My family has a couple <widget> websites where they make custom <widgets>. Every <widget> is one of a kind. With every <widget> we make, we also do a video showing the item. It is hosted on Youtube.com. I noticed that when they were uploading the Youtube videos, they were using the same title and description for the videos as we have on our product pages.
So I did some searching and noticed that all the product pages on our site if you search for the products show up in the supplemental results. This is below scraper sites as well. Almost 100% of the time the Youtube video is in the 1st spot.
I plan on testing changing some of the product titles and descriptions on our website to see if this is the issue. Have you ever heard of Google penalizing and/or putting a website in the supplemental results when the descriptions and titles match?
