it's about the time / moment when the bot see your urls ... if you don't delete faster the default stuff's from WP ... this can happens ...
But I just don't get it...you know, I never upload anything to a new domain until I start to develop it...since I'm very meticulous (or paranoid, choice is yours ), before I start to develop a domain I always do the site:mydomainname in G to be sure I'm not already indexed for some strange reasons and therefore sandboxed for lack of content.
And I can swear you that the domains I'm talking about here weren't indexed in G before I started to develop them. Besides, the first thing I do when I upload WP, is to add my own original content deleting the default stuff...
when i upload wordpress to the server i always upload the ALL in one seo in the plugin folder. as soon as it s set up i activate theplugin and change the permalinks and also delete all post, pages categories links etc.
Dont know if you are doing that but ive never had the same problem mate
answer is very simple:
FIRST create your content AND THEN start linking .
you probably started linking and after that, you created content, so bots visited your site before there was anything interesting on it.
I do the exact same as that and I've never had any problems.
Hey, I'm not that naive man, if you look into my previous posts you'll see that I'm doing exactly like your first sentence.
Anyway, thanx for your post.
I use the same plugin and I do the same exact steps.
Maybe is a problem of my hosting company (Aruba)?
I doubt it...as long as the content is updating immediately for you theres no reason it shouldn't for the bots.
you could make the content offline, format it for wordpress (backup), and upload the entire thing at the same time via the restore backup option from wordpress...
or get more than just the digg link so the bots come back to your site more than once and update the new content that you've posted.
Tyler, I already did that.
Some days ago I uploaded this new site. I posted some link and it got indexed. I noticed the problem I mentioned before, so I posted some more link to internal pages. The day after the site appeared to be indexed correctly (in the page 1 of G).
BUT, I noticed that I forgot to fill in the details of the home page (description and meta keywords) in the All Seo Plugin. So, I filled in those details and spammed some more links in the Interweb to got the page updated in serps.
Well, guess what? The default Home and About pages got indexed again, making the home page serp result totally disappear from G listings...just W-T-F is happening here?
could it be a caching issue?
It could be, but how could I solve it?
Why not just change the privacy settings (blog visibility) to:
I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors
And turn off pinging until you are ready to index it?
Well, I think I'm going to follow your suggestion for my next projects, although I never promoted a site before all the articles are up.
No offense bro, but then what you should do is INSTANTLY delete the stupid Hello World post and the About page.. this will solve your problem definitely.
The only way G can index those is by crawling them.. no pages/posts means no indexing for those two useless ones.
And as mentionned before, to make sure you rank for the good keywords, use the AllInOneSEO plugin
