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:


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?

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.

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.
