    Meta Tag contents not showing up in google and facebook

    michaeldevin

      I publish an online newspaper about animal news in nyc. I recently rebuilt my site in dreamweaver and have just added meta tags to my homepage and that of the most recent article. When I do a google search the homepage description comes up with a leadin from an old article. Also when I tried posting the newest article in facebook the meta tag content description did not appear. Can someone tell me how I should correctly write the meta tag in the html so that it appears in google searches and when I post articles on facebook? Below are links to my homepage and the article discussed above, as well as how I wrote the meta tags in the html. Thank you in advance for all your help!

      Best,

      Michael

So far this year the ASPCA has seen 26 cases, a nearly 45 percent increase compared with the same period last year. Mild weather could be to blame for the surge this spring. On average during the warm months, the ASPCA sees approximately three to five cases per week." />
