If you google:
"hiking in cyprus: Avakas Gorge"
(WITH the qoutation-marks) you will get 5 results, all of which are other sites pointing to my blog post, yet my blogpost itself does not show up!
Even if you search:
"hiking in cyprus: Avakas Gorge" [site name]
(site name being the name of my website) it STILL doesn't show you my blog post, even tho it's OBVIOUS this search is looking for my blog!
However google has it indexed, because you can find it if you search:
site:[site name].com "hiking in cyprus: Avakas Gorge"
So if google has it indexed, why is it determining that it should never show up in normal searches? Even when you blatlently search specifically for my headline AND include the name of my website?
If you Google Image:
hiking in cyprus
My picture actually gets first page! But a photo forum gets the credits for it, even tho that forum post clearly links to my actual blog-post.
I spent a lot of time and money on SEO tutorials and tho I don't expect to become a master at it; it annoys me that I can't even get some of my posts to show up AT ALL!
The post was written 5 days ago, but I had google fetch it and updated my site-map the very first day.
