    Hi all,

    When I see my website on Google search page under it instead of what I have written for the snippet this appears:

    Warning: include_once(/home/username/altamethod.com/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/wp-seo.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in ...

    What does this mean? And how can I get my original snippet back?

    Thanks in advance.

    The error message is telling you what the problem is.

    Your Wordpress Seo plugin is missing some files. Disable this plugin and the error message is gone. It will take some time for this to reflect back in Google though.

    For my own edification Colin, is this a better solution than re-instating the Seo plugin?

    No, I disagree. You don't "need" to do anything with any plugins

    Assuming the site url is the one in your first post
    What has happened is that Google has indexed your site while there was a plugin error
    Looking at the site, that no longer has the error, so next time the google spider comes to visit, it should see the change & put the new snippet in google search

    in fact doing a google search now for altamethod.com I see this screenshot showing proper snippets


    If you tell us or show us a screenshot of where you are seeing the wrong google snippet, we might be able to advise further.
