Posts not Indexed in Search by WordPress.com or Google

    My site:

    http://www.ibmathsresources.com

    doesn't seem to have all posts indexed by search engines or by wordpress.com search - even though I have submitted a site map and all privacy settings are public.

    if I search on wordpress.com I get:

    http://en.search.wordpress.com/?q=site%3Aibmathsresources.com&t=post

    26 results - even though there are around 60 posts and 10 pages.

    If I do it on google I get:

    Linknull

    which is the page content, plus tags and a small number of posts only.

    I have spent some time trying to find answers to this online - but nothing seems to appy to this....

    Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    Andrew

    The blog I need help with is ibmathsresources.com.

  2. Is all of that content original to you? Because if so, it certainly should be indexed.

    yes - It's all original - i'm not sure why not indexing.... I've been trying things all day, no luck as yet!

  4. I am having this issue too and have tried everything to get my posts showing on google - including submitting the individual post pages on webmaster tools, making sure the site map is working etc. None of them are showing up on searches. My homepage shows up… but not posts.

  5. @1millionmonkeystyping:

    I searched for your site "ibmathsresources.com" in Google and I found all your posts listed: https://www.google.com/#sclient=psy-ab&q=ibmathsresources.com&oq=ibmathsresources.com&gs_l=hp.3...22156.24037.1.24236.2.2.0.0.0.0.90.173.2.2.0.cpsugrpqhmsignedin..0.0...1.1.17.psy-ab.JBqSkF7de8w&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.48293060,d.aWc&fp=7c755eaf540a7915&biw=1145&bih=641

    Are you seeing something else or are you expecting a different list of search results? WordPress.com automatically sends notifications to Google with every post and page update, and everything seems to be showing up in Google searches properly.

    I hope that clarifies things!

  6. @hannahmillardphotography: You've reached support for the free blogs hosted at WordPress.com.

    Your site http://www.hannahmillardphotography.com/ is not being hosted on WordPress.com and is instead running a self-hosted/installed version of WordPress (using the free WordPress.org software).

    To clear up any confusion, WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two different entities. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    WordPress.org has complete support and documentation sites for self-hosted/installed versions of WordPress at: http://wordpress.org/support/ http://codex.wordpress.org/

    You may also want to submit your blog subpage under Google Webmaster tools to ensure it's indexing your blog pages in addition to your homepage.

    I hope that clarifies things!
