I recently migrated my WordPress blog to Ghost, an alternative to WP, powerful and fast.

I wrote this topic on the official Ghost forum:


This concerns the lack of a description when I type the name of my site in Google. In the source code of the home page, there is a meta description, OG / Twitter tags. In the source code of the articles, there is no meta description, but the OG / Twitter tags are present.

It seemed to me that Google was able to read the content of the article to generate a description ... The articles are referenced but without description ...

I am wrong ?

I found the problem. In France, for website of press, Google remove description of results.

To improve this, add this meta in page source code:

<meta name="robots" content="max-snippet:-1, max-image-preview:large, max-video-preview:-1">
