why is my site not being crawled or indexed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Can anyone tell me why my site  - www.qualityneedlecraft.co.uk  is not being crawled or indexed? When it first went live last September MSN was the first one to index it - since then its only indexed 6 pages - that has now dropped to 2 pages and the last crawl date was in December. Google has over 400 pages indexed for me.

    Any advice appreciated.

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately, you are ranking extremely low. I suggest reading our crawling and ranking FAQs located at the top of those forums. I also suggest canonicalizing your site. Right now, your rank is effectively being split between the non-www and the www version of your site. If you do not know how to go about doing this, I suggest reading our blog post:http://blogs.msdn.com/webmaster/archive/2009/01/19/optimizing-your-very-large-site-for-search-part-1.aspx

    Good luck!
