I launched a new site around the 14th of December and it currently has roughly 200 pages written by 12 different established authors interested in this subject.

I checked GWT to see if there were any issues earlier today and was surprised to see that only 8 pages are indexed, a search on Google confirms what GWT is saying. The articles indexed all date from Dec 14th to the 19th and nothing added to the site since is registering, not in Google OR GWT.

Do new sites now need to wait for a Panda update before new content is trusted enough to appear on the web? Dec 21st was the last confirmed Panda update, at least officially.

I'm going to get an answer to this question when the next Panda update happens but am wondering if others have experienced the same.

Do you know for sure that Google has recrawled your site since it was originally indexed in Dec? Check the web server logs. Most "new" sites start out getting crawled very infrequently.. maybe once per 3-4 weeks. The more links that site has, the more frequently it is likely to get crawled and the faster new content is going to be indexed. I've never seen any correlation between pages on new sites getting indexed and Panda/Penguin updates.

Googlebot is visiting the site daily, every page has been visited multiple times according to server logs.

I seem to recall it the ZydoSEO mentioned but we all know googlebot doesn't sit still, just because they were crawl doesn't mean... and all that. Don't think it's Panda/Penguin type stuff, that's pretty common from my experience.

You should check the site: operator to see your site's indexing status. WMT data is always subject to delays between updates which varies from one tool to the next. The site: operator has some foibles, but it's generally up to date.

You go straight to a possible Panda/Penguin problem wihtout stating whether you checked all the *basic* causes of indexing problems. As simple stupid as a stray robots text or noindex might be, most of us have been there and done that.

Questions:
a, Is it on shared hosting ?

b, Are the articles unique ?

it currently has roughly 200 pages written by 12 different established authors interested in this subject.


c, Is it present in an established, Google lurved GWMT account

d, 14/12/12 to 19/12/13 is under 30 days, why are you surprised, do you expect better and when last did you launch a new site,this seems normal for nowadays even with no issues

+1 to the the site: operator thought rainborick.

Adding a sitemap in WMT will also give an indexed vs not indexed page count.

The index count takes a bit to show up so it's a do it, go away for some time and then check back thing.

What does Bing show? They recently updated their stats reporting.
