What a shame, top google results, blank pages.
« on: July 12, 2009, 05:43:34 AM »
I've noticed on more than one occasion that when searching for the name of a tool, MTO is the first site (and sometimes first, second, AND third) to come up, great! that's hard to achieve, well, click on the links, sometimes it's just a blank page,

try this LINK and click on the second result. This is a big wasted opportunity. What's the deal?

at the very least you should redirect to the main page, better still, search the site for the terms used in google, and return those results.

Has anyone else noticed this, can we fix it?

News to me.  Hopefully the tech guys can figure this one out...

Did not give me any problem, it did end up showing me that Felinevet was offering a Wenger Pocketgrip for sale in 2007 though. It's not relevant to a product review but it's not blank either, hmmmmm. Not sure there is anything I can do, anyone else getting a blank page in stead of what I am getting.

That's what I'm seeing as well.

should now get a redirect page... I don't have time to fix it completely at the moment, but at least it's better than a blank page now!

so was i imagining it or did it get fixed before some of you looked? i get a redirect now, so something changed :)

While we're on the topic of website issues, those menus on the front page should be changed! it's way too annoying to get to the bottom of the long ones.

I get a page not found error before the redirect was put in place.

Yeah yeah, we're working on it... the whole main site should change to a much more user friendly version soonish... now that San Fermin is over here, I might actually be able to get some work done!
