Windjobs.org ~ Meta info not being read RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My site's (Wind Jobs) meta info is not being read by live.com, I've resubmitted the site to twice in live.com's "
    Submit your site's URL" Is there something more I need to do?

    Sincerely,
    David

  • Okay. I just wanted to get on the same page.Unfortunately, there is no way to manually change the snippet info. However, I suggest submitting the sitemap with the <changefreq> dates set to daily. That might trigger a recrawl.

  • Hi David,

     

    when you say  meta info, what exactly are you meaning?

     

    Taking a stab at what you might be meaning:

     

    I see that we have you indexed:

     

    http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=site%3Awindjobs.org&form=QBRE

     

    have you tried submitting a sitemap to our tools? I also suggest reading the FAQs located at the top of this forum and at the top of the ranking forum to get a better understanding of how Live Search works.

  • Hi Brett,

    Thank you for your follow up.

    I have not submitted a sitemap as of yet but, I will.  I'm also going to read through your FAQs.

    In regards to the meta info, my site reads:

  • Hi Brett,

    Thank you for your follow up.

    In regards to the meta data on live.com windjobs.org reads:

    Untitled Document

    The Premier United States Wind Jobs Website. Please visit us again shortly


    but the meta data on the index page is:
    <title>windjobs.org - Wind Jobs</title>

    <meta name="DESCRIPTION" content="The #1 jobs site for career minded professionals seeking employment in the wind industry around the globe.">

    which should read in the search results as...

    windjobs.org - Wind Jobs
    The #1 jobs site for career minded professionals seeking employment in the wind industry around the globe.

    Please let me know what I can do to correct this. If it's submitting a sitemap to live.com tools, could you please sent me a link to that page.  

    Best regards,
    David

  • Dear Brett,

    Recently, I've launched a completely new version (v2.3) of my site windjobs(dot)org and I'm still not appearing any where in the Live.com search even when I submit a  search for "wind jobs".  I added the new site to your site submit but, that does not seem to help. Please advise.

    Sincerely,
    David Levitz
