    I need help! BAD! I have a self hosted wordpress site: here

    I am running a third party theme called launch effect ... here is my issue. When searing in for my website in google ... here

    ... the correct meta description shows up for my site.

    However, when is search for simply the name of the website ... not "example.com" ... but "example" ... i.e. here

    I still have "| Just another WordPress.com site Feb 13, 2012 – Welcome to WordPress.com. After you read this, you should delete and write your own post, with a new title above. Or hit Add New on the left ... showing up! How do I get rid of this meta description and have the correct meta description show up consistently w/o "Just Another WordPress ..." when searching for my site?! I have cleared the Site Title and Tageline under Settings > General. This still does not work.

    I have the correct description and tagline entered in LaunchEffect > Head > Page Title / Description.

    I have no idea what else to try. Please help!

    It can take up to 90 days for Google to refresh its index/cache.

    Ok, but am I doing what I need to be doing in order to get rid of the "Just Another Word Press ..." ? I dont understand why when i search for my website by name (i.e. example.com) it comes up with the correct descriptions as specified in launch effect, but when I search for my website my description (i.e. "example") it comes up with that original wordpress meta description ... Thats my conundrum here.

    From what I have seen, yes. You just need to be a little patient.
