    Seems you have misunderstood the terms like indexing, ranking and PR. As you were talking 0/10 i understand it`s the PR you`re checking. PR and rankings are two different things. And the PR isn`t updated publicly anymore.

    Cheers

    you have lots of duplicate content and java script issues.
    The site may be indexed under a different domain.
    you don't have a sitemap and your site is blocked by .htaccess.
    In the Meta Tag your site has noindexed.

    There might be issues with the theme you're using, or the domain you bought, if it was an expired or previously owned domain (check on archive.org). A brand new website shouldn't have any issues indexing, even without any content. Just the default wordpress theme with a "hello world" post on it should index within a few days on its own.

    Yes, the plugin should do it but also check if you are robot.txt file is do follow or nofollow. I went through the same issue and I found that the robot.txt file was nofollow so I switched it to do follow and my site got crawled in google.

    If this comes up, your website is indexed by Google. Don't worry too much about 0/10, keep building links and adding content.

    Make sure that you have all the url versions in webmaster tools set. somedomain.com www.somedomain.com https://somedoamin.com
    As far as your sitemap, it looks like either google is not finding it where you are saying it is or that you are giving it a poorly formatted file. What are you using to generate your sitemap?
