"search" Results

Recommended Posts

Why is it, when I do a search for my site through one of the search engines (Yahoo, Google, etc.), the results are shown as "Index.html" instead of the name of my site? How can I change this to show the site name? Apparently everybody else on the internet has figured this out. (I guess I'm "slow")

 

Thanks!

Hi Colette and welcome to the forums :)

 

Do you have a title in your "index.html" page?

Hi Colette and welcome to the forums  :)

 

Do you have a title in your "index.html" page?

 

Um.....no :-)

I was under the impression it HAD to be named "index.html". Can you tell me how to title it and still follow the "index" rule?

 

Thanks!

Colette

Welcome to the forums Colette :)

 

edit your index.html page and add yout text to the title tag, like this

 

 

 

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml

<head>

<title>Your Title Here</title>

<link rev="made" href="mailto:" />

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

 

</head>

Thanks! I'll give it a try. If I have trouble I may be back :) (See what happens when you let just anybody play on the internet?)
