hi guys , i hope u all are having a good day. I have a page that directs the user to a different site. the page is index.html , i have robots.txt which looks like

User-agent: *
Disallow: /logs/
Disallow: /up/

in my index.html i have all the meta tags including
now reading some more i found out that the <TITLE>.....</TITLE> was infront the meta tags so i rearranged the order to
<TITLE> ... </TITLE>
So was this the problem my page never got indexed
i also use
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="3;
to redirect it to a different site does this affect indexing by any chance?

THank u all.

The ordering of the META and TITLE tags shouldn't be a problem.

If your index.html is just going to redirect visitors to another site's page, it doesn't really make much sense to index it.

If you put actual content (that's useful to your visitors) on your index.html, I think it will be indexed (I'm assuming we're talking about Google here).
