Default Question on page title, description as opposed to what shows in search results

Hi,

I just have a question as far as what or how does the title/description get pulled in google for your website when doing a search.

I have an attached example. I'm pretty sure I understand the title part is the meta title you put in dreamweaver but I'm confused like in the example how just a sentence is pulled from the main content.

For any of my websites when I google them, what shows under description is the first sentence of the page content.... any suggestion ideas? thanks for any help

google will take content from the page if there is no meta description tag. ASIK

Actually I believe Google prefers to pull content from the page that contains the search query and uses the Description meta tag for things like domain name search results (where the search term doesn't appear in the content). The keywords meta tag is ignored.
