Missing Meta Description Pages - Raptor SEO Data
Meta descriptions are an indirect ranking factor as they have a powerful impact on Click Through Rate (CTR). They should encourage people to click on your organic listings and reflect the content that the user will find on the page. Failing to specify a meta description means that Google will use content from the page within the search results. This will often not be optimised to encourage CTR and can lead to reduced organic visibility.
Ensure that all meta descriptions are both present and unique across all pages that you want to appear in the search results.
Meta decryptions are like your sales message to the world, they should accurately and fairly promote the content on the page while encouraging click through rate (CTR). CTR is a direct algorithmic ranking factor and is a powerful one, so although the meta description and keyword usage within it is not a direct ranking factor, it is still hugely important.
