I have a site wich is not indexed in Google yet (about 2 months old), having very good content pages (orignal content not duplicate). My site's pages are dynamic in nature.It is already indexed in both Yahoo and MSN and performing well on my primary keywords.Can any one tell me what is wrong with my site and what should I do (about indexing in Google)?

Best to try to get some quality incoming links and be prepared to wait a fair but longer than 2 months I think.

I did all of those things as well, Sett, still waiting more than a year later.

Good luck.

Put up a Google Sitemap. If nothing much it will at least show you some good statistics about your website including last crawl and crawling errors.

Was the domain previously owned? I've experienced issues with not only G but even MSN when it comes to domains with a prior (possibly shady) history ..

I have already gone through this and also changed it's hosting.

Was the domain previously owned?

It is new domain.

Do you see Googlebot coming to your site? If not then try looking out for some good IBL's. If bots are already crawling your site frequently then have patience, it will take time to get into BigDaddy infrastructure.

If all else fails you could try buying some quality links, perhaps sponsor another site to get the link?

Good luck

My site's pages are dynamic in nature

* Could this be one of the problems?
(unintentional dub content, or hard to follow URLs?)

* What exactly do you mean "Indexed", Do you mean ranking for your keywords?
(If so, sandbox?)

*In two months time I (think) your website should be getting from 10 unique visitors to 50 unique visitors from Google. Does anyone agree?

Suppose my site is www.abc.com

when I search www.abc.com in Google them it shows:
"Sorry, no information is available for the URL www.abc.com"

but Google shows over 100 contain the term links for www.abc.com

ok.

It does sound like the domain could be black listed.

Try and get two or three .edu or .gov type links and wait another month to see what happens.

Go over your website and make sure your not doing anything black hat, white text on white background, keyword spamming, redirects or anything like that (Check googles guidelines).

Sit tight for another month after getting more solid links, if its still the same come back here for more help.

Could you tell us your sitemap status? If your domain is black listed then it might reflect in your sitemap summary.

With such a recent site my guess is you still lack sufficient link juice to get properly indexed, a lot of links that appear in contain the term results are of abysmal quality....

Sett - the first thing to check is wether google is able to crawl your site. Since your site is dynamic it may be causing googlebot some problems.
search google for site:www.yoursite.com to see what pages google has in it's index. If none or just a homepage then you have crawling problems. it should list every page in your site.
If the pages are listed then check the cache to see the last date crawled and look at the snapshot in cache to see if it's ok.
If your site is in the index then you can move to the next possibility but my guess is that you have googlebot problems.

but Google shows over 100 contain the term links for www.mysite.com

My site is not in Cache yet.

sett - first thing is to use the site: command in google. This displays what pages google has cached of your site. Google search this, site:www.yoursite.com (exactly like that)
If it comes up with nothing then you are not in the google index. If it shows all (or most) of your pages with an uptodate cache then you are being crawled ok. If it comes up empty then you are not even in the google index. These results will display the entire cache of the site: in the google index.

If it is not in the index (or only sparsely) then the next thing to do is check to make sure your site can be crawled by google. It may be ok for MSN and Yahoo but googlebot is a different animal.
Ready here it comes.
google search for 'poodle predictor'
Check out the meta header view, diagnostic view to see if googlebot is able to crawl your site. Don't waste time with this tool if your site is cached OK already.

So if I understand it right, your domain name is mentioned over 100 times on pages that donít belong to you? What pages are those? Do they contain exactly your domain name?

what it sounds like to me is that you have over 100 backlinks (or just text references) to your URL because thaqt is what you are searching for but your site is not in the google index because googlebot is not able to crawl it. Use that tool. it is not exactly like googlebot but it's pretty safe to say if poodlebot can crawl it then googlebot can. Or if poodlebot can't then googlebot can't.
If that tool crawls ok then there is a possible bad robots.txt reference stopping googlebot.
Basically your site is not in the index but when you search for the text 'yoursite.com' you are finding many references to it from other sites. has to be because googlebot can't crawl it else they would have by now through one of those links. They would minimum have your homepage in site:

Thanks Reid for this tool,

when I serch mysite in this tool then I noticed it shows

Cache control - private
Connection - close

for both its 'Diagnostics View' and 'Header-Meta View' but for my other sites those are already indexed and having regular Google's cache shows only

"Connection - close" for their 'Diagnostics View' and 'Header-Meta View'.

One more thing when search www.google.com then it also shows
Cache control - private
Connection - close

for both its 'Diagnostics View' and 'Header-Meta View'.

What this tools indicates please tell me.

does the tool show the site content? If so then the bot is able to spider it ok.
connection-close is fine - thats what it should say
cache-control private there is the problem you are telling them DO NOT CACHE THIS PAGE FOR PUBLIC VIEW which is the exact opposite of what you want.
Your server configuration needs to be changed to cache-control public.

[w3.org...]
Here are the header field definitions for server-response headers.
section 14.9 deals with cache-control

googlebot also supports section 14.25 IF-MODIFIED-SINCE which is what you should set up.

Don't ask me how to set this stuff up. You need to see what type of server you are using and go to the appropriate WW forum for that.
