    Hello Guys,

    Please i need some help here.I launched three sites two weeks back using wordpress. I set up All in one SEO. I did the on page Seo and everything but its been two weeks now and when you put the url on Google, it does not show the discription of the site.All it shows is the Url only.
    One of the site is number 18 on Google.
    This is killing me. All the sites has backlinks to them but its not showing discription. Any help would be deeply appreciated.Thanks in advance.

    use either platinum seo or all in one seo plugin. they are great for setting the description and keywords for each page. they are both free too.

    IMO it is good idea to manually edit description as most automatic meta generator will just use for 160 or so first characters as description, which is not always good idea.

    just a side note: since the search engines usually show 155 characters of your description meta tag dont waste it by filling it with keyword after keyword, yes include your keyterms in it but make sure you includes some type of call to action in it also.
