Title & Description Wrong (4 posts)

    Hello, hope someone can help. I have the latest version of Yoast's SEO Plugin for wordpress which is excellent.

    I have completed the SEO on each of the posts, the posts are discounts and vouchers for brands online, I went to google and did a search for Panda Security Discount Code.

    It finds me at Number 1 which is fantastic but the title and the description is about voucherCornwall and then it mentions Panda Security as below.

    Welcome to voucherCornwall bringing you the latest Discount ...
    Discover the latest Discount Codes, Vouchers and Promotional Codes throughout ... Visitors from voucherCornwall who buy a Panda Security solution wi.
    You've visited this page many times. Last visit: 13/07/12

    Why is this showing up when in the post the title and meta description are different to this? Seems like something is overriding what is in the Yoast plugin, any ideas please?

    See this post for the same problem: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wordpress-seo-by-yoast-wrong-descriptions-in-google-serp’s

    To make a long story short, Google does not always show the exact meta description, but will try to show the portion of the page that has the search term in it.

    We're having a similar issue. We've assigned individual metadescriptions to each post but Google is only pulling out the generic metadescription assigned to the blog in the SERPs, ie. the same metadescription for every page.

    Our site is http://www.bubble-jobs.co.uk

    Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? I've looked around and can't seem to find an answer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks :)
