Okay, Google – what is UP?
I see you. You visit the page every few days. You’ve got about 43 out of 60 pages indexed. Thanks for those that you DID index. But what those other pages? The web page has great keyword density – I even backed it down a bit – I may HAVE gotten a bit overexuberant initially. That was corrected 6 weeks ago – and you’ve been back since then. It’s similar, but substantially DIFFERENT from several other pages that are indexed on my site. My meta tags are all correct,filled properly and uniquely. The webpage content is of decent length – over 500 words – actually I think it’s a little over 1000 words. You’ve got some decent copy to read here, little bot.
I’ve put the website on another server. Given it a different IP, a new webhost. GOOGLE SHOW ME SOME LOVE HERE!
Bing has it indexed – and it ranks #1 over there (and thus on Yahoo too), but you my fickle friend, you… What more must I do to get you to index this webpage??? I’ve created backlinks out the wazzoo (within reason of course, even from .EDU domains). I’ve bookmarked. I’ve tweeted. I’ve Google +1’d it. I’ve “liked” it. Now why won’t YOU?
I guess we can try some other things. Maybe if we let you do the site search for me, you might cough up and decide to add these pages in. Of course, I’ve had you FETCH them directly in your handy dandy Webmaster Tools, and you still ignored them. I’ve changed the URL paths with 301 redirects in place even. Perhaps they were too long for your liking? WordPress likes to give them nice long descriptive titles (and thus URIs) but still… They very adequately describe what IS found on the page.
Google, my fickle friend, you drive me crazy. It’s pretty hard to beat the competition on your SERP when I have to do it on the strength of the site and other pages. It is quite a statement though that I actually rank those keywords 3 or 4 on the SERPs for content on the “Contact Us” page alone. I’ve got my eye on you. We’ll talk again.
UPDATE: Yes, Google, you finally chose to show me some love. About a week after this post, you finally opted to properly recognize ALL those pages and everything came up #1’s 🙂 Now THAT’S what I was waiting for. And my client was getting a bit antsy too LOL.
