Does anyone have an idea why my title tag won't display when I do a search for my brand online? The title tag that is currently showing is just one work, the site name.

If I search any other brands online there titles display fine, I work on several sites and it's only happening to this one.

I should also mention that we have great rankings for interior pages but the index never seems to rank well for our top terms.

If you type "widgets" into Google - and your domain name is widgets.com - that i would expect to see the result you are getting.
[Should't that be Title element, rather than Title tag.]

look into titles being used from dmoz. there is a meta tag you can use to block G using this.

If it is picking the title from Dmoz then ypu the below tag:

<meta name="robots" content="NOODP">

This will ensure that your current title is picked up by all the SE's
