    I have installed WordPress theme on my new blog.
    And, this theme have 30 posts with it (Demo Data)..
    I have removed all the posts but, before removing
    Google crawls my site.. And Now its been 3rd day, google did not crawl any page of my blog,

    I also have written new articles, but it is not showing on google.
    Also, webmaster still showing error for previous posts (URL missing)...

    I am just curious that Maybe Google thinks my site is spam, and he is not crawling again..
    Because the demo data that came with theme, and it surely will be all over the internet.
    What should i do?

    When you are in the development stage of a site and are using the theme's demo content, you should check the box in settings that discourages search engines from indexing the site. Then uncheck it when you're done or close to done.

    Type site: yourdomain.com into google and see if those posts come up. If not, they haven't been indexed yet and probably won't be since you deleted them.

    Just keep building your site. Once you get to a comfortable place submit the site map.

    Why are you worried?? New domain is 5$.

    Use that domain to test new things (seo, plugins, backlinks)

    He isn't worried anymore. Or at least, he shouldn't be.

    OP: Those pages won't index. You can also submit your sites new pages to a few indexing services. There are free ones. You can do it on scrapebox,too.

    Use webmaster tools to de index those sample content pages if you must. Submit a sitemap to Google and it will clear itself up.

    Thank you for ur help, Actually the new articles got index.
    But not reviving any single visit by google search result.
    So, I was thinking maybe of those sample articles, google considering my site as SPAM. and not showing in his search result
