Only My Front Page Exists In Search Engines
Posted 15 July 2004 - 10:40 AM
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. The only page that seems to exist in search engines is my front page. I have uploaded the robot.txt file as recently advised and still no joy. Any ideas where I am going wrong?

How old is your site? If it's pretty new, give it a good 6 weeks to find and add your additional pages. Do you have links from other sites pointing to yours? If not, then don't expect even your home page to last.

I would suggest the following (in addition to Jill invaluable words of wisdom):
1) Run your site through one of the myriad of "spider simulators" that are available to see how our 8-legged friends will see your site.
2) Use the "site:<your URL here>" command to see for certain which pages are indexed.
3) (Backing up Jill here ;-))Use the www.marketleap.com link popularity tool.
4) If all of these return favorable indicators, relax! Go have a beer (I recommend either birch or root personally) and don't sweat it.
Unless you are into PPC, then nothing around here happens overnight (unless we are talking about a Google update ;-)).

One word of caution here, as we all know measuring link pop isn't easy but I've not found this to be the most accurate tool for Google where it just uses the link: command and this doesn't show the whole picture a lot of the time.

Using the lynx viewer, I can access the other pages. I`ve noticed that the other pages all start for example, with www.insert-my-url-here.com/index.php?id=1 and so on rather than named correctly ie. www.insert-my-url-here.com/news
Does this make any difference?
