    Hi,

    This is very weird. When I Google for a keyword I want to rank for, I get the correct search engine description but the title of the SERP result is for a totally different article.

    Or sometimes the result on Google has 2 titles with one being the correct one but its links to the wrong article.

    Does anyone have an idea what's going wrong here?

    I have written a lot of articles and had a lot of sites but never had this issue before.

    You mean your descriptions or desc's for other websites? It doesn't always show meta-descriptions, sometimes it will show the top content from your article. Not sure if that helps, but highly unlikely it's coming from the wrong page/other pages.

    I think it is good to remove that link once from the Google with the help of the Google webmaster and after that try to resubmit it on the Google.
