Hi, i made my website using GP premium.
I created it with only one menu on the header. But when i check on how search engines see my site, i see that they are reading the menu 3 times (2 at the begining, and 1 at the end of the page). Here is the link:
Why are the search engines reading extra menus which doesnt exist? Its also happening in the rest of the pages like
How can i fix it? ThanksJune 25, 2017 at 6:59 pm #338907TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJune 25, 2017 at 8:29 pm #338918Josu
Hi, thanks for the quick answer!
I understand from where the menus are appearing, but there are other pages which also have mobile menus, and the search engines are not reading it on the main page.
Is there something i can do to have only one menu when google sees my page?June 25, 2017 at 11:56 pm #338945TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Google will see how many menus are on the page, whether they’re visible or not. Google reads the HTML of the page, so there’s no way to hide those elements.June 28, 2017 at 7:49 am #340709Josu
Hi Tom, thanks a lot for your answer. Everything is clear. I deleted the lateral menu on moblilephones and now search engines detect only 2 menus, the header and the sticky navigation. Ive got a couple of lasts questions:
-why google see the sticky menu as a different menu and doubles the amount of links? the sticky menu is the same as the header menu. Is there some way that i can have the sticky menu but search engines wont detect all links duplicatred?
– In case i leave the sticky menu for usability. Will afect my seo to have 2 menus with all links duplicated by 2.
Thanks a lot for your patience, and i apologize if some question is not related to GP.June 28, 2017 at 9:44 am #340810TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
If you’re using the latest GP Premium, the sticky menu isn’t duplicated.
Either way, it won’t hurt SEO at all to have duplicated menu links on your page.June 28, 2017 at 11:45 am #340884Josu
yes im using gp premium, but the menu that appears when i scroll down the page on destktop is being readed as a duplicared menu for search engines. Should i turn off something on settings?June 28, 2017 at 8:07 pm #341101
