I know the guys here dont like you posting URLs to your websites. So posts may get <snipped> or cut out.

And i think i remember seeing this post somewhere else also about the engines not indexing it. Id just make the animation in the top right which is flash into a nice small animated gif and give it a few weeks and search engines will devoure it.

Eliteweb, it is a GIF.

I would suggest submitting the home.html page to the engines and/or get rid of the swap image on mouseover code and just use an animated gif.

Good Luck


p.s Welcome to webmasterworld !! :)

<added> Also I may be wrong and someone else could probably tell you for sure, but the sitemap link is very close to the page colour and may be thought of as dodgy by the SEs but check with someone else to make sure <added>

Sorry Eliteweb I was talking about the index page :):)

Try making a paragraph out of the list of words at the bottom of the page. The engines may read that as keyword stuffing.

Why not position the text on the top instead of the bottom?

Hi ToyBoy2
Just a learner, yet starting to study Google.
Google only appears to list one page, then shows "more results from www.xyz.com".
The page it lists will be the one most relative to the key word search.
If you want surfers with keywords "cnc lathes" to be directed to the page with cnc lathes, then don't use those words in the text on any other page ESPECIALLY the index.page. Just use the words "cnc lathes" lots of times on the cnc lathes page, and this is the one Google will show.
In other words... take all that text off the front page, and put all the words on their respective pages.
The way you have it is great for the favourite paid inclusion sites, but Google works differently.
The art is going to be finding the balance between... maximising hits to the front page by attracting numerous different keyword hits. Or Maximising focused keyword hits to their respective pages.
If you want various keyword searches to come to your front door, leave it as it is.
If you want them to be served the picture of the machine they desire, then spread those words through out the site.
Maybe more "general" phrases would be better on that front index page, to collect hits from people who were not sure what they wanted.. i.e..put this in a H1 tag, then repeat it twice somewhere on the page
"Precision Machine, Machining, and Grinding Tool Makers - From a robust Precision Engineering Tool Manufacturer".
And leave any reference to the "inverted spindle" to its own page.
Google will show the first instance of a valid reference. Yours are all on that index page. Good Luck!
