Google doesn't seem to like this site

| 1 Comment

Google doesn't seem to want to index anything but the first page of this site. Why?

I recently read an article about how make your site more search-engine friendly and made some changes (using links on titles, using more descriptive titles, etc.). Then I resubmitted the site URL to Google. I'm still not listed, although I see the home page was visited again on October 4 (it's in their cache).

I get hits from Yahoo and MSN.

What's up? Has this site been banned for some reason?

[Update early November 2004] All better now. I'm not sure what worked but I made a few changes a few weeks ago:

  • Removed .htaccess commands preventing indexing of the images directory on this domain
  • Removed robots.txt commands preventing Google from indexing images on this domain
  • Used suggestions in Optimizing your Movable Type blog for Google
  • and maybe a few other changes I don't remember now...

Wow, that is strange. I'm curious about that. I'll let you know if I find out anything about why it might be happening.
