    My website is broseleyonline.co.uk which google lists fine!

    BroseleyOnline | Community Website For Broseley Shropshire
    The Broseley Online Competition will feature here every month! with a different Prize (hopefully) every month This Month’s Prize is : Eco-Friendly Bag! ...
    www.broseleyonline.co.uk/ - 40k - Cached - Similar pages

    But then it also lists its direct path :

    Broseley Online
    A community site with local news and events, business directory and transport.
    www.digital-thinking.net/wordpress/ - 35k - Cached - Similar pages

    how can I stop 'google' listing the sites location on the server (digital-thinking.net & wordpress folder)???

    many thanks

    If you sign up for an account for Google Webmaster Tools you can submit pages to be un-indexed. The Google bot is just indexing links as it finds them though so it may come back over time. Why's this an issue? Understanding this may give better solutions for what you're actually wanting to achieve.

    How do you get your iWeb site on Google?

    Check the link I provided. Google offers a way to submit a sitemap of your site. There's also a simpler part of Google where you just submit the home page.

    Do not index - 'noindex' meta tag or robots.txt, do not crawl disallow in robots.txt, do not follow the link rel="nofollow" attribute

    on a completely off-topic note:
    I like your site a lot. The only change I would make would definitely be to fix those navigation tabs on the right side of the screen. First of all a couple of them are different fonts. Some are different heights and all but two are stretched too far horizontally.
