This topic might be already posted in another thread ...I looked around, but couldn't find an answer to my problem, so I am posting here.
I recently wrote a post on a product review and also listed a summary of the post on my product review page (all on my main domain wp site). Initially I was indexed in big G within minutes after publishing the review post, and picked up by Yahoo on the 3rd day. (<--got pretty good rankings too considering no backlinks, and pretty competitive kws)
Then on the 4th day after publishing my review, I went in edited the review (i..e. added a video, made minor changes to the content, tweaked graphics etc) ... during this process I ended up re-publishing the post numerous times as I kept finding other small things on the post I wanted to tweak.
Ever since..., my keywords no longer are ranking (I use Rank Checker) in big G or Yahoo.... though I began ranking again in Yahoo 4 days later and currently still am.
But I am not ranking in big G, so today I checked the urls using "site: my url" and neither url is indexed in big G.
Is there a way to get theses 2 urls indexed again?
(FYI) During this time I have submitted articles (on the product) to several major article directories - using links to my review page & to a new squidoo lens I created for this prod review (<-- which is 5 days old and not yet indexed either), ... the squidoo lens points to my review page and the vendor's sales page. Hopefully this will help get my pages re-indexed, but not sure.
Am I correct in thinking it was the numerous re-publishing of my review post (as I have an extensive pinging list on this wp site) that caused my post to become de-indexed? If so why did the prod review page become de-indexed as well, for I never messed with that one after posting the review summary?
Things that make me go hmmm...
Sorry for such a long post, may seem a little confusing ...so let me summarize my main questions:
1. What caused my de-indexing?
2. How can I get the 2 urls re-indexed?
3. What should I do in the future to avoid being de-indexed when revamping published posts? (if this is what caused the problem in the first place)
4. How can I get my Squidoo lens indexed?
Thanks in advance for your time & input.
