    How can I remove the noindex nofollow on my WP site? or should I be worried about it at all?

    When I look at the page source I have this....

    Code:
          <meta name='robots' content='noindex,nofollow' />
    
    i have the following plugin installed
    Sociable
    Search Meter
    All in One SEO Pack

    Ive looked over the header and index code and cant find where this meta code is....any ideas?

    Go to your wordpress admin area: Settings -> Privacy.

    There are two options there. Please make sure that "I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors" is unchecked.

    :D when you install wp you have a small choose to make '' allow my site to be indexed by google and tehnorati '' :) ... and more ... on like top said on the wp-admin it's that option ... then you can use some of advanced plugins to control the indexing / following the links ... I`m highly recommend you to avoid to index pages from ./category ./tag's and so on ... and filter how much you can the '' follow '' links from your site .. if you are working hard on it ... it's not a point to risk to get penalty's
