Hi,
I was just looking through some of the comments and I can see you have an abundance of help.
Johnathan aka @JonLake seems to have you pretty much covered. As do Vickie and the others.

There is nothing I can add much here.

Only this I always found Marion Blacks training super helpful. I love her none fluffy stuff and the ways she says it simplified things massively for me. The lady is a real Tech geek and she is awesome.

I often go back to Marion to doing console and sitemaps as I forget also lol. She is a diamond. Also, your site is fabulous. I use the same theme on one of my sites.

Wishing you all the best. You're in fab hands for sure.

Hi Wayne
Took a look at your website and it is really great
Jon may have the key- Submitting a sitemap
Have you got the SEO All in one plugin with site map in your dashboard?
If you submit a sitemap to Google Console and I am sure all will be great

OK. Well your website and its log posts ARE indexed (see screenshot) so I am guessing you mean that your posts are not showing up on Google Page 1 or 2?

Are you seeing the sitemap message in the Google Search Console?

Does your Sitemap page look like this (see screenshot)

If you do not have .xml sitemap files are you using All in One SEO or Yoast Plugin?

Personally we use Yoast as it creates .xml sitemaps automatically. Rather than change your plugin, the Google XML Sitemap Generator is a good idea. The take the .xml file names and enter them into the Google Search Console. Once you have done that go back to the Fetch section and get Google to revisit your whole website again.

Your website looks nice.

I have looked at your blog post urls for example https://wayneworkfromhome.com/affilorama-revew/ - the word review is spelt wrong. There are a number of incorrect spellings in the urls which will affect your ranking.

Your meta descriptions could do with a bit of work as well. The keyword needs to be in here as well as the title of your post to give maximum ranking capabilities.

Maybe also, you could be targeting keywords that are a bit competitive. If you look for some long tail keywords and try to rank for them. Even if the number of monthly searches are low, if you can rank for them it will show Google that your website is an authority and will then start to look at the whole of your website in a better light.

Do you link to your website posts via social media at all?

I have an idea. On Monday (as I don't work over the weekends) I will take one of your blog posts and run it through some of the backlinking softwares we have to see if we can get it ranking.

Hope that is OK for you and you have some things to look at?

Off to put feet up in front of the TV now - end of the week here in the UK and all that!

Have a great weekend - let's see what we can do for you next week.

Hi Wayne
Hope you are doing great?

Apologies for the delay, my wife damaged her shoulder so I have been promoted to chief, cook and bottle washer for the last week!!

I did run 2 of your blog posts through some of the backlinking softwares we have but it does not appear to have had much effect as yet.

I picked affilorama review and what is dreamhost about.

Affilorama Review was not anywhere on the first 18 pages of Google and what is dreamhost about was on Page 10 of Google.

The first one is still nowhere to be found but the 2nd one has moved up to Page 9

It may be worth keeping an eye on them over the next 2 or 3 weeks as backlinks can take a few weeks to take effect.

Sorry I cant give you better news, but I would definitely look at the things I mentioned before and keep the faith.

Wishing you all the best

Jon

Hi Wayne
I see you have completed level1 in the training which is great and when you keep moving through each lesson you will learn about keyword research, Google Analytics and so much more so I suggest you keep working through each lesson to learn all there is to learn as this will help your indexing ranking and everything else you need to become successful online
I wish you all the best

Are you sure that you are not indexed yet?
Go to Google search and enter site:yourdomain.com (obviously put your own domain in there!) If you are indexed your blog posts will show up.

Are you trying to get indexed (show up in Google) or ranked (show up on Page 1 of Google)?

If it is indexed follow this:

Go into the Google Search Console
If you have the new version, click on "Go to the old version" at the bottom left.
Go into the Crawl section on Left
Then go into Fetch as Google
Click the red Fetch button for both Desktop and Smartphone.
When it populates further don the page, click the Request Indexing buttons
After about 24/48 hours go back into site:yourdomain.com to see if your are indexed.
