    Guys, I ususaly get my site indexed within a few hours.
    It's been a few days and the new site just doesn't show up.

    I did ping the site, i have 40 backlinks (built manually white hat), I pinged some, I submitted sites to major engines, I have submitted RSS feed to Yahoo (so far only there).

    The only black hat i did is I used the script that i used for all my other sites - I got it on here, it sends info of your site to Who is - domain info sites. In the thread it promises additional backlinks, but others just see it as a way to get indexed faster. It always worked for me.

    So, i am not sure what's the deal, why I am not getting indexed.
    Any idea?

    Is it a WP blog? NoIndex is a default option for some WP installations. Also you should check your .htaccess file

    Yes, WP. In privacy the option is set as "to be visible and crawlable by SEs".

    What shall I check in .htaccess file?
    Could you please guide me?

    The following permalink rewrite code should be included in your .htaccess file:


    Code:
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress
    But i think you can delete it to see if there is an issue with it. The you can use WP to generate the new one. -> disable Permalinks, delete .htaccess (backup it) and enable Permalinks .

    Plus you have to check robots.txt - you can delete it if you do not know how to fix it. Basically robots is used to control how robots (SE) access your website.

    Make a craiglist post with some nonsense as long as it relates to your site and include your url.

    That's what I have been doing.

    For example if I had a bike site I wanted to get indexed:
    I would post in Services

    Thanks for visiting my post. I own a site called http://xxx and I am looking for a graphic designer or SEO or whatever.

    That usually does the trick for me.

    themvf, can you explain the reason why it would contribute to indexing?

    it's just a temporary backlink, really. right?

    well, as I said, I have about 50 backlinks till now, some are indexed. but the site is not.


    Niche digger, if i delete the code for permalinks, what to add there instead to have my permalinks in order again?

    I am afraid i will screw something up, along with deeplinks that already point to existing permalinks.

    and forgive me my ignorance, but where do I find .htaccess file?

    I go to C-panel, wp-content > theme > theme name > and I don't find this file.

    I can't find it from WP-admin in Editor either.

    Both htaccess and robots.txt should be in your root folder, not in your theme folder.

    I had cases when Google did not index some of my pages. When i had 5 pages, it only indexed 4 pages. I was perplexed at first, but after several months it indexed the last page. There is no way to know why search engine does not index some of pages.
