Write 2 or 3 sentences that introduce the topic of the page. This content appears at the top of the page and can optionally be used as the custom post excerpt by checking the box that says “Overwrite the post excerpt with this Introduction.”

If you use the All In One Schema Rich Snippets plugin, the Article description setting will be pre-filled with the content that is first typed into the Introduction field.

TIP: If your website uses Yoast SEO, you can use the %%excerpt%% variable to automatically use the post’s custom excerpt as the meta description. Go to SEO > Search Appearance > Content Types tab to place the %%excerpt%% variable into the meta description template field for Posts.
