    Exclamation Sabotage? My page has wrong Title and Description in the SERPS!


    Hi guys,

    Is this sabotage on my website?

    I just found out that in Google, one of my web pages has a result with my competitors Title and Description!

    I have never seen this elesewhere or before and I am not a beginner in SEO ...

    Looks like this if I search on the words or phrases in the Title or Description below (example):
    Bestshopworld.com - best prices on net ...
    bargains at besthopworld.com ... best prices you have ever seen ... take a closer look at bestshopworld.com
    www.findpricesonthenet.com/prices.asp

    findpricesonthenet.com = my website
    Title and Description = from one of my competitors

    My actually Title and Description is something totally different and I have not changed that page in months ...
    Looks like this if I search on the words or phrases in the Title or Description below
    Find prices on the net...
    Take a close look at the price we have .... when you are
    ready ... fill out the order form ...
    www.findpricesonthenet.com/prices.asp


    When clicking the URL and cache link in both cases, you land on my webpage and which shows correctly.

    This means two things when searching in Google:
    1. searching for Bestshopworld.com, a result from www.findpricesonthenet.com/prices.asp may show up with which is not logical or want I want
    2. searching for my Title I have on www.findpricesonthenet.com/prices.asp, the result on Google is logical, meaning my Title and Decription shows.

    I believe someone has sabotaged my webpage by sending links or done some doorway to have the Title and Description changed in the Google index on my particular page.

    Can someone please guess or inform me what have happened? Or contact me!

    You may have used their Title and Desc in one of your pages...

    I have not done anything to that page for months.

    And never used their Titles, text material or any other things.

    So I have never copied as you suggest.
