Yet another site being ignored RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been lurking here for well over a year, watching post after post about sites not being crawled and/or indexed. I kept thinking that eventually I'd see the answer that I needed. Nope! I've seen a few tidbits that have helped to improve my site, but nothing seems to make any difference as far as crawling and indexing. Like all the others posting here, I see  google and yahoo visiting often and updating their indexes. The MS bot drops in once or twice a day and promptly leaves. A few months back we had a small number of pages indexed, but then they disappeared.  Since then I only see the home page.

    Our site is www.bluealcove.com, and I'd love it if any of you could point out that I've done something stupid to make Microsoft hate me!

  • Hi Babob,

    I see that most, if not all, of your backlinks are coming from link lists and other directories. These sites aren't really helping you. I would spend more time getting one high-quality backlink to 10 low quality ones.
