I'm using the module "metatag" to make my website SEO friendly. This works very well for all pages except the front page.

I go to modules -> Meta tags -> Settings -> Global: Front page

There I set a description. But this description isn't shown if you search the site directly in google. All other pages are working great, with the correct description.

When I look at the source, I see no meta data included at the front page.

  • How do you assign a mode to be 'front'? I created the "page--front.tpl.php". The homepage works as expected. Its just the Meta data doesnt appear? Commented Jul 20, 2012 at 20:43
  • you should have a look at this issue of meta-tags. It's the same problem and seems to be fixed in the latest dev version. Commented Dec 5, 2012 at 22:17

You need to assign a node to be 'front'. Otherwise the meta won't show.

  • ahaaaa... That will be the problem I guess. I'll take a closer look to your answer! Thanks in advance! Commented Jul 5, 2012 at 11:40
