"Relocate" in Title tag

P: n/a
Hi,

I have a website which, when search results are returned to engines,
displays a site description of "Relocate" instead of the correct TITLE
tag. I'm not sure why it's doing this so any help would be appreciated.

For info, you will be able to see the problem by searching for
www.wiseowlsolutions.com on AltaVista.com

Thanks,

Mike.

No need to check with AltaVista.com. Looking at the source of the page at
http://www.wiseowlsolutions.com/ you can see it starts with:

<html>
<head>
<title>Relocate</title>
<script language="javascript">
var url = window.location.href;

And then the script that is supposed to relocate me to another site.
Fortunately I don't run javascript. Therefore I got stuck on this page and
was able to view the source. Shows you what relying on javascript does for
you BTW. You just found out it is not only the real life person you should
worry about, but also the bots from SE's that don't deal very well with
javascript.

But it dealt perfectly with the javascript. It was indexing an
HTML page (FSVO HTML), and did so correctly. Script sending you to
another URL is irrellevant to what is seen and indexed at *this* URL.
