I have a joomla site and when I search for my domain in google, It shows on that page in the description is shows 'buy levitra etc'.
when I open my page and view source, i do not see the words levitra anywhere.
i searched my entire html/php pages and database and do not see the words anywhere.

How did those levitra words get there and how can I remove it.
it's not only on my computer, all our customers are seeing this

Maybe this answers your question: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35624?hl=en, have you added your site to google webmaster tools?

I'm not sure if that answers my question.
Right now I have title and meta tags as I am pasting here.
My question is how come when I search in google, they aren't pulling what is on my site, but garbage Levitra stuff,
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
  <meta name="robots" content="index, follow" />
  <meta name="keywords" content="denver kollel, denver torah" />
  <meta name="description" content="Denver Kollel - Because Torah Learning is for Every Jew" />
  <meta name="generator" content="Joomla! 1.5 - Open Source Content Management" />
  <title>Home</title>

Open in new window

Without knowing the name, URL or content of your site, it sounds like a major drug manufacturer (or possibly a lot of people who sell knockoff versions of the drug) has bought keywords associated with the name, URL or content of your site.

So you search for it, and the keywords tell Google to include those purchased results in the search.

My question to you was if you submitted your site to google officialy using their webmaster tools?

Your server may have also been compromised (hacked)

I think in your case your site get hacked this is why you having non appropriated keywords..

To find out you should compare the actual template folder with a good backup copy.
Hacker usually put the scripts in a new .php file or directly inside the template file.

To compare both template version you can use a free tool Winmerge

Good luck
