When did you finish updating the site? The google result is cached from 4/22 and that version has the leadin content that displays in the result.
Thank you Bregent for getting back to me. Do you know how I would clear the google cache, or update it?
Breget is referring to the cache maintained by Google. You can't clear or update their cache - unfortunately, all you can do is wait for your site to get crawled (which can take a couple days), and once they have gathered your meta information, they will then update the description in their SERP (which can also take a couple days).
Interestingly, I looked for your article by searching "new york companion high rise syndrome" and the first result was THIS page!!! This points to another factor which is the more popular your site, the more often it is updated. I would recommend you take a look at Google's Webmaster Tools and do a bit of research into SEO - this should help clarify things more...
P.S. - It looks like your meta information was entered correctly.
Thank you Jason,
Yea I found a site late last night that laid everything out clearly and I was able to correct the meta info, the link is below.
Thanks for getting back to me and hopefully a week from now google will update the description.
Hope you have a great weekend!
