Today I will be addressing the following errors in webmaster tools;
610 – duplicate meta descriptions
21 – short meta descriptions
7 – missing title tags
573 – duplicate title tags
5 – non informative title tags
Step 1 – fix the non informative titles
All these pages are obsolete old pages so I will delete them and resubmit a site map.
Step 2 – fix missing title tags
6 missing titles are for quickview pages so I will leave them as theres no way to add a title.
The last one is a stray htaccess file within the css folder, I will remove this
step 3 – short meta descriptions
- become a retailer France
- test product page – disabled
- Football Equipment (old Category Page) Added new category with SEO text. Had to edit database manually as old category had bagzeed the URL
- kickster 6×4 bag french (make english on all for time being)
- next lot are all empty reviews which have no content but are messy so Ill swap the template in the xml file.
Step 4 – duplicate title tags
Lots of these seem to be from the auto generated reviews page so as Ive disabled that I will ignore those.
Changed titles on ‘become a retailer’ page and careers page
Changed all titles and descriptions for team bench products
Added new title and products to the ‘football training equipment’ category page
step 6 duplicate meta descriptions.
Having looked at these they are again caused by review pages and products in different categories as well as obsolete URLs. I am going to dissalow robots from all these directories and request Google removes them all. More info is available here:
