    I've been noticing something lately on my 9 month old affiliate site that pages and some images are starting to be de-indexed.

    The site is pretty white-hat. All of the content is completely original and things we're done the right way. Thankfully, the traffic is actually staying the same or even increasing. So I'm not sure if this matters, but it definitely is alarming. What's the deal??

    Are you sure the Google crawler can still access them?

    Do a crawl test in WMT.

    you would have to check which pages are not indexed and find out the problem. WMT data doesn't give much info you need.

    Thanks guys, is there a bulk way to check which pages are being de-indexed? I did go into each post in WP and force the YOAST advanced tab stuff to Always Index and Always Include to see if that does anything.

    I suggest you to check manually also see the results on domain name so it will show how many results are in Google search. Indexing stats never worked with me, but only the impressions and traffic i'll consider.

    I'm sure there are tools in downloads sections that can bulk check indexed status. You can also do a site:website.com and see for yourself.

    I believe its an on-page SEO issue. Check your robots.txt document and SEO plugins to verify you are not blocking Googlebot. Moreover, verify your GWT record has not been ruptured.

    Good luck!
