    On the Google SERPs it's not using my meta description as the description, instead it's using some of the content - this just started happening yesterday and I'm not sure why.

    When I fetch as google from WMT it shows the correct meta desc content="blah blah" but then it shows something different, and I've tried resubmitting it a few times to no effect.

    I've done everything on my end - cleared cache, cookies, etc. tried different browsers - BING and Yahoo are picking up the correct description..

    Anyone ever run into this?

    It might take a few days for it to change. Just wait

    But why would it happen in the first place? I didn't change anything on the page in question, one day it was serving the correct description, the next day it wasn't :/

    OP don't be worried basically Google bot crawl the web and if your web is down or not loading properly so it get and display what is showing.

    So make sure your site is up to date and added meta description and don't worry.
