    Why are my pages not indexed? Only 30/300 pages are indexed after 2 years. I rank well but I'm just disappointed with the amount of pages indexed. Any idea how I could get all of them indexed?

    Sitemap installed? If no, read my current thread about it.

    Agreed, you need a sitemap.

    Go to your domain /sitemap.xml and see if anything shows up.

    Do the same with /robots.txt

    Get both, sign up for google webmaster services, and enter your domain.

    Never had that problem doing the things above.

    You absolutely need to get a sitemap made and submitted.

    Make list of urls and ping them... If needed make few backlinks and get them indexed which will help you to get pages indexed...

    There are few tools in forum which will make links with who.is kind of sites and then ping it... Should work for you...

    If you have certain pages that are only liked to by a SINGLE other page, it makes it very difficult for googlebot to find.

    aside from the sitemap, which fixes this problem a bit, you should also have a decent navigation menu as part of your site template, i.e. a menu that shows up on every page and links to all major pages of your site. this may sound like a no brainer, but it's often overlooked when people create sites by hand or through an online "website creator" that many hosting companies offer.

    Sitemap, and having links to all the pages helps.
