    Hi DT members, Being a newbie webmaster in the field of forums i'm having some problem in one of my Indian friend's forum which i help him set up some three months ago. Yahoo and Bing has indexed it. But Google has not indexed even the homepage. She is using Vanilla forum and I tried the Vanilla forum but still no helpful answers from there. Can you please take a look at the forum www.askindia.info

    Would really appreciate all the help.

    Remove or edit your sitemap, setup a webmaster account, ping your website, submit it on digg, delicious and stumbleupon. You site will definitely get crawled asap.

    Sitemaps are documents that help search engines like Google to crawl a site, a carefully thought out site doesn't need one to operate.

    I would verify the domain in Google webmaster tools and then fetch the homepage through the options panel, it generally takes a minute or two and then if there is anything there you are given the chance to tell Google to index the page plus any pages linking from it.

    I would go down that route and see what comes out of it.

    The best option is to generate a free xml sitemap by using an xml sitemap generator which you can find online. There are many freewares online which will help you to generate the xml sitemap. Once the sitemap is generated upload it on the root folder of your domain. Now access your webmaster account and view the sitemap section. The google will detect the sitemap.xml file and it will crawl the pages. It takes minimum of 3 weeks for google to crawl the pages.

    Just create a good XML site map and do some search engine submission.

    robots.txt is also important and you dont have one. after you create your sitemap, create a txt file and insert this:


    User-agent: *
    Sitemap: ***/sitemap.xml
