    You didn't specify the URL of your website. If you can provide it, I can take a look at the description and the Google listing for your keyword phrase to determine why they are different.

    when is Google last cache to your website? For low PR domain, it could be take about 1 month time to index the description. By providing an URL, it help us to rectify the problem.

    Re:

    If the website was online without a title and description then it sounds like a cache problem. If you try it again, it might be work in the way you expect.

    Could be a number of reasons for this, including content of the meta description, length of the entry and frequency with which your site is being spidered.

    It is important that your page gets cache by Google once you update your Meta Tags. It is most likely to be this reason that your description is not showing up.
