    When I update something inside the WP general settings ( Title & Description ) it doesn?t get updated in the SERPS ( The old title & description is being shown in the SERPS ).

    For some sites the Title & Description get?s updated almost immediately to within a day while for some sites whatever I do, it remains the same even after a week.

    I?m talking about sites that are ranked in the first page already.

    I?m using different themes for different sites & using Platinum SEO for all sites.
    So, practically there are 3 areas where I enter META TITLES & DESCRIPTION.


    1. WP- General settings
    2. Theme Settings
    3. Platinum SEO Settings

    Is there a conflict between the 3? Even if so, I have updated the Titles & Meta Descriptions in all the 3 Areas. Since Meta Titles & descriptions are Important for rankings, I?m not able to bring it up the serps without getting this updated in the SERPS.

    Does this also mean that G doesn?t Cache the site/page? If Caching/getting google to re-index the page again can make the change, then how do I do it?

    Has anyone experienced the same with WP meta titles & Descriptions not being changed in the SERPS?

    Hi, I am not sure if its Google issue or something related to themes. I have a Gantry based WP theme and my homepage shows 2 different titles for different search queries. I haven't been able to figure out where the problem lies. The site code always show single title consistently, but Google has got 2 titles for the same page - one with out site description in title and one with it. It has been like this for months now.

    Hi you should check the code of your page to see keyowords title and description of your site.If its as you want then let google a little bit more time to see the changes.I advise you to use yours theme options fortitles and meta.If the theme didnt have these options available you should use a seo plugin.

    I recently removed my Sitemap from webmaster tools and resubmitted my sitemap and that took care of the meta.

    I see that one of my sites which hasn't got the titles & descriptions updated has a cache age of more than 1 week.

    Is there any way i can make G spiders to cache my site again? Like pinging & similar tactics?
