I am developer and know very little about website marketing. I have a client that is having a very strange thing happening when you search for the name of their company, "Round Tree landscaping". See image below. How in the world is this happening? It is the same on Bing and Yahoo but different on Google. I did a search on the code for that page and there are no metatags or title tags that have any wording like this. I need to prevent this somehow.

Different SE's will pull different data unless you give them the data, even then they can still put what they like.

Those descriptions are probably different variations of text that appear somewhere on your page.

Whether that is right or wrong, that's just my explanation for it.

The site has been hacked.  It's a Joomla site.  Either the hacker has exploited a Joomla security hole, or the access details have been compromised.

SelfMade, you're completely wrong. :)

 

The site has been hacked.  100%.  I've seen this most often on Wordpress sites, but it can happen to anybody.
