    Hi all,

    THE PROBLEM: After March 24th 2010 my site stopped being indexed in the Google Blog Search *even though we were every day before the 24th, with 2350 pages still showing in Blog Search*

    ABOUT THE SITE:
    - Page Rank 5
    - 4 years old
    - 10,000 inbound links (to home and internal pages)
    - Unique Content (use a wordpress re-write plugin)
    - 8,500 total pages on the site (7,500 indexed in regular google search)
    - 1,000 - 1,500 unique visitors per day

    What can i do to get it back into Google Blog Search:
    ( i heard a few things that people said...dont know anything about how to get it back in there, so i would appreciate and even pay for help that will help me get my wordpress site back into Google Blog Search)

    I've heard;
    - sometimes meta tags in the rss feedburner feed can hurt it?????
    - any changes on the site may affect it???? - i didnt change anything
    - you are not pinging correctly - its wordpress and plugin does that
    - sitemap is not right???? i have mobile, xml and xml.gz site map all working
    - you are google blog search banned ??? - i have 2,350 pages indexed there
    - you have duplicate content ??? why would it index in regular search ?

    Please help out...

    Thank you

    Unique Content (use a wordpress re-write plugin) .. Probably the reason.. Google can see through that like superman into Lois Lane's panties

    I can understand the Google (seeing a problem with the duplicate content - or re-written content) but dont you think that it would stop indexing in the Actual Search also?

    The same page indexed in Google within 10 minutes...doesnt appear in BlogSearch??

    isnt it the same search ...but for blogs?

    Anyone with help?

    Is your site particularlly iPad unfriendly ? A lot of the internet seems to be undergoing some fairly massive changes because of them. Random I know but possible.
