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

Last update: 02 August, 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"/>

A. Check your theme's header.php file for a call to wp_head(). This function is required to output the Yoast SEO meta tags.

B. Confirm that a meta description has been added directly to the Yoast SEO metabox on the individual post or page.

C. Verify that a meta description template has been added in the Yoast SEO settings under Admin > SEO > Search Appearance for the content type in question.

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