    I would suggest to submit the website sitemap using webmaster tools. I am sure it will help Google to index your web pages.

    is your meta robots tag set to "nofollow" ?? I did that by accident the other day and had my url indexed but none of the other 50 pages. DOH! it's all worked out now though.

    What makes you think it hasn't been indexed yet?

    Drop us a link so we can take a look. It hard hard to assess things flying blind.

    happy to help,

    Interesting.... However, even though google has incomming links indexed, it could be that your site is still sandboxed. I'm assuming your'e using webmaster tools to check the site on Google? If so, see what it's crawled on your site through there as it's always slightly different. Is it a dot com, dot co.uk site or another TLD as it'll show up first on the relevant google TLD.

    Well i dont want to disclose the url here. It says "The website is not being indexed" in the webmaster tools, also it does not show up on google with site: operator or typing the site url to google. As i understand sandbox works differently - the site is indexed but is not appearing on relevant searches and it is different case: it is not even getiing indexed

    I've got the same problem as well. Google has stopped indexing my sites although they have been doing so in the past. Any idea what's the issue here? My sites are singaporeaninlondon.com and londonchow.com.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Thanks Omas. What I was saying is that Google seems to have stopped indexing my recent posts (for two - three weeks now). It's as if I've stopped posting three weeks ago.

    If you type in your title of your site in Google Search and it comes up on page 1 then its index

    It could just be that you have too few incoming links. I had this same problem with a couple of my sites earlier. After building more backlinks from a few more sites, Google not only started crawling and indexing, but started doing so on a quite regular basis (down from months to weeks and now just a few days apart). Which is what we'd all want, right?
