This question already has an answer here:
We changed the sites UI, CMS, link structure. Also Bought a new and better domain name. After we completed everything. We did below step by step;
- Created a new web application for old.com/page1.html to new.com/page1.html 301 redirection.
- Used webmmaster tools for 301 redirection.
- Sent new sitemaps a long with robots.txt
Although we've got a custom title,meta descrpition and meta keywords for every page, Google takes a piece of sentece from content and uses it for MetaDescription. This is a big problem for our potential clicks on SERP. What should we do for getting back MetaDescription?
The old site is : indirimkodlari.gen.tr
The new site : indirimkodu.gen.tr
Google still shows the old url and right meta description with it.
The new domain name with randomly scraped on Google search of site.com/url
Solution Looking at Google's search cache by using "view source" shows we used the wrong field from database for MetaDescription! Changed it, fixed, and solved!.
