    Hi All

    I've a website whose categories pages are not been indexed by the search engine all other product pages are being indexed by the Google. I changed the URL of the categories couple of days back in hope they will be indexed but it still not being indexed. I've verified the sitemap in the web-master tool but it is not showing any errors.

    The categories pages include Kitchen wall art, Bedroom wall art,bathroom wall art, livingroom wall art,children's wall art. The site is discountvinylwallart . Please help me to fix this problem as these are my main landing pages. waiting for your reply........

    Not sure how long you've been trying to get them indexed but some times it takes a while for Google to index all of a sites pages. Also you may want to check your robots.txt file and make sure nothing is blocked for the crawlers.

    Well that's the Wordpress standard robots.txt.
    Did you already use Google webmaser tools to resend the indexes?

    Can you tell us the URL of your site?

    Do we face any problem in indexing of pages if we use plugins. I'm not sure about the plugin I need to confirm.

    Depends on your settings.. Whats the name of your SEO plugin? If you're using YOAST's SEO, make sure to check the settings since you can disable category listing.

    Have you analysed the website.Did you find anything that is stopping the pages from indexing are the categories pages connected to the homepage.
