Hello, and thanks very much in advance for any help. I'm new to coding, and I really needed to get a job, so I'm trying to learn as fast as I can. I appreciate the forum and all who can take a moment to read this.
I've inherited a website that has a funny problem with regard to Google search results. I'm posting the issue here because I suspect it may have to do with the flash menu at the site.
When using Google to search for for my site, camtrac.com , the expected results return (in what I think is called a "sitemap"; can someone confirm or correct me?) The results are correct, except that the some of the page names are spelled backwards, for example, [Parts] becomes [ S T R A P ] . Note the upper case and the space between each letter. This terminology and uppercase style is not included in the HTML for any page, which is why I think that the flash menu may be the culprit.
What I've tried, and my questions:
- I can't get a similar "site listing" result in Yahoo or Bing, so I haven't observed the error in another search engine.
- I've confirmed that my HTML files as described above do not contain uppercase "backwards" content.
- I do not have a flash editor, so I can't look inside the swf file.
- Is there specific code that each page should have so that search engines can interpret the content correctly?
- Is my flash menu placed or executed incorrectly?
