Rather than displaying the correct title Brand - description of services it is now using the brand name only. Not a problem...
title="Return to the Example Homepage"><img
alt="Example Corp - [descriptive text]" /></a>
alt="Example header image" />

So, if caribguy has decent number of links using only the brand name as anchor text
I changed the title to something else. Few days later, google change it to completly different keywords from the home page!
EG: They change the title to something that 'gets clicks' then change it to something that 'blends in'
<div id="title-area"><h1 id="title"><a href="http://www.studiopress.com/" title="StudioPress - Premium WordPress Themes">StudioPress - Premium WordPress Themes</a></h1><p id="description">Professional WordPress Websites</p>
</div><!-- end #title-area -->
I cannot find WHERE the text is coming from. It's not ODP or YDIR or any sentence on my god damn home page.
Google's creation of sites' titles and descriptions (or "snippets") is completely automated and takes into account both the content of a page as well as references to it that appear on the web.
