Google is indexing my second page and not my HOME page. How do I correct this so the Home page will get indexed?

Also....now that I have renamed my website through Yola when will my old Synthasite website stop being listed because both old and new sites are showing up even though I unpublished my Synthasite website over 2 months ago.

Thanks for any help!

If your site is just starting to get indexed it will just be a matter of time.

Your SEO descriptions are a little long on your home page.
The page title should be less than 70 characters and the descritpion should be less than 150 characters (its 223 now)

Fix that and then just be patient. Search engine ranking is a long and tedious thing.

Just keep adding great content to your site and everything will fall into place,

PS> When i said 'page title' i meant 'window title' as its known in the Yola builder.

At the risk of sounding stupid...what is SEO? I am so new at this...lol.

As for my page title....it though it was just Tranquil Harp at the top....or maybe I am misunderstanding this too?

Hi DJ, sorry i added that comment under my first reply a little late - its your window title that is to long not your page title.
SEO is just a term for search engine optimisation.
