Recently I added some content to my website and submitted a sitemap files to Google. Now that Google has indexed those pages, I discovered that some of words and sentences that are listed in Google that lead to my website are having their meta descriptions somehow mixed up.

Here is how it works: After I put a sentence on Google to check for my website ranking, I can see a page title in the results of page1, a link to page1, and a description from page2.

Since my website is a forum, if Google mixes the links of threads, it leads my users to different kind of material that they were looking for. Is there anything I can do about it?

Can you share a link to the search result where this is happening? If your site isn't mixing up the tags itself, then it really sounds like a bug in Google. One that I have never seen before myself. –  Stephen Ostermiller Dec 2 '13 at 12:53

1 Answer 1

If the description of Page1 is not related to the searched sentence, Google has the capability to take the related description from somewhere else it found.

Uh, but the description of Page2 does not relate to Page1 at all! Also, Page1 has it's own description. I don't know what to do now... –  ojek Nov 25 '13 at 11:09
