  1. Beware of "noindex"/hide from search engines option on any of your pages that you redirect to (like your mobile friendly page), as per this thread:
  2. Thanks for your responses everyone. I'm pretty sure this has been fixed (TBC by a future google crawl), most likely by removing the noindex tag from my mobile friendly page that is redirected to for small screens. I also removed the redirect from the mobile page back to desktop/main homepage based on a larger screen detected, I can't be certain if this also helped (I've done this for another reason: so that google sees my site overall as "mobile friendly"). @colin.irwin not new, the site has been live for at least a couple of years, just these recent changes.
  3. Hmm yes, I'm still troubleshooting it. I had deliberately hidden the mobile friendly page from indexing, as I preferred the main domain to be the one listed in search results. So perhaps it was the combination of the injected code and that? I also had that injected code on both the main home page and the mobile page, so that they redirected to each other depending on the users screen res. Perhaps those vice versa redirects caused the indexing issue? For now I've removed both the injected code and the noindex tag on the mobile page, added a link to the mobile page within my site, and requested reindexing. We'll see if all the pages reappear. Please let me know if you think the above were the likely causes, and if there's a way to keep the mobile page unlinked within my site, and not indexed, yet have my mobile and desktop pages redirect to one another based on screen size. I'm nervous about search result visibility with testing now! But when I have time and perhaps a gap when I'm not concerned about search results, I'd like to get it working.
  4. Hi people, especially @paul2009: you've posted a seemingly elegant solution to this dilemma before, link below. It still works, but with an unfortunate serious side effect: google crawl sees the injected code as a redirect, and no longer indexes the page. Anyone know a way to achieve this without the side effect?
