    SEO Problems-Headline

    I am having problems with the SEO feature. On pages other than my home page, it keeps telling me I have no headline. I DO have headlines on my page but I cannot seem to get past this annoying section of the SEO. I add the correct terms in my headline, but it tells me I have no headline, to add a headline and try again. Please Help!!

    Hello @Digitell!

     

    Thank you for posting! Is it saying you have no headline or that your headline doesn't include key words? I'd recommend reaching out to our support team on this, if you haven't already.

    Hello Heather,

    Thank you for your reply. I have been trying to upload a screenshot image to this reply but it wont let me. It just keeps on with the dots like it is thinking........and the "Done" button is greyed out.

    SO..guess I will try to give support a call.

    Thank you.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    I have the exact same problem!  It says that page has no headline and that I need to add a headline and try again....No place do I see a way to add a headline to a page!  This must be some sort of html code error or something a dev r lower needs to fix?    It's driving me nuts now for two days!  

     

    Did you figure out what the problem is or how to it it?  I would love to get this problem solved! 

     

    Thank you

     

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    Same problem here, it's very aggravating! I just skipped it out of frustration.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    Same thing is happening to me!  I called Tech Support and they told me,  "there is only supposed to be a headline on the home page".  She told me "just click through it, you don't need it!"  WHAT?????  When I argued the issue, that a headline is needed to increas rank, she just blew me off, making excuses for the website builder being easy to use.

     

    Soooooo, their SEO package that they sold us is virtually useless!

    I am new to Go Daddy and I have the same problems as others have posted here.  At this point I am trying to decide if I want to host with Go Daddy or another provider.  So, I really need to to know if there is a solution to the SEO Headline issue.  Thanks.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    I too am having the same problems with SEO!!  Why have an SEO tool, when the Website Builder Doesn't allow a Headline on  each page???  Anyone had any answers yet??

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    I am having the headline problem as well Just wondering what solutions was giving to work through this.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    RIGHT...it doesnt work because your not really getting any SEO...the headline issue is there to 'break' the service so to speak...but one way to find out if the seo wizard works is to measure results and see if you increase in rankings without purchasing any more marketing aids like; ppc, social media, anything promotional other than this godaddy seo wizard....i think they are just using it to extract another $4 out of you...sort of 'nickel & diming' you to death so to speak

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    I am also having the save problem with the SEO- Headline,

    has anyone figured out this issue or received a answer from go daddy ?

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    Tonight was the first time the S.E.O. had me put a header on my store even though it was already there.  They were working on an update to give us the header. Hopefully, this will help me improve my SEO. I wish they would integrate a better SEO program like Yoast into GoCentral like on a WordPress site I am trying to build.

    Best Regards

    I'm so pleased I'm not the only one finding this a real challenge! I spent nearly an hour last night using the chat facility to speak to a Go Daddy advisor. It was a waste of time. They were polite but didn't understand the issue - which is exactly as described in this post and the many replies. I had to send a screenshot and keep explaining the problem but to no avail.

     

    Any ideas on how to overcome this would be very gratefully received!

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    It's not a problem with the SEO tool but with the builder itself. GoCentral was originally a one-page site builder when it first came out, and the additional pages just share the header from the first page. They already know about the problem and plan to fix it soon, so I wouldn't sweat it too much.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    I'm having this exact problem trying to set up the search engine visibility feature. I tried adding H1 tags in the advanced section but it just puts the words on the website and it looks ugly.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    Hi All, 

     

    Have they given the solution to the SEO optimisation? I too am unable to set it up.  

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    I think everyone is having the same issue and Godaddy Support does not know how to address it. I decided to recreate my website using GoCentral because it was recommended to me by GoDaddy and my old website was built in Front Page. At least with my old website I was getting traffic. With GoCentral the Website has been up for 3 months and still no traffic. I have submitted backlinks almost daily and have been hammering social media with no results. Today I used a website checking tool and found that it says that there are no keywords. I have my keyword phrase in the Header, the Header Paragraph and the Header Title but it says that it does not exist. It is starting to look like all those commercials that they are running about GoCentral are a Lie. The support person that I talked to tonight recommended that I call and talk to the SEO support group tomorrow. Mean while I have no way of getting any new customers via my website so it sounds like it was a huge waste of money because there is no way to get any rankings.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    This is not good news for me to read as I just started trying to implement the SEO yesterday.  I have spent way too much time and getting no where.  The keywords end up adding to an already great web site and taking away from the aesthetics of it. 

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    I gave up many weeks ago and never renewed my membership. A big waste of time. I'm glad I never paid after the free trial.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    Thank you for responding. That's very discouraging. I called GoDaddy and asked about this. I was told by a rep he knows several people with live sites that are getting hits perfectly fine, running a great business, yada, yada, yada, and that this wouldn't be the case if this issue existed. He said he'd never gotten any calls on it and never heard about it around the office. I explained to him that it is being discussed on the forum and that people have tested it out and it's still an ongoing issue. He basically dismissed me on the matter.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    I have had this issue since 2014 when I first started my website on GoDaddy. Tonight I am updating some pages and it STILL tells me I have no headline even though I clearly do, AND I am using my keywords. Today is 2/2/18 so this thread has been going on for some time. GoDaddy's customer support is WORTHLESS and I don't believe that a solution exists to fix this issue. I will NOT be renewing my SEO anymore.

    New

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    Yes, it'seems March 2018 I'm experiencing this issue. I suppose it will never be fixed then eithere. I win'the be renewing for this as well. I guess I wasted 9 bucks and change CAD.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    I would have renewed, but since this issue hasn't been fixed, and there has been no response from the company, I would not recommend this service to anyone. This was a big waste of time and money. And they keep asking me to renew! Ha...

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    It appears that nothing has changed!

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    I'm having the exact same problem with v7.

     

    The feature is in GoCentral, but don't Go there - it's awful compared to v7. I tried it and asked for a refund - fortunately for me I never published it. GoCentral is nothing more than a few basic and hugely restricted templates. So now I'm finding after upgrading my v7, the headline is "not found". Hugely frustrating.

     

    Edit: I got it to work! On my home page, I changed the first line of text in the first paragraph to Heading 1, then changed the rest of the text to a paragraph. Ran the SEO again and it recognized that header. Go figure.... I had the title of my page as Heading 1 also, but it didn't recognize it as a headline. I guess "headline" means the first sentence in a paragraph?? 

     

    The only reason I found this is because when I optimized another page, that page I had formatted with the first line as Heading 1 and it was recognized.

     

    Sure would be nice if tech support could share that information instead of someone like me stumbling around and finding the solution.

     

    At any rate, try it, see if it works for you... <cross fingers>

     

     

     

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    I am very glad that it worked for you, no thanks to Go Daddy. It's a shame that they have let this go for so long without a fix. Thank you for solving the issue, I for one am so disgusted with them that I will not be renewing. They keep sending me a 35% discount code, but when I went to use it I was told that it is not for renewals. Talk about shooting themselves in the foot! Now for sure I am not renewing. Thanks again Maloha401, you did great.

    Hi

    Nissim here from GoDaddy.

    I understand that this issue can be frustrating, my apologies for it.
    We are actively working to fix this shortly and I'll post an update once our team solves it.

    Stay tuned.

     

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    Hi @nissim,

    How is the fix going? I am stuck with SEO at this exact spot. From reading above it seems that either SEO or Website Builder is not working. I will need to delete one of these services if it's not fixed soon. Thanks!

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    It is still not fixed.  I am trying my hardest and it just will not work.

    No headline section was found. Make sure you have a headline on your page and try again. IT IS STILL HAPPENING !

    FRUSTRATING. It's 2018 and I too have the same annoying problem. So it is my understanding that I am paying for something I am not getting since that was "included" in my plan but reading the reviews here that problem has not been solved

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    Add "Headline" into the main picture and the problem is resolved. Annoying as I did not want WORDS all over my main page picture. This DOES fix the issue though.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    If you used one of their templates (instead of custom page) you can't add a keyword to the page.  In order to allow keyword search they want $240 per month!!  Just found this out a few minutes ago and am going to look into other webhosting sites when my time is up with GoDaddy.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    Adding headline in the main Header helped me as well. 

    Hopefully, GoDaddy will work on the Header optimization giving more style choices and allowing to adjust the "space" between pages and such. 

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    Hello,

     

    It took me a bit but I figured out how to add the headline.  It is under the Section Header on the Home Page.  Click on Header and scroll down a bit and you will see Headline.  I added a blurb in mine and saved it.  See the image below.  Once I added that I was able to move on and get it fully optimized.   I hope this helps.

    @ maloni401 - Your solution worked for me!!  So simple and could be explained better on GoDaddy's website.  Thank you for sharing 🙂

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    This post is non-functional.  It "rolls over" into another page that is non-related.

     

    Don't waste your time like me.

     

    The problem with inserting KEYWORDS is that the GoDaddy code for posting into the web page is NON-EXISTANT and/or BROKEN. Nobody at GoDaddy knows when it will be fixed - if ever. You will unlimately be referred to GoDaddy SEO sales. They will want you "first-born" as the down payment.

     

    I was quoted $2,999.00 per year, plus other miscellaneous fees. Looks like "Bait-and-switch". I'm going to contact the Arizona Attorney Generals Office inPhoenix, AZ, and file a complaint. I live in Arizona.

     

    Without code to insert keywords, the site will NEVER be noticed by search engines. On the up side, $2,999 will solve the problem for a year.

    Re: SEO Problems-Headline

    It's 5 days after the post - no search words.

     

    Still nothing done.  The site is STILL not discoverable. When will you fix this? 

    When I send you the $3,000 extorsion fee?

    Why do you advertise this? The program used to build the page does NOT work.

    Yet you still sell it? And make money off it?

    What is wrong with your coders? Incompetent? Lazy?

    What is wrong with your management team? Do you even have a management team?

    Are they lazy? Stupid? Being paid off?

     

    Fix the thing!

    Hi Jack,

    Yeah, I never renewed my subscription, and don't plan to. Good to hear that you are going to file a complaint.
