Google webmaster tools is giving me some duff information. It's telling me about tags and meta descriptions that I changed weeks ago. Is google crawling an old version of my site? Even though it is telling me it was updated yesterday? How do I get google to view my changes?

Hi Will, it's my experience that some updates to Webmaster Tools (WMT) come in stages - they don't always match the data to the last crawl date. Essentially, they crawl at one time but don't update the information until later.

I wouldn't be worried - the information that shows up on your page is what matters most. WMT is a good tool to show you major issues, but is certainly fallible especially for smaller sites.
