Why Google is not fetching a page properly?


Organic traffic of my website is down from last couple of weeks and I found a problem and need your help in resolving the issue.

URL of the page : http://www.apniisp.com/songs/ (look at the title of the page) & then search “apniisp songs” on Google. instead of the page title I have it’s showing just “Songs - ApniISP.Com”.

I logged into webmaster tools and tried to fetch it as Google and found this:

Message : The page seems to redirect to itself. This may result in an infinite redirect loop. Please check the Help Center article about redirects. (https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/93633?hl=en)

Instead of the source code of entire page Google is seeing this:

HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently

The songs script is php which generates html page through url rewriting and the similar problem is with other sections too.

How can I make it proper to the search engines?

I am gussing and think the problem could be with a .htaccess redirect.

Please supply the .htaccess contents.

Hi John,

I have provide the links of .htaccess file and also a screenshots because when I searched the same url with different keyword, it’s showing the correct title.

Hi Assan,

I just checked http://apniisp.com and http://www.apniisp.com, both are pointing to the same page with duplicate content.

I think this could be the cause of the drop in organic views.

Try searching for a .htaccess script to ReWrite http://apniisp.com to the www. version.

Please also validate the web page because there are 43 errors and 27 warnings. Google is just guessing and making the best of the found results.
