Message Too Old, No Replies

Old site description/tags show up in search -- NEW ones aren't there.

I made the mistake of publishing my page before it was really done, so I've got a description and meta tags that show a bunch of crud I don't want up there.

I published it like that five days ago or so.

I re-published it with all new content about 48 hours ago (the ENTIRE web site is new including tags/meta).

But the old garbage is still there in Google.

I'm new to this, but you'd think they'd keep web sites a little more fresh than this.

Or did I completely screw myself by publishing that site with crap I ended up changing?

Has Google kept a little note on me, "Watch this guy, first he posted a site we don't really approve of politically, and now he's completely changed it to something else... lets just keep his old tags and descriptions on there for a few months and make him sweat it."

Does it even matter?

If I had WAITED and published it with the current content -- which is better, more relevant to the subject -- would I be better off?

Nope. They're just molasses on a cold day slow at updating things right now. I started noticing it about a month or so before they moved Panda to the front end of the index building process rather than running it separately.

Just wait. They'll get changed eventualy.
