Hello, First of all I wanted to thank all the people who built this forum. It's really useful and I loved browsing through the posts. This is my first post and I've read all the rules and will try to keep it related to the interests of this forum. So I have just established a Wordpress blog: (oops it looks like I can't post URLs yet...) And I tried to make it Google Friendly (google is the only search engine i really care about, screw others!), but I failed for several reasons and was left with unsolvable questions that I'd like to ask: 1. Google is not indexing the pages. Even when I search site:mysite it still brings up Tag URLs and what not. I did not even submit the Taxonomy map to google and yet tags show up higher than posts. Some posts don't show up at all even though they're indexed (says Webmaster tools) 2. I used to have the blog hosted under a subdomain but now when I try to remove the old stored subdomain URL, google just doesn't remove it. The removal tool shows as if they're removed but if I search, they're still there! 3. Google Crawler generally seems to be lazy. The preview of the site has been changed for months and still not updated in the Webmaster tools! Can anyone kindly provide me with solutions?
