the answer to your problem is:

in Google's own words........

The Google index contains two types of pages--fully indexed and partially indexed pages. Your page is currently partially indexed, which means that although we know about your site, our robots have not read all the content on your page(s) in past crawls. This does not adversely affect your PageRank or your inclusion in our index. It does mean that we don't 'know' what to call your page, so it gets listed with the URL as the title and no description.

We appreciate the frustration this causes webmasters who work hard to make their sites accessible to users. We are working to increase the number of fully indexed pages in our search results to alleviate this problem.

Patience and prayer.

New pages on an old site may be indexed fully in a matter of a week or two. Judging by comments in other threads, three months might be a typical wait for new sites.

Suggest frequent but small changes to pages (assuming Googlebot is visiting periodically).

Also be aware that new pages may fall in and out of the index.

Kaled.

I know patience is the key but its been nearly 7 months now...originally they were all PR5's all pages in, now all PR white bars still in index but no cache title or descritpions...and these sites do not link out to anything...only incoming links..

For about two years my site has been at the top. Also for about two years we have not been cached.

Cannot figure it out.

7 months sounds like a penalty or a technical problem.

Does Googlebot visit or not?
Have you checked your robots.txt file?
