I see what is happening. If you change your sites description for that page (as well as your other pages), this will change the description that you are seeing in the search engine. Here is a link to a tutorial with more information on how to do this: Adding title, description and keywords tags.

Please note that it may take some time once you change this for the new description to start showing up in the search results, this is perfectly normal. It will take some time for Google to re-spider your site and see that there have been changes. When these changes are detected Google will remove the and put in the new one. This can take some time, but it will eventually happen and is out of our control.

I hope this helps!

Hi there,

I think what your problem is that because your description is blank Google is scraping your site for something to put in the search result.

You could put your URL in your description so that Google uses that, but if you leave it blank then you may get these results as Google is wanting to find something to describe your site.

I hope this helps.

there are 3 solutions for this.

1. Use flash 8 with action script 2.
New flash versions compile some additional data to video/swf object. If this is a swf object (I mean your 'flash video' ) enter some relevant description to the file.(in flash , go to the properties bar. If you are using older version , go to File>publishing settings and upgrade the player.

2. You need to add some search-engine-attractive text below (and above) the video.
Adding text in a bold or underline markup will help Google to determine a good description.

3. You can prevent the entire page from being indexing.
You need to add 'noindex' and 'noarchive' metatags to the VERY TOP of the CURRENT PAGE.

Google search results differ by 'my favourites' recorded in Google , Geo , Browser and such things. So I couldnt view the Google SERP you linked.

Good Luck.

(the description field cannot be directly controlled by webmaster. Google has a complex algorithm to determine them.)
