Changing what google says !!!

Post by MaHoNeY1988 on November 21st 2010, 2:42 am

I was wondering where on my forum panels I could go and change what is says when I'm Googled. This is what it says when I Google my site.

Of course this is not the best thing to get views to my website when it says "Log in" instead of my site name. and the description needs to be changed.

That has all the right information . It has my title right and all the stuff I originally typed into it . But when Google the title of the website just says log in and doesn't even have the right description to the site.

when you google my site which is www.thereaperforum.com for the title is says "log in" and doesn't even have the right description that I have saved on my forum settings. The title on my admin panel in the settings you told me to go to says "the reaper forum" if you need more information on what I mean I can post screen shots tomorrow.

Theres gotta be something not right. If it's on Google, have you tried other search engines? If you do think its Google, try to look over your meta tags and others

well Bing, yahoo, and google all say the same thing and none of them are right. My meta tag came directly from google and that is the only one I have.

Sanket I have already tried this as the first person said the same thing. All the information in them setting are right with what I want it to say when my site is google. But it's not showing up that way when it's goggled. Also Darren1 that didn't work either. No where on my forum on any settings that I can find does my title say "Log In" but when you google my website it says title "Log In".

Yes, if you have changed it lately. Google will take its own sweet time to index it once more. Its not more of a live thing.

correct.
you have to give it time for the google bots to gather the info, and thats pretty much unpredictable, but you can always try to contact google support and ask them as well.

Its strange how the bots work sometimes. you can have a small forum that dont have many member and no activity and it will show up in a google search, then you can have a large forum, with much activity and it dont show up.. lol
So i guess it's all on how the bots gather the info to then be generated in the search engine?
