    google search for my site shows index of /

    When I do a Google search for the name of my website - AyrshireMinis.com with the string "ayrshire minis" it shows as

    Code:
    Index of /
    email.php 29-Oct-2007 16:07 1k [ ] error_log 31-Oct-2007 08:39 7k [DIR] images/ 19-Oct-2007 15:30 - [DIR] mini/ 30-Oct-2007 17:39 - [TXT] ...
    ayrshireminis.com/ - 2k - Cached - Similar pages
    This is the URL:
    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ayr...ient=firefox-a

    Does anyone have any idea why that is? Why is it not just showing my html <title> ?

    Cheers,

    Googlebot has cached a version of the page that is older than the current one. This is when there was no default page to be displayed, so Apache listed all the files in that folder.

    I expect it'll be fixed when it crawls your site again.

    ah.....that makes sense. as when originally FTP'd the code to the server there was some scripts missing. how often does Googlebot crawl the site do you reckon?

    It depends on how often it thinks you have new content, and how often it runs across a link to your website.

    to be honest after posting this message nearly a month ago my Google position for a search of "ayrshire minis" has certainly got alot better and I am pretty pleased to be sitting second for that search, only behind a local car dealership who i can only imagine are paying for advertising.....

    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ayr...ient=firefox-a

    Do you think it'd be possible for me to make it to no 1?
