    Hi,

    I am currently setting up the Yoast plugin on my site and i was just wondering when it comes to setting up a meta description for a post page on your site, is it better to use a mini description of what the actual post is about or just use a generic one for all your posts on your site? I am looking at this from an SEO angle.

    Thanks

    Unique description for each post is your best bet

    I usually put a short and unique description for each post... if you don't, Google or other SE will simply pull random snippets from the article.

    youst does not put side wide meta tags, including some important tags. So I use separate plugin for meta data updation.
