Any Help - Why Are All My Pages Not Indexed?
Posted 08 June 2010 - 03:51 AM
i have a new web site I have just created (removed). Google visits it about once a week (3 visits now), which is fine. However, if I list all the pages in google (via "SITE: example.COM"), it lists 21 pages as indexed. There are a lot of pages missing - and I cannt understand why.
As an example, It lists the "TERMS.ASPX" page, but none of the header menu pages (registration.aspx, news.aspx, etc) are indexed - with the exception of the Forum.
Is there something about the way that the header menu is coded that Google does not like?
Many thanks for any suggestions?

I am doing the listing now - linking it from other web sites, directories etc.
I thought that when google hit a web site, it followed all links down - could not understand why some pages were linked, and others not.
thanks for the information.

They try to determine how important a site is and then decide how much of their resources they should spend on it. It may take a fraction of a second to index a page, and not a lot of space to save information about it, but with trillions of them out there it adds up.
Because of this, it's normal to find that, even after a site has been around for a while, not all of it is indexed. Since Google is prioritizing, it's a good idea for you to do the same. The way you structure and organize the site helps them figure out which pages are more important.
