How long ago did you add the meta description?
Takes a couple of weeks to be refreshed on google.
Search NZ and you are the only one listed.
This shouldnt make any difference but you could try lowercase.

Meta description will have about 0.01% impact.

The clue is that your search was for "theanswerguy", and there simply isn't sufficient reference to that word on your page.

The keyword you search for has to have a reasonably high percentage of the text content on the page.

Also, the term "theanswerguy" is unlikely to be ever used in a real search situation - you need to include target words and importantly, phrases, that a typical user of your type of site would use when doing a search.

>lower case for what??
<META NAME="Description" CONTENT

Also if you search for your keywords google says this:
The following words are very common and were not included in your search: who what when why where how.

You may want to change these also, to broden your listing
