Ok, here it goes:

When viewing search results on Bing.com and rolling over the search results then many of them show a vertical line to the right. When moving the cursor to the vertical line it shows additional information about this website.

I am banging my head against the wall trying to find out how this works since my websites do not have this vertical line.

Can someone please tell me the answer?

Thank you!

it is showing the text on the page,
difficult to say why not yours . are your pages indexed yet? perhaps it is reading from their cache, just a guess though

Is there actual text on your web pages (i.e. they're not just images)?

Can you give us the url of a couple of your sites?

DWcourse - there is text on the webpage. The url is www.slideconverter.com (http://www.slideconverter.com). I viewed the code of some other websites that showed the text to the right and was not able to find an explanation. The text can be found in the source code but with no clear correlation.

On one of my websites (http://www.slideconverter.com/PriceList.htm) it shows the text to the right but the reference to where it comes from in the source code doesn't make any sense to me.

Thanks for your help.

No, there isn't any text on that page (http://www.slideconverter.com/). It's all images which search engines can't read (you don't even use alt tags). So as far as bing is concerned you have an essentially empty page.

Actually, it's a little surprising that you get the content showing for http://www.slideconverter.com/PriceList.html since it's a frame page. I believe google only indexes the pages under their file name not under the file name of the frame.

Bottom line, with your current structure - using images in place of text and using frames - don't expect to have much luck in any search engine.

I thought the mega tags count as text and are there for the search engines to find (keywords, etc). Is there a way to include "invisible" text on the webpage? I did these webpages myself and I am far from being a web designer.

Is there a major mistake that I am making on these webpages? I mostly do PPC advertisement and therefore don't try too much to work on the organic search.

Is there a way to include "invisible" text on the webpage? Possibly, but it's sure way to flagged as a bad guy, and then you'll never show up on any searches.

If you do PPC, the I wouldn't worry about organic searches. If you want to be picked up by search engines you need a regular website with text and images, not only images.

well if you are starting to worry, presumably thats why you posted the question , cant see why you cant concentrate on organic also . Certainly does no harm
