    I can't seem to figure out this problem; I made an edit to a page recently and now Goog won't pull my meta description but instead is pulling text from the page. I've tried to research this but can't find out what's happening.

    Any of you guys have suggestions on how to fix this. There's nothing screwy with the code, just the usual META inside the <head>.

    Is this something Google has decided? Anybody ??

    Thanks in advance, the cowboy

    It could take as many as 5 days to get a New Meta Tag pulled by a Spider, Pull a sitemap and set it all up on Google. You may also have a coding error in your tag.. Have you re-pinged your site?

    I think (and I could be wrong) google don't take your meta description, it take text for the page. I usually put a description of the page at the very beginning, in a small font, but visible (google don't like hidden content)

    It happens sometimes.

    There are 2 reasons -

    1) You description has low value - You need to have unique, keyword stuffed description.
    2) Spiders have yet to crawl your site - wait few days and see whats gonna happen.
