    Default Menu Showing in SERPS?

    Lately we have been getting really ****** up results in the SERPS. "Jump to" links showing as search results, alt tags, and now this ****:

    How in the Hell is google showing our menu structure as the text for a search query that has absolutely nothing to do with said result?

    To be clear, this is what I am referring to. This is literally our drop down menu titles that show on every page of the website:

    Kind of a stretch to say that's "legal" isn't it? I realize players aren't going to get prosecuted anytime soon - but your site targeted me with a popup saying "ignition casino is legal in WI" and that is not accurate.

    In regards to your specific question - even though sometimes it doesn't make sense, I see listings like that as a good sign that google trusts your site and is essentially give you site links. Even though sometimes inaccurate - it's something you want and in my experience always results in a better click to impression rate.

    I think you are confusing "regulated" with "legal". Just because a government does not regulate something does not make that something "illegal". It simply means there are not a bunch of moronic bureaucrats ******* it up.

    There is nothing illegal about playing online poker in WI or CA or 95% of US states.

    I am not referring to the "site links" at the bottom of the result. Those are in fact great to have and a sign of "trust" from Google.

    I am referring to the text; I have uploaded a new image to clarify.

    If I search for that exact phrase it shows the below, not sure why you are seeing a snippet of your menu in the meta desc.

    Thanks for checking. All these cocked up results we're getting lately is lowering CTR, I'm certain

    No, but used multiple devices and browsers.

    Just tested incognito, same thing.
