    Search Engine Visability Errors

    Hi, I have a GODADDY website and I've just purchased the Search Engine Visability tool. I have no computer knowledge at all, just a crafter trying to set up a website 😞

    In the SEV it scanned my website and numbers 5 'Optimize your web page titles' & 6 'Optimize your web page descriptions' have errors.

    5 = 9 pages have title tags with invalid characters.
    31 pages have titles > 65 characters.

    6 = 26 pages have non-alpha characters in their description meta tags.
    34 pages have description tags > 155 characters.
    12 pages have no description tags.

    So I went into the first error and tried to fix the 9 pages by resetting or deleting the contects and rewriting it; I did the 9 then I clicked 'Publish All Pages' to which I got another error - "It looks like you have not created your site with us. What would you like to do?" Go Daddy website builder 'Buy Now' I do have a godaddy website so I'm not sure whats happening or how to fix all  these errors. Any help would be sincerely appreciated Thank you

    Good Morning!


    If the SEV tool is showing errors when trying to use it I would recommend calling in and talking to one of our Support Representatives so they can take a look for you. Check out our contact page for more details!


    Hi Colacat, I had the same issue as I am an Artist but have limited technical knowledge. You have probably purchased the same SEV as me which does not connect to your website. I contacted godaddy and they gave me an alternative SEV tool which is newer and does connect to your website - it does cost a bit more, but is worth it. I would give them a ring if you haven't already done so.


    I hope this helps
