This text isn't in the page source so where does it come from?

This question came from our site for WordPress developers and administrators.

You can adjust that text by adding a META Description inside your HEAD tag: w3schools.com/tags/tag_meta.asp – Christine Cooper Dec 8 '13 at 16:20
How long have you had the domain? And how long has your site been up on the domain? I am voting to migrate to Webmasters, where it is hopefully a better fit. – s_ha_dum Dec 8 '13 at 16:20
Its been up for a few weeks or so. – Ian Warburton Dec 8 '13 at 16:34

Google has (currently) indexed an older page which was available at http://verpress.com/ for a long time (at least since 2011-02-02 and at least until 2013-08-06).

Looks like a domain parking page, which probably had shown ads related to the terms you still see in Google’s snippet.

When the current page gets crawled by Google, the description in the snippet will change accordingly.

Google can pull descriptions from a number of places off of your website (Yahoo Directory and DMOZ, for example), there are some tags you can add to ask google not to use them, but it's not 100%. You should install a reputable SEO plugin like WordPress SEO by Yoast and set a meta description to whatever text you like.
