When searching for my website on Google, instead of Art In Hand Gallery, which is my title, I get html too. I added html to improve look, but don't want it showing up on Google search. What should I do?

Hello Kim,

Stating the obvious, the first thing is to remove the code from your page

Go into Google Wemasters Tools and remove the page from their reference list. That now means that it will disappear immediately and it shouldn't return.
There is an immediate removal tool in their collection you just need to follow instructions.

Hi Kim, If you set the page desc. in Yola, just remove that HTML out. I don't think you are aloud to add HTML code in the desc. Can you wrap that above search results in <!-- and end it in --> so we can see the code? It rendered on the forum instead of showing up.

EXAMPLE:



<!--

YOUR CODE HERE

-->


Thanks!

Hello Kim,

Thank you for your email. It appears that you have a code under the 'Window Title' of your site. Please login to your sitebuilder and click on the properties tab on the right hand side. If you scroll down a bit, you will see a field marked 'Window Title'. Please go ahead and delete the code that is in that field. Here is a screenshot of where to find it on your site:


I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance!

Thank you for your help. I've taken out the code for the Window title. I imagine it might take a little time for Google to register the change?

Hello Kim,
You are absolutely correct. It will take some time for Google to re-spider your site and see that there have been changes. When these changes are detected Google will make the appropriate changes.
Cheers!
