#3625 Se Rank - Getting No Results From Google.

Posted by withmagic on 31 July 2009 - 07:28 AM in SEO Software & Discussions

Hi, I am having the same problem I think. I have downloaded the free version of SERank to see how well it works and so far it doesn't. I fill in the keywords OK but I get to the rank checking with yahoo US and the progress bar gets almost to the end and then just sits there as if it is stuck for hours. Yesterday I left it for 2 hours without result and I have just cancelled it today after 5 hours with it still checking. Is there something wrong? Something I should be doing? Or am I just not leaving it to check for long enough?
I would be grateful for any assistance, thank you Jenny

#3612 Text For Images

Posted by withmagic on 29 July 2009 - 10:09 AM in SEO Software & Discussions

Hi,
Is it impossible then to add text to all images on the photo album sites in iweb?
If so, and that seems crazy since the point of the programme is to allow you to tag all areas of a site that a search engine would not otherwise pick up. Is there anyway around that other than redesigning the site so that any images descriptions that you want the search engines to include are on non photo album pages?

Whilst I have your attention too, what are the custom meta tags relating to?
Thank you for any help Jenny

#3546 Google Verification

Posted by withmagic on 07 July 2009 - 04:41 AM in SEO Software & Discussions

Hello, can you please help me again. I successfully verified my site with google using Sitemap Automator last week and then purchased a domain name from GoDaddy and put that onto the site.The site is made in iweb 09 and published to MobileMe. Originally the URL was http://web.me.com/go.../paulgottschalk
now you can also reach the site by typing in http://www.paulgottschalk.com
When the first page of the website comes up in the browser it reads http://www.paulgotts...lk_Studios.html
Now when I try to verify the site Google tells me that it does not exist.
The verification file has uploaded O.K to www.paulgottschalk.com/ but the Google file will not appear in the browser.The same happened when I tried without the final /.
Can you sort me out please?

Thank you for your help so far, the status 402 is on the crawler access page under the robots.txt file. It says 'http://web.me.com/robots.txt then gives the status as 402. This has been the same since the site was submitted the number of hours ago vary, as though it has tried several times.At the moment it says 5 hours ago.
The test results on the same page give me this Googlebot Googlebot-Mobile

Thank you. I don't know what I missed before but now I have a green tick!
My last query is that on the crawler access page I have a status 402.
I can't find anywhere what this means. Do you know?
Thanks very much
Jenny



#3492 Url's Not Allowed

Posted by withmagic on 24 June 2009 - 12:03 PM in Sitemap Automator

Most likely you added your Website in Google Webmaster Tools with the www portion but scanned it in Sitemap Automator without the www portion (or vice-versa)

Without seeing the actual error code, however, I cannot know if this is the actual reason.

What is the exact error that Google is giving you?


Hi, thanks for getting back so soon. It could'nt be a mistake with the www. as the site is iweb published to idisk and the site is http://web.me.com/go.../paulgottschalk

this is the error page Google is giving me.

The web site the errors are refering to is my other site also iweb and published to mobile me and Google has given it the status OK so I assume nothing is wrong with it.
THe only code is in the crawling status results and that is 402
Look forward to hearing from you, Jenny



#3484 Verify At Root Level

Posted by withmagic on 24 June 2009 - 07:09 AM in Sitemap Automator

Hello, me again, I have just looked at the crawl stats pages for both my sites and they both ask me to verify at root level .I have no idea how to do that. Both sites have already been verified OK with Automator with Google, but it still asks for more verification?
Can some one tell me how to proceed please? Both websites are iweb and published to idisk.
When I first tried to publish the website with the URL problem I got a 404 error that it could not publish to the correct file but to try again and it was fine the second time.
Thanks Jenny.



#3483 Url's Not Allowed

Posted by withmagic on 24 June 2009 - 06:51 AM in Sitemap Automator

Hello, I need some help here as Google has totally confused me.
I have recently sent 2 sitemaps to Google webmaster one for each of my websites.
One of them was given status OK. The other has 6 sitemap errors, each saying URL not allowed.
What puzzles me is that all the errors are the links from one website to the other, and the website
which has been given the OK has exactly the same links to the one which has been given the errors.
Can you please tell me why this is and what I need to do next.
Thank you so much Jenny
