    How to remove Product numbers from google search results

    Hello.
    I have an ecommerce website that is ranking in google. However, I have noticed that when I see my listing in their search, before my meta description it will say Products 21-40 of 201.. for example.
    Is there some code I can type to get rid of this? I made my descriptions enough characters, and with this in front of it it cuts off some of my description.
    If anyone could help that would be great. thanks

    As far as I know, no you cannot change it, it's up to Google how your site description ultimately displays.

    In general, the meta description should appear, however if you were to search for the product, it will show the parts the search matched (Products 21-40 of 201). Maybe posting your website will help us better understand the problem you are having.

    The first result on Google seems helpful. http://bit.ly/QHGvV3

    In the example above, Google is using my query ("January 11") and pulling up page content that the algorithm thinks is relevant. Since that copy is really just dates and fragments, I end up with a strange mash-up of on-page copy.
    ...
    So, is there anything you can do to bend Google to your will and always use your META descriptions? Unfortunately, the short answer is "no".

    We can’t tell you anything without seeing your code. Apparently that text is part of the meta description or your meta description isn’t right in some way.

    I would love to post my link, but it is an online adult store and I am not sure if it is allowed? I will post it and hope for the best, and if you are a mod, I am sorry but I just signed up today and not sure if it is allowed or not? Please forgive me if it isn't.
    My site is http://www.discretionadultstore.com.au.
    if someone could let me know that would be great

    Oh, I see. This isn’t part of the meta description, it appears to be what Google retreives out of your page and I suppose the only way to remove it (if at all) could be with Google Webmaster or something like that. However, I wouldn’t give that too much attention because Google isn’t the only search engine and every search engine has its own style of presentation. The important thing is that you are indexed and what is shown there also depends on which keywords people use to search. The meta description isn’t necessarily the only thing that’s shown.

    As to posting your link: I can only speak for myself right now, and I’m pretty relaxed about this but I’d say for safety I’m removing the direct link but let the URL stay there so it’s not too easy for minors to access it but gives interested people a chance, too.

    I honestly don't know, I recommend posting it in the "crawling & indexing" forum on Google Webmasters.
    https://productforums.google.com/for...exing--ranking

    Make sure to mention the products part and ask them if it's okay to post the link.

    In all honestly, I would just leave it be, it's part of Google's search mechanics.
