I created a potentially-mature blog, and let WordPress know so they could tag it as mature.
Since this cuts the blog off from the tag system and stops it coming up in WordPress searches, I decided after a while to make it visible to search engines. When there was no sign of Google finding it for a few days, I submitted the URL of the front page to Google.
The blog is http://tnbits.wordpress.org/ (nothing particularly "mature" there yet by the way). Google has now found it, but searches like "tnbits wordpress" only return the most recent post (not even the front page; just that post). Searches for the content of that page find it, and searches for anything else on the blog are unsuccessful.
Here are my questions:
- Might that mean that only posts since I changed the setting are visible to search engines, and that older ones are still marked not to be indexed?
- Should I expect that Google will eventually find the other pages?
- What effect if any does the Mature tag have on what search engines' web crawlers will find?
Thanks in advance.
