For this we will be using the All In One SEO plugin that can be found using the link below:

With the plugin installed and activated, we are using the paid version so we will add the license key under All in One SEO, Add License Key and click connect. Now we should be able to launch the setup wizard for the recommended settings to add based on the type of site we’re using.

For the meta description for posts and pages, we will go under All in One SEO, Search Appearance, and under the advanced tab, we would want to enable the Use Meta Keywords option and save our changes.

When you directly visit a post you should be able to scroll down to see the new snippet area or you can use the All in One SEO button in the top-right of your post/page editor.

When you add to the Meta Description area, the plugin should show you a preview of the changes and what Google should show your visitors on your site. As a caveat, Google has started taking some of the content in posts to replace the meta description if Google feels that will answer the user’s question better than the default meta description.

When Google does show your meta description, the plugin offers automated description options such as the current year, author, or many other options. In the advanced tab, you can also include different keywords you would like to include for the Meta Keywords if you are using that as part of your SEO strategy.

For adding the Meta description and/or keywords to your home page, you can either directly visit the static page you are using on your site or under the All in One SEO, Search Appearance, Global Settings tab. You can even add these meta descriptions for categories and the All in One SEO plugin will show you on the categories page, which of your categories is missing this information.
