I clicked a link on the "How-to Geeks" site and was delivered to this page.  I didn't notice the PHP error at the time, seems like it wasn't there initially, but appeared after I returned to the page.

What does it mean?

The image you uploaded is poor quality when enlarged to see the actual error messages.  From what I can see, it appears that there is a problem with expected variables.  This might be the case because you visited the site a second time and it did not pick up the variables or recorded them incorrectly from your first visit.

If you close your browser and then reopen it and go to the site; do you still get the same error message?
It just mean that those variables aren't defined before referencing them in the PHP code. That could happen for a number of reasons: mispelling, missing include statements or simply not being defined.

As you see those are only notice messsages, they can be disabled if desired editing the php.ini file or like this:

error_reporting(E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE);
