Hi,


I am urgently trying to figure this one out. I am working with anther company to try and make correction and alter a symfony mvc located at flaunt.com. Everyone here has been very helpful in answering questions I have an I am very grateful for the help.

This question is kinda of odd and I am wondering if this error could be purposeful made. The web site google search results cached page displays a title that is odd and not correct and also there is text that is not supposed to be there and also there is a strange title for the video that is playing in the flash video player that appears on the homepage. However when you click the title in the google search results it takes you to the normal correct page, but if you go the cached page you will find the page I described initially.

to find the error that i am talking about google the word flaunt and check the top link it says two girls one cup??? and when you click the cached link you see that it is very strange? However if you click the title link it takes you to how the page is supposed to look.

I have 3 questions:

1. Did someone have to physically enter this to create this result?

2. If not how can I avoid these types of things happening in the future?

3. Is there a way to correct this?
I checked the view.yml and it seemed to normal?

thanks very much for all your help,

Nick

sorry, dont find your example.
maybe google shows different results for different countries.

please provide links to the original page and the link with the google cached page.

Couldn't find it via Google search either.

1) If it's been crawled from your domain at a previous date, a cached version might remain with Google. If it's genuinely from your domain, I don't understand how someone else might have created it, unless it's from a time when the domain was owned by someone else (but it shouldn't remain in Google for long once the domain went down).

2) Best way to avoid crap getting indexed by Google is to avoid it getting crawled in the first place. Use NOINDEX in your view.yml or robots.txt for this.

3) I would say the way to correct this is to check whether your site still has that page or is capable of generating it, and preventing it getting crawled. You can then go into Google Webmaster Tools and just remove an indexed URL that you don't like. If needed, set up 301 redirects accordingly in the process.

Hi,

Thanks for all the help.

The title has changed, which is good but

the cache link in the #1 result when flaunt is searched.

google only

the link is:

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:1sdLktn 8b2oJ:flaunt.com/+flaunt&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk& gl=us

This url is getting the result I am talking about.

thanks

As per the above advice, only use NOINDEX if you genuinely don't want the search engines to crawl your site at all. However it sounds like you do: it's just the page title that is wrong.

Make sure the head metadata for all your pages is correct. Also, read the google guidelines on getting your content indexed; some search engines allow you to resubmit your site. However it should be crawled automatically - check your server logs.

If you like, post the first 20 lines of the indexed html page here, as seen by your browser. I would take a look whilst I am at work, but the website sounds like something that is NSFW (not safe for work)!
