Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
All my previous sites have been indexed in couple of days time by building backlinks from different older sites, social bookmarking, submitting sitemap, etc., you know the drill.
The last site of mine that was created two weeks ago still doesn't come up with any result in Google when doing site:example.com. When I log into webmaster tools I see that my sitemap info says how urls have been submitted, almost all of them (25), but next to indexed urls is one big 0.
Anyone else experiencing the same thing?
From what people have been reporting here, it is those with new websites (not new pages alone) who are seeing this issue
Not sure where you came up with this assessment. ::confused::
My testing always includes a wide variety of factors, including aged vs. new domains.
As others said, the crawling has picked up again, but the actual indexing and re-ranking is still super slow compared to what I'm used to.
Apparently my site has a page rank of 2, but theres lots of #*$!e sites 'under construction' etc.. before you get to mine down at position 300+ (for its best keyword)!
I've read through the Google guidelines with a fine tooth comb to figure out what might be penalising it. I've now done a 'reconsideration request' just so that a real person might spot something wrong. I'm wondering maybe its penalised for being to perfect!
At the moment, I can only conclude that Google algo has messed up.
Has anyone launched a website in the last 6 weeks which is appearing in the Google SERPs correctly?
[Conspiracy]Funny how this has happened soon after Bing got some decent search results. I wonder if Bing worked out how Google works and used it for its own SERPs before deciding to use the information to mess with Google.[/Conspiracy]
Did stretch to the limits of being too aggressive for it and think it did pay... Now on the 3rd page of some very competitive keywords from being after the first 1000 results... Not bad at all.
By aggressive I mean more quality links than it used to be needed a year back when starting a new sites... Funny enough without any indexing rate change (according to the GWT graph).
One other site launched at the same time with only about a dozen links so far is nowhere to be found still...
Google is still showing a page on my home page's Sitelinks that it hasn't linked to in almost 6 months. Is anyone else seeing anything that ridiculous or is it just me?
