Original site started in 2000, did awesome for 10 years until May Day 2010, since then it's been a slow, bumpy ride down hill. I understand many of the reasons, mobile devices, the proliferation of freebie versions of my material on Ads sites, the "evil" G wanting everyone's traffic, the economy etc, etc.
I've been working on a blog for a few years. put it in a /m directory.
Google hardly noticed it there. Always wanted to upgrade the site to CMS. The html with the blog never indexed. They just didn't like to see the two side by side.
About three weeks ago, I scrapped the 70 pages of old html and moved all those pages to Wordpress. Moved everything to the root and have a permalink program catching all possible 301s. Cleaned up all broken links. Three weeks later and G has indexed about 350 of 3037 pages and posts and 468 of 675 images. Each day they index a few more.
Now it's all under one roof.
Site:mydomain.com returns 2940 results...all appear to be valid URL's
I also ran a rank check on about 100 of my top key phrases. 95% rank on page 1, most in the 1, 2 or 3 position.
So, here I am, looking a Google Anlytics Real Time Live display and there's a big goose egg on the display. ZERO!
Every once in a while I get a visit...maybe two, but never more. I'm on a dedicated server with plenty of horsepower. Site loads quickly and gets a A/B rating on GTmetrics.
If I type my top key phrases into G, I get my site, so where are all the visitors? Am I in some kind of strange sand box?
