Yahoo! Shows Different Site's Title & Description For Google.com

Extremely weird, conduct a search at Yahoo! for Google and right now, what comes up is google.com but with the title that reads, "Elisha Morgan Gemologists." The click does take you to Google but still, the title is not Google's title. In fact it belongs to this site listed in the Yahoo! Directory.

Here is a picture for proof.

So weird. You will notice that www.emgemologist.com, the site that's title is displayed, goes to google.com.

SEW, yes, it goes to Google.com, like we said. But it does not have the title and description of the emgemologist site, it shows Google in the title.

Probably entirely attributable to the Yahoo directory listing. Kind of like the NOODP thing at G and MSN.

I cannot tell you exactly how weird this is. I have a pending lawsuit against this guy and I've been researching the hell out of him...
