The description of my store that appears in Google Search, under my URL, when I'm Googled, needs to be changed.  How do I change it?  I've tried but been unable.  Thanks.

If you go to online store > preferences you can change the google title and meta description. For product and page title and meta description you can change those in the page and product settings. It's relatively easy.

I also have this problem, have changed the title and description but no change to my google search results. Need help ASAP! i believe this is affecting my sales (the store looks very dodgy when people google it and see the current results).

 

Is there any update on this?

It wont happen immediately, you'll have to wait for google to crawl your site which can take a few days or you can send a request to google to re-index your site:
