We created a new site about a year ago - www.dorset-pct.nhs.uk
- due to a Trust merger. Prior to this we had three sites one of which was www.northdorset-pct.nhs.uk
. When i joined the org (a few years ago) i was asked to try to promote the site on google. I checked through the site after a little research and some advice and at the time there was a line in the meta tags which said robots no follow. I changed this and within a couple of weeks sure enough if you typed in North Dorset PCT into Google our site came up top.
I recently typed in Dorset PCT into google and we are nowhere to be seen - however, the old North dorset site does still come up top.
The page ranking within google is 4/10. I have had a look through the meta tags and they seem to be reasonable although personally I would probably have used a few more. Now one thing that came to mind is that the structure of the site has changed - every page is saved within a folder and each page is called index.asp - this is so that our breadcrumbs work. Could this be the problem with it being indexed properly?
Can anyone suggest what may be preventing us from being listed even within the first page? The main problem is that since the merger I have litle control over the site structure anymore as it was designed by a colleague.
I look forward to your responses.
