Light Bulb Moment and Possible Lesson Learned
I had just posted the other day about how I was indexing faster. Usually within twenty minutes of publishing. Then I published a new article two nights ago and it wasn't indexed by yesterday morning when I woke up. The day went on and still nothing. I knew something had to be wrong. I was going through my head all day trying to go over everything I should do when creating and posting an article. I couldn't think of anything I had missed.
Late last night I was going through the training and I heard Kyle mention that a page with too many affiliate links can appear like spam to Google and they'll just pass over it. Aha! I had three affilliate links in my article (two were for the same product) and then a third for a different one. When I finished my training, I went into wordpress and removed the link for the second product. Instead, I put an intermal link to my page where I had done a review about it, which contained the affiliate links. I published and went to bed.
When I woke up this morning, I had the email saying it had been indexed and when I looked at the time, it had happened within 15-20 minutes of me making the changes. So a lesson was learned here, unless it was a coincidence, that I should stick to only using affiliate links for one product per page.
Anyone else find this to be true? I'm guessing that is a good rule to stick with.
