    Google is not correctly indexing my homepage Meta Title.

    It displays just fine when you check the source code of the homepage, but when I see the SERPs it should something else: only the site name (Joomla website).

    Any ideas why is that?

    This happened to me as well, and I would also like to know the reason.

    I've had the same issue - there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. Sometimes Google decides another phrase on the page is more relevant to the search query. There's an article on Authority Labs where they analysed 110,000 search results and discovered Google completely of slightly changed the <title> tags on 56% of them. Google "authority labs blog title tags" - its the first result.
