Reversed characters when inquiring about my site using Google search - flash related?
on Feb 2, 2012 at 9:48:17 pm

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.

Intro:
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.

Problem description:
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?

Support files:
http://www.google.com <----Search term:[Semco Machine]to see the error
http://www.camtrac.com/media/nav.swf <--- The swf navigation menu
http://www.camtrac.com/gallery/results1.jpg <--Basic result
http://www.camtrac.com/gallery/results2.jpg <--site:camtrac.com semco machine result

If this is not flash related, I apologize and will post this in another forum. Any suggestions or solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and best wishes, Michael
