price visible in SEO description

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a small problem on my website. When one of my products appears in a Google search, the price of the item is visible, and I have a site where my prices are invisible as they are on request. I was wondering if I should only add an SEO description. However, when I add one, it doesn't update. How long does it take for changes to take effect? And if this solution doesn't work, what would be the alternative solution? Coding? Thank you very much.

Hi - @Theo4543,

I can help you with your current situation. Below, I've provided some potential insights that might be helpful:

  • It appears that you haven't added a meta description to your page. As a result, Google is generating meta descriptions manually based on your page content. To improve this, you can add a meta description to your page.
  • Ensure your meta description is 150-160 characters long and include the primary keyword you want to rank for.
  • Use the URL Inspection Tool on Google Search Console to perform live tests for all the URLs and submit indexing requests while doing the live tests. It will help refresh the data in the search results.
     

Thanks,
Sadul Sifat.

As a result, Google is generating meta descriptions manually based on your page content.

To prevent confusion for beginners:

  • Google does not "manually" generate descriptions, it is an automated process. Note, Google writing descriptions isn't inherently bad, it tries to choose parts of your content that match the user query. But if you write a good description, they will typically show your wording.
  • The length of a meta description is not limited to 150-160 characters. Shorter or sometimes longer descriptions can be appropriate. Google's current documentation states: "There's no limit on how long a meta description can be, but the snippet is truncated in Google Search results as needed, typically to fit the device width."
  • It is important to understand that including the “primary keyword you want to rank for” has no impact on page ranking.
  • The URL Inspection Tool is meant for checking individual page status, not for routine checks of “all the URLs.” And requesting indexing does not guarantee quick updates or “refreshed data.”

Refer to Google's documentation:

@Theo4543 Using the URL inspection tool you can see when they last crawled a page and ask for a recrawl if you haven't already. Indexing is usually quick, but read Google's documentation here: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/9012289?hl=en#request_indexing

Keep in mind what you see via "site:" can differ from what is shown in organic SERPs.
