  • Question

  • I'm curious as to why my website would not show up in the SERPs when entering the query for my full URL, www.woodsonjoneschevrolet.com. When conducting this search Live.com returns this...

    We did not find any results for www.woodsonjoneschevrolet.com.

    Try one of these related suggestions

    My site has 81 pages indexed and ranks well for many terms. What would be the cause of being left out of SERPs for this term and even more alarming, why is MSN suggesting my competitors?? Thanks for any insight you can provide.

  • Hi,

    This is strange behavior. I'm submitting this for review. One positive note though:

    "Woodson Jones Chevrolet"  with and without quotes shows correctly, but not woodsonjoneschevrolet.

  • Yea, I rank just fine for branding terms. I'm mostly curious about why the MSN algorithm is creating a relation with my competitors. Local directories or something? Any ideas?
