Hi there! I recently switched over to the Generate Pro Theme and genesis framework and noticed my site description on google changed with it. I have SEO plugins installed, but that doesn't seem to change it. It's pulling the footer description as default and I'd rather it pull the site description. I found with first link when I google searched "asmithblog". Please help. Thanks!
This is what's being output in your header, so the code looks fine:
<meta name="description" content="Adam Smith's thoughts on leadership, relationships, communication, creativity, focus and social media.">
But it says this on Google when I type in "asmithblog":
About; Build A School · Podcast · Coaching · Advertising · Archives. © 2015 asmithblog.com · All Rights Reserved · Powered by the Generate Pro Theme & Oqobo.
So I can see your dilemma. I think it's just a mistake from google though, and probably not related to the site, or to genesis. Here's why...
When I type it in with the site operator, all the correct info comes up for your home page including the title and meta description. Try it by clicking here.
I notice it says that you haven't claimed your site using google webmaster tools. I would try doing that, as well as submit your sitemap to them. That might fix the issue.
Let us know how it goes, and hopefully that fixes you up.
Thanks sir good solution you told today I learn one more thing 🙂
even i too have same kind of issue, i already submitted sitemap in google webmaster tools. how to overcome this issue.
It looks like you have multiple instances of the meta description and keywords on your site. Are you using multiple SEo plugins, or maybe an SEO plugin that's not compatible with Genesis? That's most likely your problem if so.
Google simply doesn't know what to display, since your website is feeding it conflicting information. So instead they're just displaying whatever they pull from the page.
Before Genesis Theme, i have used ALL in One SEO plugin. After i started genesis theme, i have disabled all seo plugins & now only using Genesis inbuilt SEO.
I claimed site and submitted sitemap, but it is still showing the same. What do you think I should do?
I am still having issues with this if anyone can help. Thanks!

Adam Smith's thoughts on leadership, relationships, communication, creativity, focus and social media.
That's what I'm getting... Is it supposed to say something different?
Also, remember that what you ask Google to show using SEO tools is just a suggestion. They don't have to follow it.
