'Print', 'email' and 'back to' texts in google search results.

As in the subject: I can see that 'Print', 'email' and 'back to' texts are present in the google search results. Exactly in the short description appearing below the title. How to prevent them from doing that? Is there a way to get rid of them from the Google's results?

I'd guess that you don't have a meaningful meta description or have a very short "short" description on the page?  So Google is just showing the first "text" in the page content after the searched for phrase.

This is extremely common and really only cosmetic, unless you think it puts people off. Easiest would be a longer short description, but you could try removing title & alt content from print/email images etc, except that may not be helpful to your visitors.
