    Why is my site not crawled?

    Hello,

    I have a wellness blog which isn't getting crawled. The cache is updated by Google on last September 13th. Why is Google not updating my site in their database?
    I have built links after that. I have links pointing to my internal pages. i have site maps submitted.

    What am I doing wrong? Also how do I stop Google from indexing my plugin pages.

    Your site as it appears here:
    http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=...36edbd3c16a1c5

    Ranked 4 out of 17 million.

    It says it was last cached Sept 13, 2009 (click the cache link).
    That's only 1 week ago.

    What exactly do you mean by "isnt' getting crawled"?

    Also ... the title of your site: Health Tips and Fitness Resource
    is so generic, and the content may not fit the title. Google likes
    to have content that pertains to what your site is about, the title,
    description, etc. Right now, it's all about no smoking, but in a week,
    it might be something else. That's difficult to cache and rank.

    Get Google Analytics and also view your webhost web stats log.

    That's the problem. I have posted around 7 or more articles after the last crawl. Those contents are not getting indexed. I havent had such an experience. Normally all my blog posts, once the main page gets indexed, are indexed within 1-3 hours of posting. This seems too long (1 week).

    Right now, it's all about no smoking, but in a week,
    it might be something else. That's difficult to cache and rank.
    So do you suggest I set up a static front page for my blog? Well isn't the problem you mentioned normal with all blogs?

    I already have Google analytic installed.

    So you're saying that the ranking of #4 out of 17 million isn't an issue ...

    You expect that I should be able to type in "bodybuilding techniques" and
    instantly see the post you've made today, at a top 10 ranking? On Google?

    Describe why your site should show "bodybuilding techniques" in the top 10
    within 3 hours of posting. I think it's so unrealistic.

    Am I not understanding what "indexed" means?
    Does it relate to ranking, appearance on Google, or an Adsense kind of thing?

    I think you are not getting the point. let me be clear. i am not talking about top 10 rankings. I am saying my posts are not getting indexed by Google. that means not appearing in googles database.

    Check using site:healthruns.com You can see some pages indexed but the latest posts not getting indexed or coming in that list.

    It's nearly impossible I believe for a database as big as googles to update nearly instantly. It's just like changing nameservers, can take up to 72 hours to go across the world and have everyone tuned in to the new one.

    A week isn't bad, and being #4. I'd be ever so happy.
    Rowsdower! has accused me of having mental problems, and the administrator allowed it. What a great forum huh?

    I guess that the fact that "it used to", but "now it's not" is probably more of
    a Google server issue than anything with your site. You've really changed
    nothing since it stopped indexing. Perhaps Google has changed some of its ways?

    EDIT:
    Interesting ...
    http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=...36edbd3c16a1c5

    Look at most of the posts.
    The first 3 Google pages (hits) are all about rankings, searches, appraisals, etc.
    Maybe the content should be more important than the "indexing".

    I would expect the first 3 Google pages (hits) to be about my health and fitness.
    Why aren't they? Isn't that the point of having the blog in the first place?

    You have some issues with "site ego".

    I am not complaining that I am not ranking first for the term "Health" or anything. i was just wondering what happened that my site is not getting crawled after 13th? My other sites are getting crawled. only if Google crawls my site can they index new contents right? I haven't made any changes yet. I am going to get a coder to modify my theme

    BTW- By The Way!!!

    The first 3 pages cannot be filled because Google is not crawling my site to get new contents fetched ot their database. So my site is still with small number of articles

    does the THEME create a sitemap and ping search engines? Im sure it doesnt, you setup a google webmaster tools account to monitor your sites seo stats?

    ok so it includes all those PLUGINS? you need to make sure every post you make gets added to the sitemap.xml "not rss" and that sitemap.xml is submitted to google.
