
    As I look in the SERPs, the META description of my website changed to the first two sentences of my website.

    I use the All In One SEO-plugin, and set the META description at the Home description in the plugin page, and also at the Page (which is the static homepage).

    The Title of the homepage stays the same, but the META description changed. It looks like there is no META description anymore, as Google picks the first 2 sentences of my website.

    Does anybody know how I can get the META description back?

    I also used the "site:http://www.mywebsite.com" in Google, but I don't see the right META.

    Thanks!

    If you navigate to All Pages and then choose the Page which is set to the homepage, scroll down and fill in all the SEO data for that page, it will be picked up by Google and show your description when it gets crawled again.

    Takes a few days for it to change.

    Thanks for the quick responses!
    I changed the SEO data for that page this evening, so I'm waiting for Google to notice.

    Keep you updated!

    After more then a week, the meta description did not change to what I want to.
    I changed the meta on the page itself, at the bottom (all in one SEO description), and the general meta in Settings > All in One SEO is also changed to what I want, but Google does not show the right meta.

    It is indexed, because my new pages are already indexed in Google, with the right Meta.

    Can someone please help me? Thanks!
