    I'm auditing a site and ran it through Screaming Frog. It's coming back to me saying that there are a number of pages that are missing meta descriptions. Ok great. Except it's clearly wrong about the home page at least. What gives?

    Update your screaming frog version.

    If it doesn't help to fix the issue, use another crawler like xenu.

    Xenu hasn't been updated in 7 years.

    I think this software is pretty outdated.
