Incorrect website showing up as subpage in search results

by @tiff_frazier (149), 6 months ago

Hello! My company manages websites that are set up on a subfolder structure. Two websites have very similar names, one that has "North Dallas & Park Cities" in the name and one that includes "Northwest Dallas". I'm having an issue with a Northwest Dallas website page link showing up as one of the sub page results under the North Dallas & Park Cities primary search result. I tried changing the meta tags to include "NW Dallas" to try and make them more distinct and requested Google to recrawl the sites, but am still seeing the same issue with that one incorrect link nested under the other site's results. Wondering if anyone else has dealt with this and has a solution?

Thanks!

No @tiff_frazier, it's not working. It is giving a 404 not found error.

This pattern of search result is shown when a query brings multiple search results from a same domain. The strongest page for the query is the first URL shown and rest web pages from the website are shown under it.

As you want a particular page should not appear under a URL when a particular query is searched, that page should not have those keywords. That unwanted page should be optimized for other keywords. There is no alternative solution for it.
