Homepage SEO

#155421
  • Hello. I am writing articles on my site, which is on a domain name of my own. So I have a blog site. When I search for my name on Google, the About me page appears, not the main page of my site. How can I prevent this situation? I am waiting for your suggestions.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for contacting us and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    While processing any search/query, search engines look for relevant content (Textual, Graphical, and media content) on websites/web pages. Search engines also consider comparing the URL, meta information, and many other parameters with the searched query.

    The issue in your case might be due to less content on the homepage as compared to the other pages (About) on your website. If that’s the case, you’ll need to add more relevant content on your homepage.
    You could also consider double-checking your homepage SEO from your WordPress admin area > Rank Math > Titles & Meta > Homepage.

    In case it helps, we have great tutorials on homepage SEO which you can refer to:

    When you have some time, please give it a try and check other settings and make sure everything is filled correctly.

    With that said, you should try and get more mentions of the domain name on the homepage. Right now, it sounds like Google thinks your about page is a better match for the search query than your homepage.

    Let us know if that works for you or not. Looking forward to helping you.

    Thanks.

    There was only a list of my articles in certain categories on my site’s main page. That’s why I added my Twitter account embed and a paragraph of text at the bottom. However, the situation is still the same. I have never used my own name on the About me page. Maybe Google isn’t changing it because it’s been like this for a long time.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the follow-up.

    Since you have recently updated your content, you may need to wait for Google to re-crawl and re-index your homepage with the new information.

    You can also check when the Google cache was updated:
    a. cache
    b. cached

    I hope that helps. Thank you, and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need further assistance.
