I've managed to finish the website I was working on with Muse! Hooray!
Other problems arise right now though regarding SEO.
The website I finished is a replacement for an older site. It's on the same domain name
but I've moved the hosting to another hosting provider.
However when I Google Search for this domain I get the old website title & old description
in the result captions.
I've changed the metadata in the Muse site homepage and master pages but the Google
Search results still didn't change. It's been 24 hours since then. Having made the
website from scratch in Muse and using a new provider absolutely no files and information
from the former website has been kept. Then why does Google show those results?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Googles Search engine needs at least 2-3 weeks to show any changes. It could even happen that you find results months later.

Not exactly what you really need, but some explanation maybe?
I have in mind that J-26 has some more detailed information about your issue and invite him kindly to here.
Google may crawl your site at any time...there are numerous timing mechanisms dependent on you content how often you update the site and most importantly if google sees you site as warranting being crawled more often.
in general every 30 days but that’s very general. Go to your Webmaster tools and resubmit your site map...sometimes this will trigger an earlier crawl. Despite all the info out there you can’t force google or an6 other search engine to crawl your site...just suggest they do. Of course they want to have a good value for their customers to so if your site has well written good content following all the other SEO “helps”
good domain name
Page URL with keywords
naming files with keywords images, videos, etc.
H tags not a guarantee just good page structure practice
Page titles , descriptions, alt text, tool tips a whole lot more.
check out Johns J26 website...he offers some pretty good widgets and info.
That’s what I said...:))
thanks for the answers. i eventually found out...using google search haha
you need to go google account > google search console / crawl / fetch as google.
it's done and already appearing in the search results.
Great...clear your cache and check again just to be sure.
Google could take a couple of days to crawl the site. You can speed up the process by adding your site to Google webmaster and telling Google to recrawl the site.
