    Hello BHW Community,
    for some reason, none of my content of my website is indexed by google. I searched via site:http://www.homepage and only my forum pages are. Anybody have an idea? I checked via seorch, it says that all of my pages have a nofollow attribute set to them, maybe thats why they are not getting crawled?

    Your on-page SEO probably needs some work. Change the homepage contents so it's different from internal pages. Get links to the home page. No internal links should be no follow, just don't place the link if you think it should be no follow.

    Put your website in Webmaster tools Bing and Google.
    My content usually get indexed within 24 hours.
    If you work on Wordpress,get Wordpress SEO,very good tool.

    Use Webmaster tools and go in the "Scan" section.
    Here go to "See as Google", now send your homepage and your inner pages.

    In this way your site have to be online in few minutes.

    You May Use Robot Meta Tag in Header.

    or

    You may generate Robot.txt files to overcome that issue.

    Thanks

    All good advice above. Also change the name of the folder you installed the plugin in. Change the robots file in your root folder so that spiders also do not crawl your installed folder.

    Yes, its happening because of nofollow attribute, switch it to follow so that search engine bots can crawl your pages.
