    Unhappy I don't like my natural search results - How do I improve them?


    I have a web site that contains food recipes: When I Googled a rare recipe that appears on my site, I saw my recipe landing page which contains a link to the actual recipe page, among other recipes, in the Google natural search results. Let's call this page Page A.

    However, I did not see the URL for the actual recipe page (let's call this page Page B) which is optimized for the spiders.

    Can someone tell me how I can get Google to spider and index Page B and not Page A? Or, at least, include both in the natural search results (assuming that I don't have any JavaScript that is preventing Page B from being indexed properly)?

    TIA

    Vinnie

    When you have multiple pages with similar content Google picks the one it thinks is best. To get one to rank higher than the others you have to send some signals to let Google know that page is the best one. There is some onpage stuff you can do but the easiest and best is to just get some extra links pointing at your chosen pages.
