google verified

asked a few times i guess.

having a nightmare doing this.

my website http://www.terrymcshane.co.uk
ive added all the meta data etc, and it wont verify.

now my site is registered with 123 reg, when i go to my control panel i can add meta info there also. but no good.

when i have put the data in freeway pro it still wont verify it.

settings are as follows

name box verify-v1 (no quotes)
value box oyzRqYNsBiX8IAiZ/FopS53/YApIKKBw2rTXK3IZ2P4= (no quotes again.)

if i check the source code of the page i get the following

http://www.terrymcshane.co.uk

after tag insertion i click the verify button in google webmaster tools and get the message

Verification status: NOT VERIFIED
Last attempt Feb 22, 2008: We couldn’t find the verification meta tag.

whats going on. bah

any ideas

terry

HI,
if I got to your website and look at the source, I find that it’s in a frame set. I think this is what the problem is.

Your website is apparently here, and NOT at the URL you posted:
http://85.92.73.101/

All the frameset does is give the appearance that the site is where you think it is.

You need to talk to you hositng provider about removing this frame set and using just the domain name to serve the site. Failing that, move the site elsewhere. There are a couple of poeple here who offer site hosting.

hi paul.

youve got me a little lost now.
with 123-reg i have a few options which may solve the problem, they are

Non-framed web-forwarding

Framed web-forwarding (which is selected)

Non-framed web-forwarding to a single page

Framed web-forwarding to a single page

No web-forwarding
framed webforwarding is selected at present.

Terry,

Have you bought any hosting from 123-reg? or just a domain?

If have you just bought a domain, and wanting to point the domain elsewhere, to some other hosting? That is what web-forwarding is for.

i have only bought the domain name from 123-reg.
the hosting is on a friends server and costs me nowt, which is nice.

brian

google verified is something which (apparently) makes it easier for googles webbot things to see and index your site, but obviously there are others out there) and therefore makes your website appear higher in web searches. this isnt a guaranteed meathod but does help it become more visible.

the only problem i do have now is getting the website to have the website name in the browser and not 85.92.73.101.

if you have any ideas that would be lovely.
other than that im very happy with which the site looks.
any comments would be welcome.

You need to create a DNS (Domain Name Server) entry somewhere and
point that domain name at your friend’s IP address. I use http://
easydns.com for this, and like it very much. Cheap, highly available,
easy to configure.

Many registrars are also selling DNS hosting, you might check with
123 to see if they offer it.

Note that you will need to make a configuration change at your
registrar, to tell them that the “official” DNS for your domain is
wherever you have configured it to be. They won’t know, otherwise.

Your friend may need to tweak the configuration on his server in
order for the site to be recognized by name, but that’s something to
figure out once you have DNS hosting set up.

This doesn’t improve your ranking, sorry. But it isn’t a bad thing to
do, as it helps you find and fix things that would cause Google to
regard your site in a poor light. It is that process of fixing your
site that can improve your ranking, not the fact that you’re doing
the ‘verified’ thing.

Hi Brian,

For a start:

  1. Keep one page for a subject
  2. Lots of HTML text more the better, about that subject.
  3. Use H1, H2 style etc.
  4. Make sure all your alt text is relevant to the page subject
  5. Make sure you have links into that page using the subject in mind - e.g. the link “my subject” goes to a page titled “my subject” and even call the file name my-subject.html
  6. Keywords can be a pointer to the search on that page - keep them very short and use key phrases (more than one word).

Its not rocket science, its mostly common sense. Don’t just talk about what you do, do talk about what you think people will type in to find you (sublte difference here). So the links and page tiles reflect these search words.

Pages like “My work” or “portfolio”, aren’t very helpful, have you ever searched for “about us” or “what we do”. But you might search for “product name” in “area”. So it makes sense to use these words in links, pages titles, and file names.

There is no point in competing in a very busy search area, unless you want to spend money. Its sometimes better to be top at other searches that the big names don’t cover, rather than get nothing at all. Hence for example our following strategy:-

Our new dedicated hosting service is called is called “ineedwebhosting.co.uk” specially named so to got some response from the search engines. Web hosting as you can imagine is a very, very competitive search area. A search of “i need web hosting” does do quite well in a UK search, even amongst the big names, also if you search for “Freeway hosting” this also brings us up in the searches.

Joe, thanks for the link, more reading this pm!

A couple of questions!

  1. what are H1/2 styles?
  2. how do I add key words?

I read something that meta tags are important, are they ?

Brian,

  1. what are H1/2 styles?

H1, H2 styles (See Freeway Pro Styles edit box) structure the text on your site, and help the search engines find out which is the most important text. so for instance your would probably make a H1 style for your main page text heading (an add in some keywords mentioned below). H2 for a sub heading etc.

See here:
http://www.w3.org/2002/08/extract-semantic

  1. how do I add key words?

Key words are added via page > Meta Tags > You will see a Softpress Meta Tag.

You create two more…

  1. name = description value = text description of your page adding keywords below (this will appear in the search engine listing)
  2. name = keywords value = your product name, area, etc,
