I’m not seeing a meta description in the < head > section in the source code of my site

Last update: 22 February, 2018

This article is about the source code of your site. An example of the source code that should appear in the < head > section:

<meta name="description" content="Preferred description goes here"/>

If this is missing, check whether your theme's header.php file contains a call to wp_head().

If the description appears in the source code but is incorrect, please read this article.

If you are looking for a place to enter your meta description in your post, you may want to check your settings using our article about the Yoast metabox is missing.
