Site title won’t appear

So when I search my website (NewDesignLogo.com) and see the search results, of course I come up first, but the page title and description is a snippet from my homepage instead of what I typed in Settings>SEO for some reason. I need a title not a snippet, so how do I get it back?

Was your site published for any bit of time before you added those, @Optimus811? It sounds like Google cached info from the site before you added your own SEO title and description.

Actually come to think of it, yes. Last week when i published my site, one of the titles on my website read "Why choose NewDesignLogo?" which is now the title of the search result instead of my custom one.

Ok - it definitely sounds like that's what happened. Fortunately, Google should update that again when it recrawls your site. It's hard to say how long that will take, though, since Google doesn't really disclose information like that.

Alright i have recrawled it, but would it work if the domain is masked?

If you're using forwarding with masking, then you'll need to edit the HTML of the page that was set up to facilitate that forwarding, since that's the META data that Google is going to be getting.

So it appears that google index is not the problem, as now when i type in newdesignlogo.com my website appears top on search results, and it is the same snippet from my home page as my description and title..Is their anything else that could be a problem? I highly doubt it is google, maybe you can go into my account and fix it?

Google is showing what you have entered in Settings > SEO in the Weebly editor?
