    The new posts of my site used to get indexed instantly, but about 36 hours ago, I published a post, but it is not indexed yet! I published another post 5 hours ago, but not indexed yet. Webmaster tool shows 106 submitted, 102 indexed.

    Any probable reason and solution will be appreciated.

    I am using 3.4 WordPress instead of 3.5. Also, installed W3 total cache plugin recently.

    It can take up to 1 week for an established websites post to get indexed by Google. What see when you say "the new posts of my site used to get indexed instantly" is in fact them getting crawled not indexed. There's a big difference between indexing and crawling. For the normal Internet Marketer, both seem to look the same.

    Wait 1-2 more days. If it still isn't indexed try making a backlink on a high traffic page like a forum etc.

    It was probably just coincidence that your previous post was indexed so quickly and just by chance it was crawled straight after you posted a new post. Sites get crawled at different rates depending on how often you update them. If you only update your site every few days, don't expect instant indexing.

    In a perfect world, new web pages would be indexed instantly every time. This isn't a perfect world, and Google isn't a perfect system. Just because your pages used to index quickly, doesn't mean it's going to for ever ;) So give it a few more days!

    Your main question has already been answered but why haven't you upgraded WP?

    Personally I had issues with my themes when I upgraded to 3.4. I need to do a little bit of reading to make sure all my themes are ready for the update. It hopefully won't break anything but I don't want to face any downtime again. That's my excuse anyways.

    Ah ok, makes sense. Yeah WP is weird. Sometimes my affiliate links get jacked up whenever I upgrade WP for some reason. Not sure why.

    Indexing in less than 36 hours??? Oh that will never happen all the time. Sometimes big G takes long time for no reason.
