Hello  all,

I have an issue with the meta description of my website homepage, as when I search for it on Google it shows the below description instead of the SEO test I wrote in the Shopify set up:

"Enter using password. TBL furniture. Opening Soon. Find out when we open: Email. Submit. Enter store using password: Password. Enter."

can you please advise?

thanks a lot,

ben

Hi Ben,

Is your store in password protect mode? You can check in your admin settings or log out and visit your home page URL to see. This is the most likely cause. If your store is live, Google just needs a few days to crawl and index the updated meta description.

Hi Joshua,

it has been 9 days since I removed the password and nothing has changed. 

Is it possible that Google has not crawled the page yet?

Many thanks,

Ben

Yes, it is possible.You can try to speed the process by submitting a sitemap. Here is how you can do it:

Hi all,

I removed the password almost 3 weeks ago and I recently submitted the map successfully, but the meta description shown is still:

"enter using password. TBL furniture. Opening soon. Find out when we open: email. Etc..."

could there be any other reason for it? 

Many thanks again,

Ben

Did you check the meta description of your home page?

It may be set wrong to the password protected text. So it can't be updated. I am not sure if it's related to your theme as well.
