    SEO - Google not showing main page

    Did a simple 3 main page website for a relative who sells sculptures, pages have images which you can click to show a detail page.

    Url is hernamesculptures.com. If I do a search for "her name sculptures" it shows the detail pages about a single sculpture but not the index page or other main pages. SEO is not an issue generally as the site only really needs to be found by people she knows or has contacted but they need to go straight to her main pages without typing in exact URL.

    Got all pages in sitemap with appropriate priorities, title, description etc in headers and "Her Name Sculptures" in H1.

    Any SEO sorts think of a reason? Ta.

      Try and get some links to the site from directories or other sites that you can get a link from. Make sure the home page is the one you link to and then Google should start to favour the site's home page rather than an internal page.

            Cheers all.

            There are a small number of sites, mainly art groups she belongs to, that could link to there. Will ask her to talk to them.

            Did google site:www.annoyingsistercrap.com and all the pages came up in expected order.

              There's a hidden monster in www.annoyingsistercrap.com MS. Visit that and you may never be seen again.

                No

                Might buy the domain and whack some ads up to capture the valuable traffic xog's inadvertently sent that way

                  I was told her name was "groan". If you insist on looking that up, do it from your personal device.
