Is Google Having Trouble Finding You?

If you are not getting the visibility you’d like on Google, here is a checklist to ensure search engines can find and index your website more easily…

  • Set your Site’s Visibility – ensure the website pages that are public are set to be ‘index’-able
  • Most websites have a robots.txt file where you give some instructions to Google. Ensure this file does not disallows your web content to be crawled. 
  • Submit your website to search engines (GoogleYahoo/BingLocal Listings)
  • Ensure your naked domain is redirected properly to the www subdomain (www.yourwebsite.com)
  • Ensure your website have a sitemap (Go to http://www.yourwebsite.com/sitemap.xml – If a page appears with lots of text and links, you’re good to go!)
  • Submit your Sitemap to Google (better yet, ensure your website will update your sitemap periodically whenever your content is updated)
  • Increase your site’s importance and page rank withe these tips
  • Create or Update Social Profiles by adding links to your website from your social sites
  • Use search engine friendly URLs for your website pages (use http://www.yourwebsite.com/friendly_url and not http://www.yourwebsite.com/index.php?page=unfriendly_url)
  • Ensure your website is logically structured with simple and clear navigation – this helps search engines understand what content you believe is important
  • Optimize your website to help Google index your content correctly – 

    Google likes indexing fast and efficient websites – 

    Why? When Google rank slow and inefficient sites, people use Google less!

Dear ******,

Your privacy is incredibly important to everyone who works at Facebook, and we’re dedicated to protecting your information. While many of us focus our full-time jobs on preventing or fixing issues before they affect anyone, we recently fell short of our goal and a technical bug caused your telephone number or email address to be accessible by another person.
The bug was limited in scope and likely only allowed someone you already know outside of Facebook to see your email address or telephone number. That said, we let you down and we are taking this error very seriously.
Describing what caused the bug can get pretty technical, but we want to explain how it happened. When people upload their contact lists or address books to Facebook, we try to match that data with the contact information of other people on Facebook in order to generate friend recommendations. Because of the bug, the email addresses and phone numbers used to make friend recommendations and reduce the number of invitations we send were inadvertently stored in their account on Facebook, along with their uploaded contacts. As a result, if a person went to download an archive of their Facebook account through our Download Your Information (DYI) tool, which included their uploaded contacts, they may have been provided with additional email addresses or telephone numbers.
Here is your contact Information (inadvertently accessible by at most ****** Facebook user):
[Phone number]
[Email address 1]
[Email address 2]

We estimate that ****** Facebook user saw this additional contact info displayed next to your name in their downloaded copy of their account information. No other info about you was shown and it’s likely that anyone who saw this is not a stranger to you, even if you’re not friends on Facebook.
We recognize that mistakenly sharing contact info is unacceptable, even if you are acquainted with people who saw these details, and we’ve taken measures to prevent this from happening again. For more information on the bug, please read our blog post.
All of us at Facebook take this issue very personally. We appreciate your ongoing use of Facebook, and are working every day to deliver the level of service you expect and deserve.

Thank you,
The Facebook Team
