Site not indexed RRS feed

  • Question


  • Please could you check the indexing of http://www.chasemethodist.org/

    Site has been running for 7 months now - Google has 287 pages indexed, Yahoo has 324, Live normally shows just 1 (although up to 2 this week!)

    Any suggestions on how to get the 'local' listing entry updated too? Right now we don't show as a 'Methodist Church' in 'Waltham Chase'... 

    http://maps.live.com/localsearch/default.aspx?what=methodist+church&where=Waltham+Chase&s_cid=ansPhBkYp01&mkt=en-gb&ac=false

    Have tried numerous emails/forms etc to get an entry added all to no available. Why is it so hard?

  • Hi,

     

    I noticed we have several more pages in the index (39). I think that if you continue building backlinks, you should not have an issue getting more pages indexed. How are you ranking for your keywords?

    >> I produced a new site www.vaxtrummet.se, made ordinary SEO, made sure that there was at least one backlink, set up the site at my webmaster tools, authentication with XML-method, sitemap.xml, robots.text (which I checked with MSN´s validator-tool). Finally I registered the sites index-page.This was in beginning of september. MSNBot visited the site but nothing happened in their index <<

  • Hi,

     

    There are many reasons why sites don't get indexed completely including rank, site architecture, etc. Have you verified in webmaster tools that you do not have any crawling errors or blocked pages? You may also want to review our ranking blog post.

     

    With regards to the maps, I found your church here: http://maps.live.com/Default.aspx?encType=1&where1=chase%20methodist%20church%20in%20Waltham%20Chase%2c%20UK&FORM=LLSV

     

     

    If you need anything else, let me know. I'll be glad to help.

    no crawling errors or blocked pages and numerous other sites with a page score of 3 or above have links to our site. I have followed all the tips in the blog that you suggested I review and that has not identified anything new.

    I followed the link you posted and I can not see a listing for the church - just the village.

    This week we now have 3 pages indexed on live. Google has 219, Yahoo 314.
