This is strange. Google showing all the h2 tags in search results.


Recommended Posts

I am using html5 and all the pages have h2 headings as titles.  They all show up in google search results fine.  The only thing that doesn't show up fine are some of the descriptions under each heading. Some meta descriptions show up fine under the correct heading title, while rest shows ALL the heading tags AS description under each search result.  


For eg.

News Feed. Recent Products  ...


The above description includes the h2 heading tags of all the pages when it should only show the description of the page that I setup in the meta tags.



Anyone know why this is happening?

You don't have control over what google will display in the SERPs.  They don't just use the description tags and header tags from your site.  They use any and all content it finds to build the preview and can build that how ever they please based on the search term typed.

The Login · Signup · About · Lola's Dress  · Create a product · Find Products · News Feed. Recent Products, are they h2s of separate pages, or all on one page?


And can you post the HTML of your navigation menu (CSS not necessary)?
