    The description meta tag is a search variable.

    The description will depend on the search terms used to find your website on Google search.

    To test your description tag, search the exact first line of your updated meta tag. If it pops up word for word it is updated.

    Did you do a site: search or a proper search?

    Don't tell me you did a search for [barbie *] because that would explain everything

    Search Google with the exact words used in your meta description. If they show the exact results then Google has searched you.

    hmmm...I wonder if your meta descriptions are duplicated across pages.

    I also agree with the person above, query has to do with it also.

    Have you submitted this text to Google Shopping, perhaps?

    The "30+ items" bit suggests that Google knows exactly how many products you sell.

    It looks like Google prefers your "Open Graph" og:title and og:site_name over your proper <title>

    Where they got "Girls Bedding Kids Bedding Dreams deals with great collection..." is beyond me. It must have been written some day, by someone (i.e. probably you)...

    Google has changed their page title displays and the new way is awful. I've seen titles created by G using everything from keyword searches to category breadcrumbs. Not sure they have that bug worked out.
    Frankly, I wonder who Frank is and why he has his own adverb.
