Let me get this straight you are saying that if you have targeted keyterms in your title that match terms in your meta desc. as well that this won’t increase your ranking in Google.

I disagree, especially for local search marketing. If you are a local business specializing in say the Louisville, KY area. Adding the term Louisville to your title and meta descrip will help smaller businesses gain an advantage in search engine rankings where they may have been pushed out by larger companies that don’t focus just on local areas.
