Meta descriptions for forums not updating when crawled
I have a website forum with a bunch of subforums. Wpforo has been amazing so far, I'm just having an issue with the meta descriptions for the subforums not updating in search results. The main page meta description will update but not the subforums. The site has been crawled since I updated the descriptions (1 month ago) and when I view the crawled page the meta description is indeed not what is entered for the forum. I figured that it may just take a while to update but it's been a month. Could google just be taking the overall forum description and using it for each subforum? Thanks for any help!
Are you using some additional SEO plugins? If yes please exclude wpForo pages from the plugin's settings for providing optimal indexing of forum pages in search engines.
No SEO plugins. I do have Smush and SG Optimizer though; could those be affecting the SEO?
