We are an organization that publishes content via a blog part on our website that feeds a newsreader part. Having recently changed platofrms, we've noticed that the content put our via the blog is no longer picked up in our Google Alerts, and therefore we are wondering if it's being crawled the same way it used to be. These are the two pages in question:

pds dot org/page.aspx?pid=388 (blog)
pds dot org/page.aspx?pid=291 (newsreader)

Can anyone advise what might be wrong with the architecture of these pages?

Thanks.

We would need to see a document for that, BUT if you mean the URI "architecure" ....

... Nothing at all, a long time ago having parameter names with *id* in them could reduce the "depth" that SEs would index, but that is no longer a concern.

As you have changed platforms, that presumably also means that the URIs have changed and therefore it will take time for SEs to catch up with that new structure.

Thank you. Our provider had said the because of the structure of the blog, individual pages are not indexed the same way they used to be. Each blog post no longer has it's own page. I wouldn't think that would cause google to not see the new content.

The new website has been live since late May '12.

Thanks, again.

If it doesn't have a page it can't be indexed.

In a wordpress blog for example, if you click the title of any blog entry, it takes you to a unique URL. That's what I mean by page.

Ok, if each one does not have a unique URI, which ARE what search engines actually crawl, index and list, thost posts will not be seen as a seperate document.
