View Full Version : Problem with site title in search engine

03-09-2010, 12:47 AM
I have created and launched a web-site using Dreamweaver 8. When a search is done using google, the content displayed in the results does not match the information in my index page. The content seems to be a legacy from some other job I did.

To demonstrate, search for BMW HEADLIGHT REPAIRS. The 3rd or 4th result should be my site www.bmwheadlightrepairs.com (http://www.bmwheadlightrepairs.com).

Here is the code which is in the top of my index.html file.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>BMW Headlight Adjuster Repairs and Kits</title>
<link href="extcss5.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<meta name="keywords" content="Odometer, e39, 2000, 2002, 2003, halogen, xenon, Gears, gear, Wheel, Cog, Speedo, Speedometer, Repair, BMW, Porsche, rolls, vw, holden, audi, saab, volvo, ford, Mercedes, mazda, commodore, skyline, nissan, toyota, Instrument, seat, recliner, headlight, adjuster, adjusters, parts, kits" />
<meta name="description" content="Repairs to BMW headlight adjusters, Repair kits, Odometer gears and repairs, Seat recliner gears." />
<div id="wrapper">
<div id="banner"><img src="bmw banner 1.gif" alt="repairs only banner" width="767" height="163" /></div>
<div id="leftcol"><div id="nav"><br />
<br /> <!--more of these lowers the nav buttons -->
<li><a href="warranty.html">Warranty</a></li

><li><a href="how to send.html">How to send it</a></li
><li><a href="odometer gears.html">Odometer Gears</a></li
><li><a href="odometer repairs.html">Odometer Repairs</a></li

As you can see, the words "Repairs-Podiatry,Nail Drill, Odometer Gear, Odometer Repair..." which appear in the google search result, do not appear in my index code.

Thanks for any help, Richard.

that must be annoying ,but im sure this will resolve, if you have a site map registered at google, re submit it , that may speed it up

BTW you have on line 37 a double quotation mark delete one of them

Yep, Google can take its sweet time to catch up woth site changes. Agree with Ed that a sitemap submit is a good idea.

A sitemap will typically help with any issues the spider has crawling your website. I think the frequency in which the spider visits your site is more a product of how much traffic and how often the page changes. Not 100% on this, but it makes a lot of sense imho.
