Hi

For some reason it appears Google is not picking up the text on any of my blog pages which seems to be having a negative effect with SEO. I have only just found this out and can't think why it would be doing this, all of the other pages in the site are being cached fine.

This is an example of one of my blog pages.
mailroomadvisor.com/dm50-franking-machine

However, this is all that shows up when you look at the page google has cached.
209.85.229.132/search?q=cache:YIrDfcQmJeIJ:www.mailroomadvisor.com/dm50-franking-machine+site:www.mailroomadvisor.com&cd=3&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk

But Google can obviously read the text as this is what you see when you click the text only link.
209.85.229.132/search?q=cache:YIrDfcQmJeIJ:www.mailroomadvisor.com/dm50-franking-machine+site:www.mailroomadvisor.com&hl=en&gl=uk&strip=1

Can anyone shed any light as to why this might be happening?

Thanks in advance for your help

As long as you see the text in the text-only cache then you know Google is indexing it.

Thanks for the fast reply Jill.

So even though the cached version of the page in Google is blank, this won't effect the rankings of the site as long as there is text in the text only cache?

Have you heard of this happening before?

Thanks again

Have you checked how your page renders with multiple browsers? I imagine it's a rendering problem and just something on the surface.

But it looks that way in Google, other browsers might also make the page not look right.

The times I've seen it before it's always come back to being something in the css instructions somewhere.

It may be a low (internal) PageRank issue. It could also be due to the way Google indexes blogs (they made substantial changes last October).

HOWEVER ...

A site query for your domain in Google Blogsearch brings up no recent results (nothing since January 20) and I cannot find anything resembling a blog on the site (although there is an RSS feed link).

Did you do a site redesign in January?
