I look after
[removed] a hair loss website that listed very well in Google for the main keywords in the industry (hair loss) in the UK.
We created a blog about 18 months ago. I'll get straight to the point and then give some more details after - the stories don't seem to be being listed in Google but the site is definitely seen by Google.
OK so a few more details - I did a site search in Google specifically for the blog (site:...) and it found loads of pages. But if copy and paste the title of any of the pages in the blog, Google does not list them, even if they are more than a month old. Considering the home page of the website is listed number 5 for the most competitive key phrase in the industry - 'hair loss' I find this very strange.
This has not always been the case - it has only happened in the last month or so - pages seem to have disappeared from the listings - pages that were listed very high before.
A colleague of mine who works on articles thinks it may be to do with the fact that on our robots.txt page we have a site map link that does not contain pages from the blog (it has not been updated) but this has always been there and it is only recently that this problem has arisen. I am thinking about removing this page altogether - it was only added so that Google would see the harder to find pages which are not actually that imporatnt anyway so I'm not sure if it's worth it because the site itself is actually easy to navigate I believe.
I know people that have set up blogs recently and their stories are already listed in Google within the same day of writing them! Why isn't this happening for my blog?? I write new stories almost every day, and like to think they are useful and relvant!
One more point is that the URL of the blog used to be blog.sitename.com but now it is (www dot sitename dot com/blog - this was changed 6 months or so ago (maybe more) because I thought that if I made it part of the main website it would add value to our website as well as the blog itself.
Any help or opinions would be much appreciated.

And if so, is the content unique or from other sites?
