Besides the fact that my site building thing is not doing it right!

I need help with getting my site "crawlable". Gardenstew suggested I throw my stinky shorts out for you all to see, I guess I need a good bashing on website development.


How do I get it fixed, aside from starting over :oops:

Here's the site: http://www.highpeakcrossco.com

Thanks Stew!!!

And thanks all for the help.

Ok swan,

- Use standard <a> tag links for your main menu instead of the Javascript implementations that are there now. The search engine spiders will not be able to find their way through your site with the way it is now.

- Add keyword-rich descriptive titles to your pages e.g. on the home page I would put something like 'Christian wood crosses - Quality handmade and traditional'.

- If you do not want to change your main menu then maybe create a site map page which includes standard <a> tag links to all of the other pages on your site. And remember to link to this site map page with a standard <a> tag link somewhere on your homepage.

- Try as much as possible to section your text with keyword-rich H1, H2 etc.. tags

- your description META tag appears to be a bit screwy i.e. it has the <TITLE> tag inside it.

- Attach descriptive, keyword-rich text to the images on your site i.e. use the ALT attribute on the images

This is what I have to play with in the homestead sitebuilder:

"Head Tag"
<HEAD>http://www.highpeakcrossco.com/index.html</HEAD>


"Description"
<TITLE> High Peak Cross Company</TITLE> we design, make and sell quality handmade traditional Christian wood crosses, boxes and wall shelves.


I see this is the Dr. Watson analizer:
line #8: <HEAD> must immediately follow <HTML>
line #8: tag <HEAD> should only appear once. I saw one on line 3!
line #8: <HEAD> cannot appear in the HEAD element.
line #8: illegal context, <HEAD>, for text; should be in BODY, or TITLE perhaps.
line #8: no <TITLE> in HEAD element.
line #15: should not have whitespace between "<" and "5)>".
line #16: value for attribute top.onresize (reDo;) of element 5) should be quoted (i.e. top.onresize="reDo;")
line #19: unknown element <5)>.
line #19: <5)> cannot appear in the HEAD element.


This is like reading a different language!


Stew I don't even see an <a> tag.

I have the 3 above things that I can play with and adjust.


Thanks!! Swan

Does it go like this?

"Description"
<TITLE> High Peak Cross Company we design, make and sell quality handmade traditional Christian wood crosses, boxes and wall shelves. </TITLE>

I think you should ask HTML-related questions in the Website Design Forum

I got it!!

Thank you first off to GARDENSTEW- who got me going in the right direction! Thanks Stew!!

To ATNO/TW- Who kicked me right on through the goal posts!! Thanks ATNO!!

How it was solved:


I see this is the Dr. Watson analizer:

line #8: <HEAD> must immediately follow <HTML>
line #8: tag <HEAD> should only appear once. I saw one on line 3!
line #8: <HEAD> cannot appear in the HEAD element.
line #8: illegal context, <HEAD>, for text; should be in BODY, or TITLE perhaps.
line #8: no <TITLE> in HEAD element.

8 <HEAD>http://www.highpeakcrossco.com/index.html</HEAD>
9 <title>index</title>


I was stumped!!

In the "advanded" section of my "site builder" it had: <HEAD>http://www.highpeakcrossco.com/index.html</HEAD>

I removed it and the line warnings went away.


I removed the <TITLE> & </TITLE> from my discription and that warning went away.

"Description"
<TITLE> High Peak Cross Company</TITLE> we design, make and sell quality handmade traditional Christian wood crosses, boxes and wall shelves.

Thanks guys!!

Swan
