Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206

Eg if my meta description is
"My site is cool, visit it"
but on my site it has the text
"This is a cool site"
if a customer searches
"This is a cool site" that is displayed rather than "My site is cool, visit it"
any help appreciated. Thanks
You might be able to persuade them to use your meta description by making it a bit longer.
Something around 75 characters written in grammatically correct English should do it.
I don't know why you feel that "there must be" since the SEs are extremely keen to avoid being manipulated, eg in case the description supplied is deliberately deceptive. It used to happen a lot in the past and thus I should think that G at least is unlikely to allow it to happen again.
