When I enter my homepage URL on Google, it shows "Index of ~/user" instead of my page title, i.e, "User|Home".

Is there a way to change the way my website appears on Google search? If yes, how?

Your website page should have following tags for better SEO ranks and Search Engine Crawl.

Search engine will read the following data's from your web pages.

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<meta name="robots" content="index, follow" /> // You can specify the page need to index on Google and follow or not
<meta name="keywords" content="keyword1, keyword2" />
<meta name="description" content=" description." />
<title>My Page title</title>

Only setting above details will not improve your website appearance on Search engines. Should have valid page content, and proper SEO friendly urls.

Hope it make sense..


This tutorial should explain everything.


As explained above, make sure every page on your site has a title specified in the tag. If you’ve got a large site and are concerned you may have forgotten a title somewhere, the HTML suggestions page in Webmaster Tools lists missing or potentially problematic tags on your site.
