Does anybody know if having the phrase "Search Results" on the top of a page can affect whether or not Google trusts it as a legitimate page?
Right now, I have category pages that say Search Results, due to the CMS. It has been updated, however, so that any pages as a result of manually entered keywords in the search box are noindexed. Only true categories are indexable.
I have added the proper signals Page Title, H1 tag, and paragraph of content. But it seems like these pages have an impossible time ranking for me. Product level pages rank perfectly, but frequently show up for middle to head terms that should be going to category level pages.
Thanks for anyone's input.
