Hola

I have a question regarding stats in my webmaster account for a new website I launched last week

They have reported 226 title tags missing on my accessories and some radio items and I am a little concerned, however, we have checked the pages and the URLs have not changed!

For example - Motorola GM640
/radio/100057/Motorola-GM640-VHF-UHF-25Watts‎ (old URL)
radio/100057/Motorola-GM640-VHF-UHF-25Watts (URL on new website)

As you can see the URLs are the same, we also have a redirect running and a 404 error page should anything go drastically wrong

Google says I am missing title tags but as you can cleary see from the URL my title tags say "Motorola GM640 VHF/UHF 25Watts" so I am stumped, anyone here an expert on updating databases and mod-rewrite, perhaps we have made a mistake..........

Thanks

Simone

Question

Does Google not point you to where you are missing the title tags?

And does it say "title tags"? Not "title attributes", like you can put a title to your links and images?

Hola Nutty. Currently more than a few are reporting errors with Google Webmaster Tools. I looked at your code, and since the view source HTML has the title tag clearly in place I wouldn't worry about it. See webmasterworld thread here for some examples of others having problems with Google Tools reporting errors currently.

My guess is you do not have the error reported and it is an incorrect reading on google's part. Don't worry about this one

Hola Britt

Thanks for your reply

I am in Google Webmaster Tools in HTML Suggestions "Missing Title Tags"

This is reporting I have 226 title tags missing yet they are clearly there and when I do searches for keywords I knew we were on page 1 for, prior to launch of the new layout, those results are still in the same position and when I click the result it lands on the new page I created with my title intact!

Hola Logan

Thanks for your comment also, I have decided that I will not worry about this one since I have checked everything possible which could cause this, all except hittail as that is currently down

Traffic has slowed in April but as we have only been live 1 week tomorrow the change does not constitute the whole loss of traffic which is currently around 3,000 visits

We are receiving enquiries but it is minimal compared to a week ago and this has me scratching my head, we have checked our re-directs over and over but all that appears to be working

I did change the contact page back to what it was before as I decided not to change something that was not broken

Sounds like the best decision, Nutty
