Google going googly? Not quite ...
As Kelvyn will know, I've been having probs with one client's site. As a side effect, I had a look in Google to see what he was concerned about.
I typed in "french lavender oil" and the site comes up with this result:
Lavender oil & dried lavender, French lavender oil
Offers dried lavender florets and lavender oil produced at Chateau de la Gabellea in France. Details varieties and their growth and harvest.
www.lavendersupplies.co.uk/ - 5k -Cached - Similar pages
The title tag is accurately reflected in the top link, but where did they get the text snippet below? It is nowhere in Joomla's database AFAIK and there's a typo in the chateau name. Looks like a human-edited directory entry from somewhere or other. Most mystifying - and no wonder the client thinks that Joomla is screwing up his listing.
Edit: I just found a help page that explains that some of it comes from the ODP. So I left this here in case anyone found it helpful! I am getting behind with this stuff, as I'm sure it used to mangle content from the page itself.
Here's the entry from ODP, compete with typo:
