[Pro] Google search

Hi, I’ve uploaded my website that I built with Freeway Pro, but when I search for it in Google, underneath the title instead of a description it has this:

50 miles FOC. e. c. i. v. r. e. s. e. m. a. s. e. h. t. g. n. i. r. e. f. o. r. e. i. r. u. o. c. r. e. h. t. o. n. a. y. b. e. c. i. r. p. n. o. n. e. t. a. e. b. e. b. o. t. r. e. v. e. n. e. t. n. a …

I don’t have anything like that in my website to my knowledge, I’m new at this, can anybody help me, please?

Many thanks

Nadia

Nadia,

Your page has no real text or semantic value. Your meta information is
misspelled and poorly implemented. What you are seeing in the google
results is the googlebot scraping bits of alt text and what-not trying to
understand what your site is about.

This is what your site looks like to a search engine:

The promise of Freeway Pro is that you don’t have to know anything about
page code to design a page. This is true. What very few people at the
Towers will admit to is that if you care about search engines or
cross-platform browsers or “why doesn’t my page look or behave like I
expect” then you will have to get your hands a bit dirty with page code.

My advice is to start using text as text, not graphic text. Start learning
how to write an outline of your page. Start learning what some of the basic
html tags mean/are meant for. Start learning a bit about how css works, so
that you may master how Freeway Pro generates it for you. Then search
engines will love you :slight_smile:

Hi Ernie,
Thanks for your help, I shall do some research.
Is there any way, or program you can get, to see what my site looks like to a search engine?

I’m using Safari with the Developer Tools enabled in OSX Lion:
http://coolestguyplanettech.com/downtown/where-are-web-developer-tools-and-how-show-and-dock-them-browser-window-safari-osx-lion-107

Use this to 1) disable images, 2) disable styles, disable Javascript and
then you will have a good visual idea of what your page looks like.

Another tool that I frequently use is the Semantic Data Extractor,
http://www.w3.org/2003/12/semantic-extractor.html

The SDE shows basic meta information and an outline from extracted text
markup for your page. Search engines perform a similar function to
understand the structure of your site and assign importance/relevance to
its content.

Finally, the source I use for html and css references is still the
W3Schools http://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp

Don’t lose heart if a lot of HTML and CSS seems like gibberish. It won’t
always.

Best of luck to you. :slight_smile:

It would also be worth your while visiting the PHPFF action webpage at

http://www.freewayactions.com/product.php?id=019

There read the section about Special Names and then implement them in your contact form.

With each field selected look under the 3rd Tab in the inspector and see if what you have matches the suggestions.
