Q & A with the OldMule: Not show up properly in Google ...

Last Update: March 18, 2014

"Hi, Oldmule, just want to ask if you know what's wrong with my site. I have already updated my All-in-one SEO but the description in google when I search it is still something like "Just Another Wordpress Site" and etc... It seems that any update I did was not reflected in the search engine. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance!" From: Ersonp24


Answer: Do not panic, all is good.

let me explain a little about what goes on when we build a website with Wordpress. It is known as a Blog or a Blogging Platform. When we create a post in our blog and hit the Publish button, it does just that!

Does what? (Simplified version)

You see, Wordpress has a mechanism that Posts the details of the post to the Search Engines, this is called a ping or pinging.

So what?

Well, when we created the website, the original template had "Just Another Wordpress Site" as a post - and yes, it was already published as the site got built, thus it got pinged!

Then we deleted the original post, and we created a new post and hit publish, so it got pinged!

Okay!

So we had a published page pinged. Deleted it and created a new one that got pinged.

Meanwhile back at the ranch!

Google got to hear of the first ping, they then sent out the web robot to check it out, who then rushed back to Google and said put this post into the Google search results. So Google kindly did just that!

So now we have a new post?!

No problem! Remember it has already been pinged when we republished etc. So, carry on with more content building and dreams of making lots of money too, as the Google Bot, (as well as all the others), will come back, crawl your site and list your new post very soon.

More advanced option

Create "Site maps" and ask Google and Co to read them and list these using Google type Webmaster tools and so on. More on sitemaps coming soon.

I hope you find this informative and that I have simplified the points herein.

Please feel to like, discuss and comment and Facebook at top of page when you can.

Please also read and like my other blogs to?!

Thank you in advance.

Hi OldMule,went back to my all in one seo plugin general settings and my google analytic is blank.do i need to fill it up?

If you have a Google Analytics setup within your Google stuff. Web tools and so forth.

I encourage you to go to youtube and type in : Google+ in Wordpress.
Look for videos with high good feedback. The reason is you can see what they do, pause and replay step by step.

This improves the learning by understanding and helps you remember much longer as to what to do.

Ok - the link works fine.
I loaded a plugin "SZ - Google" on my test site: http://affiliatereviews.siterubix.com/
Go and see what happened - obviously there will be settings you will need to make.
Drag the widget to the place, prob grab an image from Google+ if also want.
Hope this helps.

Not my strong point here - are you using a plugin to connect it to the website?

You are being confused -but the site is looking really good!
WA posts do not appear on your website.
Website posts do not appear on WA profile - you can see them when in the website dashboard!
Does this answer the problem?

Mate, 1st - very nice layman explanation of the pg/post ping process (or 4p's ;) )...

2nd
&
Exceedingly more earth shattering for this little duck (please consider I have spent countless 12 hr shifts in server rooms with sysadmins, dba's, programmers etc, & sounding a little non pc - very few laughs were had), is that I would never, and I mean NEVER, expect to read an article about pinging & have a chuckle @ the same time - You sir are my new hero (may b an exaggeration, will see after some rest).

Cheers friend, priceless post - double like from me!

As said before - we rock this and dig it too! Yes server room chat - I think I will pass! Ha!
Thanks again for a fab comment my friend - now get some rest!!
