Title turmoil
Getting the right listing

Hi
One of my sites' home pages appears with its DMOZ description instead of my META DESC for some search terms, and I've learned to do live with that.

Now, however, a second degradation has crept in.
My website is at www.mysite.org.uk.
The word mysite is on the page, but the title is something like
"The something or other site - mysite"

For many searches for terms on the home page, it produces
"The something or other site - mysite"
My Meta Desc or DMOZ description

However, if I search for "mysite", it produces
Mysite
My Meta Desc (never the DMOZ description)

Mysite isn't the title - how do I get the real title to appear?

Have you tried the <meta name="robots" content="noodp"> tag? See this thread for more information:

As tedster states, I had similar troubles with the title changing 2 - 3 ways in SERPS adding the noodp meta tag kills it off in 2 to 3 days.

Thanks - I'll give it a go and see what happens.
