Wrong Page In The Search Result
Posted 19 June 2008 - 05:34 AM
There might be a post about my problem on the site, but i couldn't really find it, so i will ask it:
We have a health events calendar website. On the index page there are the titles of the medical events listed, which is changing every month. So when we enter July, the index page will be a monthly view of medical events in July. my problem is that when searching for the name of a specific event in Google, i don't get the URL of the event listed but the index page. something like this (hope i'm allowed to link to highrankings.com ):
when searching for "Standard SEO Site Audit Consultation", i don't get the url http://www.highranki...eo-consultation listed in google but http://www.highrankings.com/. all this in the case of OUR site of course, not highrankings.com.
this is pretty annoying, because when a visitor searches for a certain event, he/she finds a link to our site, enters the site and voila: a page with many different medical events, he/she has to search the page for the specific event and only THEN the page of the event is accessed.
it's like getting a present for your birthday in a box, and when you open it, you find another smaller box. not funny!
my guess is that it MIGHT be because of poor keyword positioning and density in the events page. (if an event lasts for 5 days, then 5 textlinks on the index page are pointing to the event's page, the keywords being the title of the event; this way, the title of the event appears 5 times on the index page and only once on the page of the event). which would be very simple and normal, but the page of the event (let's say http://www.highranki...o-consultation) contains MUCH MORE info about the event then the index page.
I hope i wasn't too complicated.
If you understood anything from my post, please let me know your thoughts about this. thanks

It's nothing to do "keyword positioning" or the non-existent "keyword density"
DON'T copy the entire months events page onto the "home" page and it should correct itself after a few recrawls.

In your case, perhaps just remove the keyword phrase from the home page and that will probably help your inner page to show up instead.
But if not, then simply make it easy to get to the inner page from the home page, with an obvious link there, so that those who do get to the home page first will not have any trouble finding what they really want.
