You have have spent hours in research and thought and finally have some content on your site. Awesome good work! We are lucky sites on the WA platform seem to index quickly with little work on our part.

Now you are wondering is your site indexed? Why can't I find my pages and posts?

There is a quick fix for this. Check your site with this Google shortcut. " Site: "

Site:yourdomainname.com

When you check your site in this way Google will display all the pages and posts it has indexed for your website.


If you have not already verified your site with Google and Bing now would be a great time to do it. It is easy to do using the All In One SEO plugin. You can verify them both at the same time. This should help you do just that

You can also sign up for and verify Google analytics with the AIO SEO.

You can also easily submit an XML Sitemap using the same plugin. But I would not recommend you create and submit one until you have at least 5 or 6 complete pages and posts.

Google is like a library of information. It is searching for books to put on its shelves. If you ask for them to come and check yours out and they find short pages or posts with little or no relevant content you will have to work hard to get them to come back and check again.

You Got This! Go Get'em!

Thanks for the info. My site is just a week old and checked it based on your recommendation, it appears very quick. This is great, very encouraging to know that what you are exerting the effort is being indexed and seen by the big brother.

Awesome Nerses! Thanks for stopping by

Good information. Will do such as soon as possible.

Thanks,
Sharon

Thanks for your reply Sharon. Good to hear from you.

Brilliant and very correct information. A great share for everyone :)

Good to hear from you Robin I appreciate your time

Awesome Joe! go Get'em

Yes, my new site indexed quickly but after 10 days and three posts, my site doesn't even show up in a search for my exact domain address! Google analytics shows zero traffic which I know is false because I go there all the time.

Any suggestions?

FYI, When I use your technique above, it only shows my first post which was posted 8 days ago.

The second posted was 6 days ago, and the third was posted 2 days ago.

Shouldn't at least the second show by now?

Ted I responded to your question I guess you saw that I am sending you a PM. Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks so much. It saves me asking my next 'stupid' beginner question. . . 'How do I find out if my website has been indexed?'

Thanks for all this valuable info and resources. Just what I needed - and even before I asked for this info!

My pleasure Myra! Glad I could help

This is my next techy move, Tim, thanks!

So right too, titles, text, alt text and sharing on G+ are great, but it's probably not enough, if they can't find the "library books"!!!

Got to have the books Therese! Thanks buddy!

Many thanks for the info and sharing, cheers Tosh :)

Yessir! Thanks for your time Tosh

Thank's for sharing!!

My pleasure Brian! I appreciate your visit

You know what's especially great about this place, Dreamer?
I open something like this - look down the page and think - ah ha I've done that - and them BAM!

There's something I forgot to do!
So big thank you for that Bing reminder!

Shoot Cate i thought it was you!! Thanks for your time
