    The description is for the page and not for the site - and therefore needs to be different on every page. Check with your theme designer to find out where they're getting the info from. It might be custom fields...

    I use the All In One SEO plugin. This allows you to set the META description for your home page and any blog posts or pages you create as well. Been using it for years and always does the trick for me.

    You'll have to create meta description manually for your WordPress Website Pages. Every web page must have a unique and individual Meta Description, and meta description will be within 150 to 155 characters. Meta description must deal with the main idea of the article shortly.

    Your targeted keyword must be in the meta description, and it's better to be in the beginning of the description. If you've installed Yoast SEO plug-in on your WordPress site, then go to your web page and scroll down. You'll find 'Edit snippet' and click it. Afterwards, put your meta description, and if it shows green signal, then it's OK. Finally update your changes. Okay, that's all.

    Meta description is a brief description of what your page or post is about. Meta keywords and description are actually HTML meta tags, and they go into your website's header. WordPress SEO plugins make it super easy for you to add them from your WordPress admin area for each post and page on your website.

    Let us look into the future for a second. Imagine your website is ranking in Google and you see it, displaying a title ( top line) and usually two lines of description below that. Does those three lines explain the content of the page well? Is it enticing enough for you to click on your website? If yes, then that is the right title and meta description.
    If you are doing SEO yourself, then before writing meta titles or description, create a URL mapping and think which keyword you are going to target on which page and then try to use the most important keywords in meta title and description but don't make it spammy.
    You can use Yoast to put meta description in your Wp website. It will not wrote meta title or descriptions for you :)
