    Problem with site search.

    This was the only section that i could find that was closest to my problem but i hope you can help.

    Its a fairly new site made but when i test it out in search engines it says "Hosted on" then the page name but this happens on all the pages.

    I checked all the code on every page including page names and meta tags etc.

    This link will show you what i mean - site:free4later.co.uk - Google Search <-- Site:Page

    Hope someone knows how i can fix this, its not bad but it would look weird for people searching.

    Thank you and sorry for grammar mistakes.

    It is probably because the site is being hosted inside of a frame or some sort container which is labeled with the "hosted" naming. I have seen several hosts do this with their free offerings. It is part of the reason why I tell people who want to start a website to just pay for a true host and don't use any of these free host solutions. Half the time the service is not there, they rob you of your traffic, have piss poor support and lack a ton of features that you can get with a host as low as $5 USD a month.

    It looks like free4later.co.uk is a site that is doing just that type of thing.

    If Google's algorithms consider that YOUR title element content does not match the search query they WILL rewrite it.

    You should take absolutely no notice of titles and snippets that Google shows for a site: search because they WILL be 'improved' to be a 'better' fit to your query.

    No worrys, i fixed it. It was not any META tags used, it was simply bugged internally. I managed to fix this simply by restarting my website with a new skin.

    Anyways, thank you for you interest in trying to help me.
