Google Sees Different Meta Descriptions On One Page 2 different meta descriptions appearing on search results for a same page awaisashraf msg:3895551 1:45 pm on Apr 19, 2009 (gmt 0) Hi,
I have a website "example.com", when i type in the search
site:www.example.com in Google, the home page shows the actual description which I have typed in through the CMS.
But when i search for a specific keyword in Google, a different description appears below the title of my website.
I'm not sure what is making Google to show two different descriptions. Is some thing wrong with my code?
Any help would be appreciated.

Google does not always use the meta description for the snippet that appears on the search result page. They will sometimes override the meta description and instead use a snippet from the text on your page if they deem it is more relevant to the search term.
Search engines try to provide the most informative and relevant site snippets on their search results page, that is why having a meta description does not guarantee it will be displayed on serps for every search term.

But my description is very much good. Its easy read for the users, and has major keywords in it. The ones i am targeting for my website.
Is there anyway i can make Google read my description?

does the meta description contain the specific term/phrase for which you are searching?
