I have a page on a client site where we 301'd a bunch of pages after a restructure, and now one of the top "sitelinks" that displays when they come up in the SERP shows the title from the old version of a page. Big problem, because what shows is part of what we got rid of in the whole repositioning we did :( What can I do?

You can remove that URL from being a sitelink via  your GWMT account.

Hi Jill. Well, It's Bing. Do they have a similar tool in their admin? Also - I don't actually want to remove that page, rather want it to just have the correct (current) title, and not the title from the old page.

Bing has webmaster tools. But I don't know if they have sitelink removal as part of it. I haven't used it much because traffic from Bing is so low as to not be worth my time.

And, sadly, there are few other options. :( You can't really tell the search engines what to do. If you have the correct title on the page now, then you've basically done what you can do. The search engines will choose to display whatever they want, and will update -- if they update -- on their own schedule. (Google, for instance, has been known to display their own idea of what the page title "should" be, without regard to what title the webmaster entered.)

 

With any luck, Bing will notice before too long that your page title has changed and update accordingly. In the meantime, your only other option would be to remove the sitelink (assuming Bing has that option -- like Jill, I haven't spent much time exploring their Webmaster Tools options).

Torka: Thanks. That's what I needed to know, though I was hoping there was some way to fix this glitch.
