Hello - For some reason our live web pages are not picking up the meta descriptions that we have entered within the Shopify edit screens for our collections. Google is generating meta descriptions from the body content on these collection pages.   

Has anyone else had this problem? Any insights how we can resolve?

Many thanks for any tips from the experts!


Google first has to crawl then index the updates. You can check this by viewing Google's cached versions of the page. If this latest version is cached, then Google judges its meta description to be more appropriate. The SE does not always display the meta description as the snippet of black text in search results.
