Everything is fine except the last line which is

Note: "Reference in Perl" is the most recent post at my site.

When I share any of my post on facebook then it works fine but when I share the homepage (www.linuxstall.com) then it shows most recent post's description instead of the site's description.

What is the reason of that? How can I correct that?

I have configured open graph using YOAST.

enter image description here

See the screenshot. It is showing "Reference in Perl" as a description.

  • Can you link to the plugin you are using. Chances are it has to do with that. I see "Reference in Perl" is the most recent article and I'm sure that's what the Open graph is pulling because it's just guessing on content. – Brooke. Feb 10 '12 at 7:53
  • I got it. JETPACK's sharing option is the reason for this. I don't want to remove JETPACK but I want to remove this sharing feature. How can I do that? I mean how to disable this feature. I don't use its sharing option in posts BTW but it still giving the description. – Chankey Pathak Feb 20 '12 at 10:53
  • I have done it. Problem solved :) – Chankey Pathak Feb 20 '12 at 11:00
  • Yes, the problem is with Jetpack sharing. Chankey, how did you fix it? – user13833 Mar 5 '12 at 7:46
  • I turned off the jetpack sharing option. – Chankey Pathak Aug 22 '12 at 5:29

In the source code I see two og:description meta tags. The first and correct one seems to be coming from your Yoast WordPress SEO Plugin. The other one is outside the plugin's block, so I guess it's defined elsewhere.

Check your theme if it includes that meta tag. If not, check your other plugins. Disable them one by one to find the culprit.

  • I searched all theme files for the text "og:description" but didn't find it in any file. Will you please let me know where will it be so that I can edit that? – Chankey Pathak Feb 11 '12 at 0:05
  • Most likely you would find this in the header.php oder functions.php file of your theme. Can you provide a list of all activated plugins on your blog? Chances are high that one might also add these tags, not only Yoast's plugin. – swissspidy Feb 18 '12 at 15:12
