Title: Google Search isn't pulling my meta title/description!
Post by: cmgRyanP on 08-02-2018, 16:33:56
We have an issue with our webstore www.BettiePage.com, and were looking for some more input. Hopefully the research we’ve done in the meantime will help. Here’s a full breakdown of the situation:
The problem:
What we’ve tried:
What we’ve learned:
We looked more into the Fetch discrepancy, as suggested in this article and only found one thing that doesn’t quite add up
Asynchronous AJAX issue? We looked at the Downloaded HTTP response and it’s definitely wrong. There’s ONLY headers. No other content.
If anyone can look at this problem and give us a new/different lead not mentioned above, we’d be very appreciative. Unless of course in your opinion something we’ve already tried is the likely culprit, please let us know (with a little more info) what we can do going forward.

Hey,
Just searched for Bettie Page in google.

Your homepage has a title but Google is unable to crawl your site.
checked your robots file where sitemap URL is missing.
and when I search for homepage/sitemap.xml, it gives me 404 error. it means your site doesn't have a sitemap. So first solve the issue of the sitemap and then add the proper URL of sitemap in the robots file.

once you are done with this, do manual SE submission from google webmaster and request for indexing.

I hope this will surely solve your issue.
Let me know if it works or not.  !-!
Good luck.

In some cases, having too many pages with duplicate TITLE tags or META descriptions can lead Google to rank the wrong page or filter that META description. De-duplicating your TITLEs and META descriptions is a good practice anyway, but making sure that each page has its own unique and relevant description can also help insure that Google sees value in those descriptions.

Hi all, thank you for your help. We were able to resolve this issue. It appears that CloudFlare was blocking the Google Bots from crawling our website. We removed their name servers from our DNS settings and that was the solution that we needed to fix the issue.
