Indexed but not followed.
indexed and cashed home page only

Why googlebot indexed only home page (which I submitted manually) of my site? I just moved site to better (free) host, and same thing happened at previous one.

All other suggestions are welcome as well.
Targeted to IE and opera only. And to all language groups of former Yugoslavia.

Thank you.

Give it time, I take it that your index page was only recently indexed. Google will be back.

FYI: Google will index a page and then note any links to other pages for indexing next time.

It happened. But all “level 4” (“3 slashes”) deep pages still are not indexed.
To wait for next visit, or to start moving nearer to homepage?

Depending on the number of back links it might take a while before all the deep pages are indexed.

Is your site coded in flat html? Do you have a sitemap?

toma, what you need are deeplinks from other sites that are already indexed in Google. That will immensly help the indexing and also your ranking.

So either go and write genuine and useful content for people so that they start linking to it or ask other sites to link to your existing pages.

Not more incoming links then last time.
No site map.
No significant changes.
No dmoz yet.

But, now all 700+ pages are indexed.

My conclusion:
deep (or populated) folders are not the same for gbot. If there were more "deeps", gbot would leave those pages for the 4th visit. :)
