    Hello!

    Theses days my WordPress blog experience slower indexing issue. Now Google takes 4-7 hours. Earlier it takes 2-5 minutes. But my traffic not changed. So I think it may be a technical issues.

    I have unique contents and have good backlinks (social bookmarking sites, similar authority sites, other web 2 sites). I have PR 3 and regularly update the blog.

    Google webmaster tool not show any issue.

    I use WordFence, it shows Google bot visit my blog frequently ( every 5-20 minutes), but not to the new posts.

    Is it my shared host issue or some configuration issue?

    Updated!

    Today I have found one more issue. My Feedburner feeds are not update correctly. It also takes several hours, but my sitemap and wordpress native feeds are update real time.


    Any help appreciate!

    No, I'd say its generalized anxiety disorder most likely.

    Whether its 4 minutes or 4 hours, your new posts are getting indexed very quickly. Most likely its on Google's side. I wouldn't worry about it unless you operate a large news site where thousands of people depend on breaking news.

    Maybe add some internal links to the new posts if you are concerned about the indexing time?

    You need to make sure your new posts are accessible from your home page or tier 1 pages, this means google can find them alot easier. Also a site map can make a big difference. In regards to your host, if you have slow load times then it is time to start asking yourself should you move to a better host. Some hosts suck and you site can take ages to load.

    If it's my side issue I'm afraid it will affect my SEO. That's why i worry. :D

    Yes friend, I added more than 5 links to each post. Some links to new post some of them are oldest posts.

    Dear Articleteller, can you please tell me how do i verify my home page accessible to Google bot? I have no idea about it. I use XML site map generator plug-in. I think it's a good one.
