  1. <meta http-equiv="description" content="entered description" />

    I have tried various ways to get this to work including coping fields from sites that work.

    Would someone Google in Explorer and View the source to determine what I am doing wrong?

    Everything looks correct:

    <meta http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252" />
  3. More tries

    <meta name="description" content=" whatever " /> still does not post on Google.

    Are you trying to use metadata to put a preview in the Google search results?

    If so, that's way more involved than using a meta tag. You might want to start here.
  5. Thanks for the focus info.

    Looks promising, I will give Rich Snippets a try.

  6. Google an others take weeks or months

    From browsing Google Webmaster I found that Google takes weeks or months to update these fields for less popular sites.

    Google claims there are now too many servers to do this faster.

    I am skeptical that thsi is the true reason.

    Do you want to close this thread or wait for futher acticity?

    There's no need to close the thread.
