    Hi there. Done some optimizing on one of my sites 4 days ago and changed my meta description. Google doesn't seem to have updated my site yet. Is that normal? I thought Google indexed everything really fast with WP.

    Regards,

    James :)

    Also noticed a drop in rankings since improved meta and SEO.

    Hi,It always take time my manager tell me "if you make some changes meta or messages need to wait arround 1 month". Best is to update as often as you can more messages exemple 1-10 per day so google can come back quicker.Good luck

    James,

    As cricriscorpi mentions, it can take a while for Google to index thing no matter what platform you are using. You could always try fetching the site as Google in WMT and submitting the pages to their index. This will speed up the process. This is also standard procedure when you make changes such as the ones you have mentioned.

    Here is how you do that,
