Some good tips for running a more efficient small business.

Trying to determine why Google would be showing an Open Directory Title & Meta Description sometimes, when the rendered page content has a NOODP tag in it.

To consider:
-Site built w/ AngularJS (tags, body content, etc.)
-The Render of the page looks fine and is fully rendered.
-The Fetch of the page (shown below) indicates that the DOM isn't loaded & the Titles, Meta Tags & other page content aren't there.
-Doubt it is related to the SERP visibility, but the Fetch also appears to be crapping out mid-JavaScript about 140 lines into the source code & doesn't show the whole page source.

Any reason to be concerned (for Google only) or is the complete render a validation that Google is seeing our pages correctly. The SERP varies by day, location, etc. and I would say "mostly" shows the DOM-enabled Title and Meta Desc.

I'm coming to one of two possibilities:
1) Google is testing the ODP snippet vs. the actual snippet for CTR, etc.
2) Google is not consistently seeing the rendered page content & tags
