The more I examine the current results from Google, the more I seem to understand why they are not always spot on. Google appears to employing IA that is still in the learning process. Hopefully it can be kept in control of itself (where the fictitious HAL and Skynet failed). Obviously Google is no longer that lone PC tower case held together with duct tape. Sometimes we assume it is following strict rules, but now it seems to be attempting it's own thought process. If Walter is doing it, Google likely is too.
Back on topic though, I have yet to see my titles affected, but my meta descriptions have been taken from my body text for quite some time. I also nixed ODP a long time ago.
