I have a potential client that has an existing site designed in Front Page and using ASP. The site is generally lacking in content and has not had any keyword optimisation. These are all things that can be improved. My concern is with the construction of the site. Google has currently indexed only two pages within the site; the home page and one product page. When I do an exact search for this product by name, Google only returns one site in its results and it's not their site. It is returning a shopping directory site that has their product listed with a link to this page. I have checked the HTML of the site and viewed it with the Lynx browser and cannot see why Google is not 'seeing' the text content of this page. The home page it has indexed has no text content so I cannot do a similar check on that page.
Has anyone come across anything like this before? Am I missing something obvious?
I do know that they paid a company to do some online promotion for them a while ago, but they were not sure what this company was doing for the money. The site does use a cookie (but it is not required to view the page) and that cookie contains the url for a company that provides online promotion services - so I'm guessing this is the company they paid. Could this be potentially harmful to the client’s site? The company is called [deleted as per our guidelines]
