Website Troubles (4 posts)

    I have a few questions that I hope you guys will be able to help me out with.

    1). My website has a title, but when I search it, it shows differently. If I Google search my website, the title is "Uncategorized", the website doesn't begin with https:// or http://www., it just lists the name of the website ending in .com. The description for the website lists "A description for this result is not available because of this site's robots.txt - learn more"

    If I search my website on Bing, the title of my website will come up as the name of my company, yet the words are squished all together and the name ends in .com. The website doesn't begin with https:// or http://www., it just lists the name of the website ending in .com. The description for the website lists "We would like to show you a description here, but the site you're looking at won't allow us"

    If I search my website on Yahoo, everything comes up the same as when I search on Bing, except the website ends in .com/?cat=1

    If I search my website on MSN, everything comes up the same as when I search on Bing.

    If I search my website on AOL, the title of the website is "Uncategorized", the website doesn't begin with https:// or http://www., it just lists the name of the website ending in .com. No description of the website is shown.

    How can I get to the point where that when I search for my website, it will come up as the name of my website with the proper website link (https:// http://www.nameofwebsite.com) and the right description of the website?

    2). The website is extremely slow and with all the web designers I've contacted, they've all said basically the same thing, my hosting isn't good enough. My website takes absolutely forever to load, would a certain type of hosting have anything to do with this?

    Yahoo uses Bing.
    MSN uses Bing.
    AOL uses Google.

    So just search Google or Bing...

    Now, assuming you are still using the theme from elegant themes, we must again note that they are your point of support for such issues.

    BTW, this response is not going to change. (Third post having to note this to you.)

    If you would post a link to your site I will take a quick look and respond with any issues related to site performance...without, we cannot begin to even guess..

    Do you have all the links/URLs indexed by search engines (irrespective of wrong descriptions and other problems)? If not, it can be because of your robots.txt file and/or incorrect meta data. What do you have in that file?

    The website is extremely slow

    Go for a speed test using tools like http://gtmetrix.com and optimize your site as per recommendations that will be included in the test report.

    my hosting isn't good enough

    Yes. Bad hosting can create all kinds of problems. Have a look at the WordPress recommended hosts.

    What do you think about GoDaddy hosting? That's the current hosting I am using, I believe I am using the Economy Hosting. Should I switch to Ultimate for an incredibly fast website?
