My website has phantom pages - 4/10/2007 11:43:38 AM

We have Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe v22.

We're trying to make a website and we're both new at it. I may even need help just phrasing the question correctly!


Here goes:

We successfully created and published to our ISP our brand new website,

It has several pages: Home, About Us, Bio, Workshops, Contact Us.

These are links that the visitor to our site can click and navigate from page to page.


However, our site also published with several blank pages: for example, Your Company, Services, and several others. These seem to be Print

Shop default headings, which we don't want.

This became a problem when Google found "Your Company" and "Services". If a potential customer puts our company name into Google, the

result that comes up first are these links which are meaningless to the customer.

So, the question is: how do we get Print Shop to not publish these phantom pages?

Thanks!

It sounds like you used an existing web page project with multiple pages and hyperlinks to all those pages. You need to go through all the pages and delete those that you don't want. Then carefully go through the pages you have left and examine every hyperlink. Hyperlinks that link to the pages you just deleted, must also be deleted. Then do a website preview. If you see unwanted pages and dead links, go back to your project and find those pages and links that were missed.

Preview again. When you are finally satisfied with the preview, then publish your web project to folder. The files in that folder are now ready to upload to your web server.

Tip: Don't publish directly from the web project to your FTP site. It's better to publish to folder so that you can thoroughly test your site with your web browser OFFLINE. Afterwards, you upload the folder's files via FTP.

You should also manually edit all the META TAGS that are auto-generated by PrintShop. Those META TAGS would be meaningless to your site. (Write your own META TAGS to include keywords other than "PrintShop".)
