Search results not linking to the correct page

Hi

I have added a Bing search facilitie to a cleints website, I've indexed each page and when I now test the search facility all results returned only direct you back to the home page and not to the page you searched for?

Please can you confirm why this is.

The webiste link is below:

www.asp-removals.co.uk

I am not able to reproduce the problem.

I visited the page you linked to and entered:
move

in the search box. this returned 2 results, the firs one links to the home page, the second to the packing page.

Hi Jason

I have replicated the search you have completed above and this works thanks, but when I try to carry out a search on each of the other pages within the Intro page (for example), the search results provide the Meta description title to that page which is great, but the link sends me back to the Intro page.

For example, carry out a search within the Introduction page, and search for Contact, the result displays a heading of Contact, but the link which should take you to the Contact page, takes me to the Intro page.

How can I place the correct links within the results page?



Thanks

the main driver of the bing search is the keywords meta tag. on your contact page, the keywords meta tag does not contain the key word contact:


<meta name="keywords" content="Removal Companies in Bexleyheath, Bexlyheath Kent, ASP Removals, ASP, Removals in Kent, Removals and storage, A.S.P, Furniture removals, Kent removals, Storage, Removal company, House removals" />

it looks like you have the same content for the keywords meta tag on all of your pages, each page should have unique keywords that pertain to that specific page in your site.

I'll update the Keywords, many thanks
