Causes of Wrong Meta Description Error
In general, most of the Magento stores face this error since there is the same content appearing on multiple pages.
Another typical reason is that the store owners don’t provide unique meta tags for each page on their site.
How to Fix Wrong Meta Description Error for Magento websites
If your store has multiple websites, it’s highly recommended to add a tag <link> with certain attributes so as to avoid the problem of duplicate description as the following:
<link rel=”alternate” href=”http://www.example.com/” hreflang=”en-us” />
<link rel=”alternate” href=”http://www.example.uk/” hreflang=”en-uk” />
<link rel=”alternate” href=”http://www.example.com/” hreflang=”x-default” />
Moreover, it’s worth noting that the “x-default” value points to .com version. All users who are not from UK and US will see your .com page.
Otherwise the meta description of your website for the United Kingdom may be replaced by a meta description for the domain .com.
1. Avoid duplicated meta description
It’s a taboo to apply identical or similar descriptions for all/ many pages on your website.
If you still try to do that, Google will consider those pages as duplicates and won’t display them on the search results.
In some cases, your pages will even be discarded from Google index.
Besides, we highly recommend you to use marked-up data in the meta description in order to include structured data about the page. For example, in the product page’s meta description, you can mention important information such as its price, materials, manufacturer, and so on.
2. Use software to create meta descriptions
If you are too busy to create unique meta description for every single page, using a special software might be an ideal solution. There are many software allows you to generate different description based on the available database of the website.
This solution has been widely used by large Magento e-commerce stores.
