Page Title and Descriptions


I'm using the following on each page;

<title><?php perch_pages_title(); ?></title>
  'template' => 'seo.html'    

I've entered the title and descriptions for each page in Page Options, but checking the page listings in google, only the titles are showing... the description is just picking random sentences from the page.

The site is new and was freshly indexed by google.

Do I need to do something else to get the descriptions to work?

Thanks Wayne

If you View Source is your meta description showing?

If so then we can't really account for what Google is choosing to do!

Thanks Rachel. Hadn't thought of checking the page source to see if it was showing... weekend brain not working. Its showing the description correctly, so that's OK.
