When the Beckenham Folk Dance club was set up, the admin made a spelling mistake as below...
Berckenham Folk Dance Club
This has now been corrected to.....
Beckenham Folk Dance Club
but the Google search entry title still comes up with the spelling mistake, even though it leads through to the corrected address.
Question for Joe I think - How do we refresh the google search entry ?
Whenever you change or add a page on your site it is automatically submitted to search engines - you can see more details about this here.
However, Voice has no control over when the search engines actually update their indexes. Though usually it happens within a few days. (Bing tends to be faster at updating than Google)
Regarding the discoverability of your site - it may be worth us changing the URL of it to e-voice.org.uk/beckenham-folk-dance or similar, so that search engines can 'understand' it and thus be more likely to return the result high in the results list. Currently your site URL has a spurious 'myarea' in there. Let me know if you want me to change this for you!
Also adding your own domain name can help here - there are instructions on how to do this in the documentation.
Google seems to have sorted itself out but the spelling mistake still appeas on the site map name in theVoice back office.
How does that get fixed ?
Ah yes, well spotted! I'll change this to say Content Management or similar in an upcoming update!
Would you like me to change your site's URL to something clearer, or are you happy as it is?
Thanks for responding.
The site URL is now corrected and fine.
The problem seems to be that the back office content management Site title is not picking up from the website details page, so it is not self correcting. Can you make the back ofice content management tab name pick up from the website details page ?
This does not affect the live site, it just irritates people using the management system and is a worry that it may appear elsewhere.
Thanks for your help
The incorrect spelling in the admin pages will disappear soon as I've changed it on the test site to always have the title "Content Management" rather than the original name of the site when it was first created. I'll put this live soon but there are some other changes I'm testing on the test site first so will do them all together!
(And a load of updates to the documentation that I'm working on to go with it!)
Regarding the URL, what I mean is that your site is currently found at https://e-voice.org.uk/myareabeckenhamfolkdance which has a spurious 'myarea' in there - we could change this to https://e-voice.org.uk/beckenham-folk-dance or similar if you like. It might help with Google ranking as well as being easier for people to remember!
Let me know if you want to do this.
Another option is to add your own domain name in the future - so it could be something like www.beckenham-folk-dance.uk.
