How can I control the text that shows up about my site in Google?

Search engines generally take a portion of the text from your Home Page and use this as your website description on their search engine listing.

If you've changed this text recently but your search engine listing continues to come up as your old text, give it some time. Search engines do expire and refresh their listings, but it can take some time for changes to your site to get updated in Google and other search engines. We are unfortunately not privy to their refresh rates.

You can try to expedite the process by requested to each individual search engines that they re-crawl your site.

If you don't like the text that displays below your website in your search engine result, you must alter your home page text in order for it to change.
