    so for jetblue – that’s not their meta description, just what google had decided to use at that particular time for that query. Granted there might be more they could do to make sure this description weren’t included (this description likely came from a crawl when the site wasn’t available to GOoglebot and they could probably handle that better), but ultimately Google controls this – not the publisher.

    re Hotel : That’s why you paid for four stars – to actually talk to someone at the front desk via phone without the challenge )

    re Universal Studios : But you were on Google’s page. Don’t you think, that you should blame Google for the inappropriate information provided per your query ? Google always says to us, its users, that ads on SERPs add informational value to the search results. You discovered an obvious fail of Google, but even didn’t mention it. Why ?

    re Jet Blue :
    I’m not sure, why did you mention SEO in this case.
    snafu #1 – as the user, I would find it helpful to know immediately on homepage landing what kind of information could I get on website and what information I couldn’t get. It would save my time and efforts and I would appreciate that ;

    snafu #2 – you can’t be serious thinking, that big brands like Jet Blue are obsessed with SERPs.
    Furthermore, for example I made a lot of flights with Jet Blue, buying tickets on Expedia. It took me some years to realize, that I can buy tickets directly from Jet Blue. Title “Airline Tickets” reminds me about the possibility to buy tickets directly … though I still buy on Expedia )
    Anyway, the web is not always about SEO. Especially in 2014.

    But you are definitely right, saying that Internet is different, when one is located inside Silicon Valley. Larry Page and Amit Singhal perfectly proved this with their latest “innovations”, starting from Panda )

    Valid point roseberry. I guess my main point was that they should prevent this from showing up, not that it was their intended meta description!
