    My site is ranking in google, bing and yahoo, only problem is that in the yahoo listings the description is garbage.

    This is what it looks like:

    ... Keyphrase here ... Keyphrase here ? Home Page. How To ... Keyphrase here is proudly powered by WordPress. Entries (RSS) ...


    On google and bing it is fine, it displays what i have in the meta description, or other stuff from my pages that makes sense.

    On yahoo im getting 0 clicks because of the garbage description, how can I fix this?

    Well, yahoo, it 's not getting the description, but some content of your page. That 's normal on other search engines too. When they don 't find relevant content to the search they use the description (if any).

    There is plenty of relevant information on my page, all the other search engines are reading it fine, for some reason yahoo is just reading my links bar and some other crap.
