Thanks! But seriously, is that an answer to my question? Could you please elaborate a little bit further?
Thank you so much! That's awesome and I don't know how I forgot that. I also need to make that the contact page is not in the Sitemap right? Because, I got to know that even if the page is blocked in robots, or no index has been used it will still get indexed if the page is in Sitemap.
Thank you very much for answering on my post.
I am clueless as to what is happening with these two pages. The change happened just recently. What is more shocking is, the CONTACT page appears with SITELINKS which I have only seen with HOME PAGES so far.
While noindex would work to derank the contact page, bigger concern (and more interesting) IMO is why the home page doesn't rank for the company name.
If you're searching for [SampleOrg], eg, and on the home page you had the html text only in the form "Sample Org" with a space, Google's anti-Google Bomb filter might cause the home page not to rank.
Both the pages has SampleOrg mentioned in many places but not Sample Org in a single place. And being the HOME PAGE is has many mentioning than the CONTACT PAGE.
Some of the comparison between these two pages.
HOME PAGE CONTACT PAGE
Page Authority - 83/100 68/100
Linking Root Domains - 2,193 15
Total Links - 105k 15,582
MOZrank - 6.94 6.07
Internal Followed Links - 14,649 8,809
External Followed Links - 89,041 6,123
Followed Linking Root Domains - 1,958 15
Total Linking Root Domains - 2,193 15
Linking Root Domains Containing Anchor Text 'SampleOrg' - 534 2
Links Containing This Anchor Text - 6,774 2
Page Speed - 91/100 89/100
While all the above metrics favors the HOME PAGE, why does the CONTACT PAGE shows up in the Search?
I need some serious attention guys, please help me to find the reason behind this.
Thanks a TON!
