Hi,

Randy brought up some interesting points in a previous thread and it got me looking further at our site and what google is indexing.

I know normally, you can copy a sentence of your site (if the content is original) and then paste it and it will most likely show your site in the results.

Our site [removed]

For example, see the text on the homepage (on the left column under 30 day Guarantee)

"We offer the Highest Quality Designer Replica Sunglasses. Wholesale sunglasses distributor since 2002"

When doing a search, nothing comes up in Google. Yahoo is fine though.

Question: Is there something with the code of our site that is preventing Google spider from reading our site? This seems to be what is happening because sometimes I notice in the results that the description is some

The site has be around for a long time.

I appreciate any help.

In the SERP Jill linked to, note how many of your pages are using that exact phrase followed immediately by a keyword. That's often referred to as "Mad Libs content" and it's probably not helping you.

"...probably not helping you ..." is putting it mildly, in my opinion.

What's a search engine to do with virtually identical meta information?
