    How to get website out of omitted results?


    Hi, Can anyone offer any help?

    I am not sure why my partner's website is showing in the omitted results for certain search terms (the main) one - the website is here https://goo.gl/gTrP3Q - search term "Pet Portraits".

    On the previous hosting for this search term, the homepage ranked in the 40s (previous - 1-3 years ago) had been on page 1 for a few years)

    Recently moved hosting (about 6 weeks ago) due to previous hosting load time being very poor. Had a problem when migrating in setting up the https (website was http on previous hosting) but sorted about 2 weeks ago.

    When Fetch and Render in Google the site pops back to be about 140+ but then after a few minutes/hours goes back into omitted results.

    Last day or so, set up hreflang with German 'sister' website. That hasn't made any difference.

    Submitting sitemap - Google only seems to want to index 14 pages out of 27.

    The website ranks on page 1 in Bing.

    Anyone able to offer any help?

    Just searched with the site:website function and says 35 pages are indexed.

    Let me understand this, for given search term:
    Previous host - rank = 40
    New host - rank = ?
    Hosting shouldn't have any effect on rank and since it's faster now, rank should be better if anything.

    Indexing is a different issue.

    Thanks - 2+ years ago was on page 1 - the dropped steadily to 40+ last year. Looked at hosting page-load and spikes in download data in Google Search Console - around this time (need to double check but I think still with old host) - about 6 weeks ago moved hosting and had a problem with https (with Siteground and automatically had https added) everything okay on Bing but for some reason Google was trying to crawl https js etc on the backend... site wasn't mobile friendly due to this... resolved - now about 3 weeks ago. For that search term site then dropped slowly into omitted results and hasn't come back.

    Curiously...

    the https seems to be resolved now - when first migrating the site didn't display correctly on Google's Mobile Friendly tester url
    https://search.google.com/search-con...obile-friendly

    I understand (from someone that advised me) that Google crawler was trying to find backend files via https - although on actual mobile phones it displayed 100% okay.
    This problem was rectified about 3 weeks ago - used SSL plugin on Wordpress and now that is resolved. and also shows as 'mobile friendly' on Google...

    I looked at your site,.

    Have some one create a contact page on your site. The solution you have for your contact form is broken and does not work. Also having your own contact form page looks in my opinion more professional.

    Your price page is marked "no index" with robots meta tag, you want to fix that. Scan your site, you may in fact have a few more of these pages... and that would definitely keep you out of the serps..

    Your page title could use some work. Maybe.... Charcoal | Pastel Pet Portraits | UK Artist Sandra Palme

    Personally, I think you could use smarter internal linking in your on page content as well, "reference picture" as anchor text does not seem a good choice of words here...

    Add Schema markup to get the Google Reviews to show starred Serp Listings. Caution, do not add this to the home page.. only on inner pages. 1 page every few weeks. You have lots of reviews on Google and Facebook, so take advantage of them.

    All in all, you could use some on-page clean up and make smarter use of internal linking.. but you should be able to rank that site easy enough.

    I would prefer a two col layout over centered text. ( << Personal Opinion )

    Thanks KnowOneSpecial

    Re the no-indexed page - that is sorted... I wonder if there is a quick way to check that... or just a case of going through them manually...

    Re "Add Schema markup to get the Google Reviews to show starred Serp Listings." how to do that?

    and what/how exactly?

    Use a tool.. much faster...Website Auditor, Screaming Frog, etc.... Screaming Frog I think Chedders has mentioned is free for up to 50 or 500 pages...

    Just add this code just before the closing </body> tag on your site's pages.. again I caution you do not put this code on your homepage nor lie about your reviews. Google will take notice and respond ! Actually look at your Google reviews and get the rating and count from that to plug into the code. It is ok to say you have less reviews than you really do. I generally update the reviews count every month as needed !

    .

    Just copy and paste the below code. I updated it with your correct review count.

    Code:
    <script type="application/ld+json">
    { "@context": "http://schema.org",
      "@type": "Product",
      "name": "Pastel Pet Portrait",
      "aggregateRating":
        {"@type": "AggregateRating",
         "ratingValue": "5",
         "reviewCount": "17"
        }
    }
    </script>
    Addressing your on page stuff....

    you could use some on-page clean up and make smarter use of internal linking."

    You use the following line

    All that is required is at least one good reference picture of your pet that you can e-mail or post.

    You link "good reference picture" I would link "picture of your pet", With links in your content to inner pages you can be anchor rich. I think "picture of your pet" is better than "good reference picture", what do you think ?

    Thanks KnowOneSpecial,

    the script doesn't display anything...

    it is appearing in the source code inside <p></p> - I am not sure if that is correct - or how to get around it...


    <script type="application/ld+json">{ "@context": "http://schema.org", "@type": "Product", "name": "Pastel Pet Portrait", "aggregateRating": {"@type": "AggregateRating", "ratingValue": "5", "reviewCount": "17" }}</script>

    login to your CMS, open up a page you want to add the review stars to and switch to HTML editing mode. Then find a nice spot, e.g. just before the </body> part and add the code below

    <script type="application/ld+json">
    { "@context": "http://schema.org",
    "@type": "Product",
    "name": "Pastel Pet Portrait",
    "aggregateRating":
    {"@type": "AggregateRating",
    "ratingValue": "5",
    "reviewCount": "17"
    }
    }
    </script>

    This script is not meant to display anything, it's just adding information about your page for bots to read. To see if the code was correctly implemented you can use https://search.google.com/structured...ing-tool?hl=en paste your page url and check in the right column if a box appears with your included data.

    Any further suggestions as to why this website is not in the top 200? and in 'omitted results' for "Pet Portraits" - and more importantly - how to get out of the omitted results?
