Improved Meta Description With WordPress

Google Webmaster tools was complaining that my content had duplicate meta descriptions. I found that it was always displaying the blog description on all the pages.

I found quite a few meta tag plugins but I settled for the Improved Meta Description Snippets plugin with a small modification.

I added this else block at line 119 In the improved-meta-description-snippets.php

	
else { 
	echo '';
}	

That displays the default blog description on the home page. Then I removed the default meta description in the header.php in my current theme.
