    Hi, we have a huge eCommerce store which proper SEO and everything is clean.
    We get a lot of traffic everyday. All good and well.

    But if I see google, I was checking today the webmaster tools, I see the total submitted is 5011.
    But indexed shows 706 only.

    What could be the reason ?
    May be, I can check more and fix.

    Big question is when were they submitted? Indexing takes time, it is not instantaneous. On my site I have seen Google index a new page in 10 minutes while other new pages take 3 or more months. It just depends on when the spider crawls the page.

    The bigger the website, the longer it takes google to index it. My website contains over 9000 pages, and some of it probably has not been indexed/reindexed yet.

    Yup. A little too long.

    The next question then is are these all separate pages or?

    First, do you have "robot" meta tags on every page page you want indexed? If so, are they set to "index, follow"? If not, do you have a similar robots text file with settings for each page? If you don't tell the spiders whether or not to skip/index a page, they may ignore the page altogether.

    Second, can you post a short list of items (10 or so) that are NOT indexed and a few that ARE indexed so I can look at them to maybe see why you are not getting indexed.

    Third, a link to the site in question so I can look at it?

    Never waste bandwidth and posts asking permission to send a personal message. Just the fact that we have registered gives you permission. Just send the message. The sendee can always ignore the message or reply to it. If, for some reason, the personal message bounces, THEN ask for contact details in a post.

    Not sure why you want help via PM, though. You have a public website with lots of hits so it would seem to me that having the help public would increase your site's web exposure.

    I randomly checked 5 of your pages. ALL were indexed. Based on the 5011/706 ratio you give, at least ONE of them should have failed and probably at least THREE.

    I see nothing wrong with your robots.txt nor your robots meta tag.

    I don't have time to check all 5011 pages, but statistically there is OVER a 90% chance that ALL pages are ALREADY indexed. Unless you can point me to a specific page that you know is not indexed, I don't see how I can find a problem, which, based on a limited check, does not look like a problem to me.
