New worpress theme works quite well, but... giggle msg:4551692 11:41 am on Mar 6, 2013 (gmt 0) Hi I recently purchased a new theme for my wife's business and created all the content pages. It looks like I made a big mistake. I loaded a plug in to generate the XML site map for Google Webmaster Tools. When I generated the site map the URL's came out like this: http://HerDomain.com/?service=type-of-service When I maintain the content the page type seems to be 'Post' This looks like all pages land at the home page and pass a variable called 'service' with a value of 'type of service' Will these pages ever be properly indexed by Google? Thanks Mick [

Did you set up your permalinks? It appears that site map generator isn't looking at the site as a bot would. It's looking at the database. You need a site map generator that develops a site map as the bots would see it. I suggest you locate google site map generator and then set it up to run on a cron job this way it will get updated automatically. giggle msg:4551756 3:16 pm on Mar 6, 2013 (gmt 0)
Thanks Lorax..lots of terms I don't understand so I'll do some research and see if I can sort it out. Cheers mate.
