Search Engine Description

    I’ve started a new blog and I’m having trouble changing the description of my website in search engines such as google. For example, if you search my site name (starting elevens) then it shows up 3rd choice, I believe. However, instead of showing my tagline it starts with my first post.

    I’ve made websites with wordpress before, so I know I must be missing something here, but I can’t figure out what it is. I’ve used a number of different SEO packs and nothing has changed it, made an xml sitemap… I’m having trouble knowing what I should do at this point.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is

    Hi there….I’m after the same answer – how do I choose the description of my site that shows up on google? My site is the first to show up in a google search, but the it only displays the menu headings I would like to choose a description of my own – how do I do this.

    many thanks in advance.

    You can’t. Google display what it choose to display and we have no input into that.
