I have been running this little site for some time.
It gets very few hits, but it never occurred to me to investigate the reason. In the grand scheme of things, I supposed that people just weren’t interested in some rather boring musings or little technical gems that I had picked up along the way.
The other day, I did a check to see what keywords people were using to find the site. I ran off a list for the last year.
It was empty.
No search engines are seeing the site.
The site is search engine friendly in that it has all the recommended robots.txt and other files. I have a plugin (Google XML Sitemaps) that generates the required sitemap files for search engines. I also have the ‘All in one SEO pack’ installed. All in all, it should provide a feeding frenzy for searches.
I went into my Google account to see if I could find any error messages.
According to the stats page, the site has been crawled, on an average of 11 times per day so Google is aware of it’s existence, yet if I do a search for ‘the other fellow’ there is no sign of the site (when it should be near or at the top of the results?).
I am baffled.
Anyone any ideas?
