|there is no title, and i would imagine the meta-description is also not there... |
Not even a single HTML tag.
|How does it look in the serps? |
Lost the sitelinks, and the text snippet is the text error from PHP saying it's failed to connect to the DB.
|And what is the cache date? 4 months old? |
No, July 12.
|Does WMT say anything for diahnostics, like short titles or meta descriptions? |
Ah, good question - but I've never used WMT on this site.
|Sucks to loose the sitelinks though... |
I'll get them back when I fix the problem.
One other point on "authority" which I realise is a better way of expressing this - every other informational (eg, not ecommerce stores) site in this niche links to this one, almost without exception.
